Join this long-weekend trek for charity, as you experience the beauty of one of the most breathtaking and largest deserts in the world – The Sahara!

Trek with Global Challenge Adventures in aid of Designability

This charity challenge is to trek for four days through this ever-changing landscape and to climb to the top of the massive Chegaga Dunes, where we will witness the desert sun-rise. The days will be hot and the trekking will be tough, but ‘Team GAC’ with our unrivalled support will help all team members conquer this mammoth desert! Vista’s as far as the eye can see combined with the pleasure of having the volcanic Anti-Atlas Mountains as our backdrop – need we say more!

With traditional Berbers as our guides we’ll experience the delights of Morocco first hand, in addition to being mesmerised by the remoteness and solitude that the Sahara brings. If you want to take part in one of the most fantastic charity events but have limited time to take away from the UK, this most unique trek challenge is for you.

So join us as we conquer the Sahara!
