Trip highlights

Dates: 8 - 18 September 2020

While you explore Morocco’s rich culture and rugged landscapes, you will be helping to raise vital funds to support our work. This support enables us to get more information and resources into the hands of more New Zealanders, especially during periods of distress. On the 11-day adventure you will: 

  • Trek through the red mud-brick villages of the High Atlas, experiencing the local Berber culture and traditions.
  • Climb North Africa’s highest mountain, Mt Toubkal (4167 m), experiencing panoramic views over the Sahara Desert from the summit.
  • Wander through the bustling and vibrant city of Marrakesh, experiencing its souqs, culture, and cuisine.
  • Watch local artisans at work weaving carpets at Tazenakht and making Argan oil near Sidi.

Costs and fundraising targets

The trip will cost approximately $2,790 (twin share) and includes accommodation, transport, most meals, sightseeing and a guide for the trekking component of the challenge. Flights, departure tax and travel insurance (compulsory) are excluded.

There is a fundraising goal of $3,000 that each participant is required to reach. Don’t worry if you’ve never fundraised before, we’ll give you heaps of support along the way and lots of incentives to help you reach your target! To request a full information pack, get in touch using the form below.
