The Expedition

Phase 1: Acclimatisation

On arrival in Morocco teams will spend the first night in the bustling medieval capital of Marrakech. The team will then travel to Imi Oughlad, a journey that takes you from the plains around Marrakech into the heart of the High Atlas range. 

Phase 2: Trek

Teams can choose to summit Mt. Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa, reaching 4167m. This rewarding trek passes through remote villages and terraced fields offering an insight to the life of the hardy and friendly Berber people.  There are plenty of other fantastic trekking areas that the team can choose from in the High Atlas Mountains, this includes the Todgha Gorge with its spectacular rock walls offering many good routes.

Phase 3: Project

In this valuable and rewarding phase teams can volunteer and take part in a variety of environmental and community based projects giving them the opportunity to become immersed in the Moroccan culture. Past examples have included creating play areas, refurbishing classrooms and teaching English. There will be plenty of opportunity for interaction with local villagers and children. All projects are chosen in consultation with the community to ensure their needs are met.

Phase 4: Culture & Review

Visit the souks of Marrakech, accessible from the buzzing city centre; Jemaa el-Fnaa. This huge square is the focal point of the city and it really comes into its own at dusk. There is plenty to see and experience from jugglers, storytellers and snake charmers to mouth watering aromas and colourful, enticing markets.
