Lauren's African Trek

About Us

I'm Lauren, a teacher at Danecourt School.

I will be completing a five-day trek covering 100km passing through Morocco’s forbidding landscape punctuated by peaks, gorges, dunes and oases.  At night, I will be sleeping under Africa’s star strewn skies.

This challenge goes beyond the Jebel Saghro region, starting on the Maider El Kbir plateau, before ascending Jebel El Mrakib, and admiring the stunning views. Walking through palm gorges, the route joins the dry Rhris River and heads towards an oasis of tamarisk trees.

The final days are spent trekking along the Tikertouachene River.  

Wish me Luck!!
