This long-weekend charity challenge takes us on a four-day trek across the ever-changing landscape of one of the world’s largest deserts – the Sahara! Our adventure will take us on a climb to the top of the enormous Chigaga Dunes where we’ll witness the sunrise over the desert. The days will be hot and the trekking will get tough but with our unrivalled support plus the dramatic backdrop of the Anti-Atlas Mountains to keep everyone going, the sense of achievement we’ll feel as we complete our trek will be worth all the hard work!
