Trek Sahara - Explore the world's most famous desert.  This long-weekend charity challenge takes you on a four-day trek across the ever-changing landscape of one of the world's largest deserts - the Sahara!  Your adventure will take you on a climb to the top of the enormous Chigaga Dunes where you'll witness the sunrise over the desert.  The days will be hot and the trekking will get tough but the unrivalled support of Global Adventure Challenges, Brain Injury Matters staff plus the dramatic backdrop of the Anti-Atlas Mountains to keep you going, the sense of achievement you'll feel as you complete the trek will be worth the hard work!

Brain Injury Matters invite you on this experience of a lifetime, as you will not only be taking on this very tough challenge but you will be supporting survivors of Acquired Brain Injury throughout Northern Ireland.

This spectacular four-day trek will take you across stunning palm filled oasis with rocky mountains and Hamada (rock desert) through the dunes as well as watching the sunrise over the Sahara, a truly breathtaking sight.
