We’re now at maximum capacity for the Sahara Desert Trek in November 2022. It’s proved so popular in fact, that we’ve decided to give more people a chance to trek for four days across the desert. 

Alaine Harman from Weldmar’s fundraising team has been blown away by the reaction to the Sahara Desert trek in 2022. ‘I’m so pleased that we have thirty eager trekkers to take on this amazing challenge in November, but we didn’t want to disappoint anyone still keen to take part. By adding another date in March 2023, anyone that missed out on a place on the November trek, or that was thinking about it, now has the opportunity to sign up.  

Alaine adds ‘We’ll be trekking through beautiful scenery by day and sleeping under the stars at night. We’ll even be baking bread in the hot sand, and immersing ourselves in the local culture. There’s plenty of support and team building before we go.’ 

Participants will join local Berbers and camels for the four-day trek, and there will be a chance to explore the city of Marrakech before heading home. 

A minimum of £1,500 needs to be raised for Weldmar Hospicecare, and there is a £340 registration fee for the trek, which departs on 16th March, 2023. 

Due to the popularity of this trek, we strongly suggest that you sign up now before it’s too late, and look forward to an amazing trip in 2023.
