WILLOW Wood has postponed November’s Sahara Trek because of Covid-19.
However, it is hoped the trek will be able to go ahead in March and to help interested parties find out full details the hospice is organising a Zoom information evening on Wednesday, August 26.
The six-day expedition with four full days trekking through the inhospitable Sahara Desert, will be gruelling, challenging and test you to the limits, but they can honestly say it will be one of the most amazing experiences of your life.
You will be walking for up to six hours each day on the shifting sands of the desert, camping underneath the stars and eating traditional Berber cuisine. Accompanied by camels, these majestic creatures will transport all the necessary equipment and provisions for your adventure.
Experienced Berber guides will be with you every step of the way, as will a qualified doctor, an experienced trek leader, and a Willow Wood representative, to ensure it runs smoothly and without incident.
You will see some of the largest dunes in the area, including those of L’erg Zahar, which are also known as the screaming dunes due to the eerie sound made by the wind whistling across the sand. However, when you make camp for the night and relax around the fire, your guide may tell tales of the village buried under the sand as the sun goes down over those very same dunes.
