Ride camels and camp out in the world's most famous desert after reaching the summit of North Africa's highest peak, Mount Toubkal.
You will begin your time in Morocco in the capital, Marrakech, where you will have a guided tour of Old Medina to get you used to your surroundings, to acclimatise and prepare for the trek. The following day you begin the ascent to the highest peak in North Africa (4,167m), a tough climb and freezing temperatures at the top will mean having to use crampons! As a perfect farewell and end to the challenge, you will have a sunset camel ride through the Sahara and camp under the stars. We hope that an attainable fundraising target and Marrakech being well connected by budget airlines, will open this challenge up to all.
