Join #TeamAcorns for the challenge of a lifetime! Trek the sand dunes of the Sahara Desert and camp under the stars!

Experience the vast and diverse landscape of the Moroccan Sahara during two full days and two half days trekking across ancient dried-up riverbeds, sand dunes and vast sun-baked plains. Experience the Berber way of life, camping each night under the stunning stars in the night sky, and tasting traditional Berber cuisine.

At the end of the trek, you’ll spend two days helping a community project in Marrakech, which supports vulnerable and homeless people, providing them with accommodation and education. Your tasks will vary depending on the need at the time but you’re likely to get involved with refurbishment, redecorating and gardening which will make an instant impact at this incredible centre.
