Mr S Berkshire

The trip was excellent, as was the travel arrangements and meals – comfortable mattresses in the tents.
A & C, Yorkshire

A skilfully devised trek linking footpaths to provide variation and interest. Hassle free organisation, good guides, food and service. Special praise to the camp staff!

We think it’s well organised and we enjoyed the mixture of walking and culture.

The Jebel Sahro in Morocco is lower than the High Atlas, so is suitable for winter walking, but still features some wonderful scenery and good trails, with a landscape more reminiscent of the Wild West than North Africa. We fly into exotic Marrakesh and travel south almost to the fringes of the Sahara.

Then, over five days, we trek through spectacular gorges, under towering cliffs and beneath huge buttresses of red rock, variously called such names as ‘the camel’ and ‘the elephant’. We trek with a local Berber guide and our route takes us through several small villages where we meet the friendly local people and share mint tea with them. After our trek we return to Marrakesh via Ourzazate with time to visit the historic Ksar of Ait Benhaddou.

In Morocco we use qualified Berber guides who are ideally placed to give you an insight into and information about their country. The Moroccan government closely controls the appointment of both mountain and town guides. During their training, guides complete courses in First Aid, Geography, History and the Natural Science of Morocco as well as testing their fitness.
Our Moroccan leaders are selected on the basis of their experience, levels of spoken English and helpfulness. Like the Berber culture from which they come, they are all very welcoming and have a love of showing you their country.

More Details

For a complete change of scene from the frenetic activity of Marrakesh, or after a tough mountain trek, the coastal town of Essaouia is a delightful place to relax. Its whitewashed buildings and city walls add to its calm ambience and a stroll along the ramparts or beach at sundown is an excellent way to unwind.
