Sahara Desert Trek 2020

Watch the sunrise over the desert and sleep under a blanket of stars during this once in a lifetime experience

Various dates available throughout the year

This long-weekend challenge will take 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 to witness the sunrise over the desert. The days will be hot and the trekking will get tough but knowing you will be helping people with blood cancer to get a second chance at life will keep you motivated.

Own place

You can secure your own place on this trek by self-funding the total cost of the trip (£912). That way you won't have a minimum sponsorship target to reach, and every penny you raise for DKMS will go towards registering more potential life-savers.


By joining team DKMS, you will receive:

  • Dedicated personal support

  • A branded DKMS T-shirt so you look the part.

  • Fundraising pack with tips to make your target easier to hit, so you can focus on the trek
