11 hours later and we arrived in the Sahara met by 8 camels and our Berber team. We had a picnic lunch in the ‘outback’ of cold roast chicken, fresh salads and bread.

I can’t believe we are actually here!

We had more stops than planned and it got hotter the further we ventured so it’s now pitch black and we’re setting up camp. Wish I could send some photos!

We’re all pretty exhausted but so pleased to be finally here.

Morning! Our first breakfast in the hotel and we’re off on a 9-hour journey into the Sahara! It’s also a special day for one of our trekkers, Julie, who is the big 50 today! No pictures once in the Sahara but hopefully will still be able to send texts through.
