A short but adventurous trek giving you a bite-sized Saharan experience as part of #teambarnardos to help protect the UK's most vulnerable children.
The awe-inspiring Sahara Desert is the setting for this diverse challenge with its flat desert floor scattered with ancient fossils, to pristine wind-blown sand-dunes.
The incredible star-strewn night skies are unforgettable - especially with a new moon - and the vast, unforgiving desert is a truly beautiful place to discover.
Berbers and a small caravan of camels will guide us and the remote night-camps with camp-fires and Berber singing are a real highlight of the adventure!
The majority of people will sign up by themselves and meet people on the challenge - so don't worry if you're on your own.
This could be your big challenge of this special year! Signing up now gives you plenty of time to prepare, train and fundraise.
