Edge of the Sahara Trek Overview

A very special trekking holiday through the magnificent Sahara Desert in Morocco with time to explore Marrakech

The magnificent Sahara with its Lawrence of Arabia desert beauty, offers an unforgettable Moroccan region which is perfect for a very unique trekking holiday. Home to snaking wadis, dramatic plateaus, tamarisk bushes, acacia trees, hidden villages and beautiful sweeping dunes, the Sahara Desert offers that rare off the beaten track adventure. After experiencing a traditional Berber camp you’ll follow remote walking trails taking you deep into the heart of the desert. Here you’ll be immersed in a rich variety of colourful landscapes from dramatic wadis to magnificent dunes complete with sweeping crests. At night you’ll sleep under star-filled Saharan skies, whilst each morning you’ll wake to a rich red Saharan sunrise. From the Draa River up to the great dunes of Zahar, this is a very special trekking holiday through an enchanting landscape. The holiday finishes in Marrakech, Morocco's most magical city.
