Team ARTHUR Sahara Challenge


The Sahara Challenge 2018 is underway!

Eighteen intrepid and adventurous challengers have jetted off to the Moroccan Sahara Desert on Thursdays 15 March 2016 for a 5 day, 70km trek across sand dunes and rock outlays all for hospice care.  

Guided by Different Travel's own experienced guide plus native Berbers and a caravan of camels who will carry the heavier items such as tents, water and cooking supplies. 

With no running water, no shade and only a beautiful canopy of stars for light at night the group are sure to have a once in a lifetime experience. 

We'll update you below on how Team Arthur are faring up in the desert!
