Trek deep into the Sahara, over giant dunes and to oases shimmering in the distance. Enjoy Moroccan feasts around camp fires, shooting stars and a glimpse into nomadic desert life.

This all inclusive eight day challenge to Morocco, includes a five day exhilarating trek along dried-out riverbeds of the Sahara desert, from oasis to oasis. The route will snake its way through the desert’s emptiness, and along ancient irrigation channels that are still in use today. There will be a chance to camp out under the star-lit African sky, and to even catch the sight of a shooting star! Together, the group will spend the last day and night in the colourful city of Marrakech.

Throughout your training and fundraising for your challenge you will be fully supported by Team Whizz-Kidz and it will be an amazing experience that you won’t forget.
