Programme : We will spend one day settling in Morocco and visiting Marrakesh, then travel by minibus and 4x4 to the desert. We will spend 9 full days in the desert. Part of the walk will be in silence. Our Berber friend Hassan will guide us, and a team of camel drivers will help with logistics, such as food and camping, allowing us to fully enjoy the place. We will celebrate Mass everyday. There will be other times of prayer, introductions to the day in the desert, a few teachings, and some time for socializing around a meal or a tea at lunch and in the evening.
An amazing experience !
