The Atlas Expedition

On August 21st I set off from Nador on Morocco’s Mediterranean coast to walk 1400km to the Dam of Gold at Ouarzazate across the mountains. With me are Brahim Ahalfi and Addi Bin Youssef from the Draa and Sahara Expeditions and joining us is Ali Ahalfi. 3 of our original camels are carrying our baggage: Hamish, Hector and Sausage and the new boys are Farquhar, Struan and Lachlan. It’s the third part of our Moroccan trilogy and this time I’m hunting for dinosaurs.

The expedition is organiser by Jean-Pierre Datcharry of Dar Daif and sponsored by Craghoppers and NTT DATA UK Diversity and Inclusion Team.

There is a full brief here.
