A long time in production, but we recently finished our Map of the region west of M’hamid El Ghezlane, which should show clients what to expect on a desert trek in this region of the Moroccan Sahara.
After all, in one of our last posts, we mentioned that less than 20% of the Sahara is sand, so you can expect to trek via desert trees and low scrub, hamada (black desert stone), earth plateaux, former villages and earth/pise structures, dried river beds and lakes, and mountain ridges…
Most clients that trek in the desert are always surprised at how unexpected the landscapes are each day! Trekking for around 20-25km each day will really allow you to experience the variety of the desert terrain.
We’ll publish the Map on a new page shortly.
