Our thoughts are with the people of Morocco as they come to terms with the devastating effects of the earthquakes that occurred in the High Atlas region on Friday 8th September. Our 2023 Sahara Trek Team were fortunate to visit both Marrakech and Ouarzazate passing through the beautiful, remote regions of the Atlas Mountains and were welcomed by many wonderful teams throughout their trip. The Sahara Trek planned for 2024 is set to include a stint working on a project in the Marrakech area that supports young and older people in the community. We would like to continue to support the region, now more than ever and will take advice from our travel partners should this trip be affected by any further developments.

Sponsor the Trek Team

There's plenty of ways to support the Sahara Trek without getting sandy!

Join the 2024 Trek today!!

We have teamed up again with The Different Travel Company to bring you a new exciting Adventure Fundraising trip.

  • 9th - 16th March 2024
  • This trek in the Moroccan Sahara gives you an insight into this vast and diverse landscape as well as the Berber way of life.
  • You will spend two full days and two half days trekking across ancient dried up river beds, sand dunes and vast sun-baked plains.
  • Return flights, meals, accommodation all included!
  • All trekkers will recieve an Age UK Plymouth branded wicking hiking top and beanie for those cold nights! 

Camping each night gives you a chance to experience the stunning stars in the night sky (weather permitting) and the traditional Berber cuisine cooked by the team is second to none.

Get involved in a local Community Project

You will then spend two days helping a community project in Marrakech which supports vulnerable young people with education and vocational training after they have been orphaned, abused or rejected by their family.

The organisation also supports elderly people whose families have abandoned them by creating a comfortable social environment for them to spend their golden years.

Your tasks will vary depending on the need at the time but you’re likely to get involved with refurbishment, redecorating and gardening which will make an instant impact at this incredible centre.

This is considered a moderately challenging trip. The terrain is generally flat with sand dunes representing the biggest variation in gradient; however the temperatures pose a specific challenge with temperatures historically reaching 40°C. You are advised to be of a good fitness level before departure to ensure fast recovery from each day’s exertions.
