Day 1 Fly to Ouarzazate
Depart London for Ouarzazate, Morroco. Upon arrival we will meet our local guides and transfer to our hotel accommodation for a good night's rest before our challenge starts in the morning!
After an early wake-up call and our first sight of Morocco in daylight we depart on our journey to the edge of the desert and the start of our trek. We stop for lunch en-route and buy a traditional headscarf in preparation for the days ahead. On arrival at the village of M'Hamid we load up the camels and start our trek through bare fields and palm trees. Towards late afternoon we will arrive at M'Hamid El Rhozlane, which will play host to our camp for the night. Approx 3 hours trekking.
We wake to sunrise and stillness in the desert air. After a hearty breakfast we set off past the cliffs of the southern Draa towards the first dunes of Ait Oumir. After stopping to re-fuel at lunch we continue over sand dunes before we each our camp shaded by Tamarisk trees. Approx 6 hours trekking.
Another day brings new challenges as we trek along the banks of the Draa and catch our first sight of L'erg Zaher, the highest dunes in this region. Our afternoon focus is to tackle the steep climb of the dune, careful with every step we make in the deep sand until we reach the top with breathtaking views. Our camp for the night is at the foot of these dunes. Approx 6 hours trekking.
We rise early in time to pack up camp for the final time. We leave camp and head towards the dry river bed of the Draa across which are the Erg Sar dunes where our drivers will meet us. After a short drive to M'Hamis we grab some lunch before settling in for our drive back to Ouarzazate. This evening (after a chance to freshen up!) we will enjoy a celebration meal at a local restaurant to toast our desert achievements. Approx 3 hours trekking.
Day 6 Depart for London
Morning transfer to the airport for our flight back to London.
