Our Sahara Desert treks are one of the most comprehensive there is; a full on adventure deep into the Desert. The drive over the High Atlas from Marrakech allows you to see the vast array of changing countryside, which makes this such a beautiful country.
Our trekking route allows you to fully experience this superb region, travelling through hamada, twisting wadi’s and untouched windblown Sahara sand dunes. You will soon be totally immersed in the desert way of life as you encounter deserted villages and deep water wells frequented by Sahara nomads along the way.
The highlight of your Sahara trek is reached at the furthest point from civilization – the huge dune of Erg Zaher. Seen in the far distance well before, you will climb this 1900′ dune, towering majestically over all others within the Chigaga region to watch the sun set. For most people, this is a moment to reflect on the purpose of your challenge and your amazing achievement.
During the trek days, you will stop for lunches in the shade of the tamarisk trees and as the sun sets, gather together to share a Moroccan feast. The quality of the food is absolutely amazing.
At night you will wild camp amongst the sand dunes; there are no sound, no lights, just Sahara’s peaceful night sky littered with stars. The solitude and freedom of the desert can be life changing and the minimalist existence is both liberating and humbling. Your everyday life back home will feel a million miles away. By the time you finish, it will be hard to leave the desert behind. The rewarding sense of achievement is however immense and you will take home some very special memories.
Your journey starts and ends in the colourful and captivating city of Marrakech. Enjoy the souks within the vast Medina, the Spas or maybe a local Hammam.
