5 days point-to-point walking with full porterage. Altitude maximum 2531m, average 1830m.
5 nights wild semi-participatory camping, 2 nights 3-star hotels with en suite rooms. Hotel used is clean and functional although the rooms and facilities may be basic and limited and the breakfasts simple.
All camp chores are done for you from erecting/dismantling of your tent to all the cooking and washing up. As official campsites simply do not exist in the areas we visit, we wild camp which means there is no ablutions or toilet block. However, there is sometimes the possibility to find a private spot at a nearby river for a quick wash. Ground conditions and space permitting, a basic toilet tent is erected at each camp.
All breakfasts, 5 lunches and 5 dinners included.
This trip includes 5 days point-to-point walking with full porterage. The maximum altitude is 2531m, with an overall average of 1830m.
This trek involves walking on rough trails with paths scattered with loose stones; some days are demanding although no great altitude is reached and there are no great extremes of temperature to contend with. It is possible that on some nights there may be a frost, especially between November and February.
Please note that the walking is generally a more moderate B grade, with some C grade walking but you should nevertheless be able to cope with this harder walking.
Accommodation standards are below those of Europe and more comparable to sub-Saharan Africa.
Please note that all camping is in wild camps, as few official campsites exist in the areas required.
On some dates, flights may be indirect via Casablanca although the majority of dates use direct flights.
Normal group size and age
Normally 6 to 16, plus leader and appropriate local staff. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
In order to provide a more accurate grading system, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or split grade, for example Moderate/Challenging. Occasionally, there are optional activities available en route, in this case the optional grade is indicated in brackets, for example Grade Challenging (climb Tough+). Clearly, conditions may differ from region-to-region or month-to-month and as such the information given on these pages is designed to act as a guide only. In all cases you should refer to the respective holiday's Trip Notes for further details.
Walking & Trekking: Trips are wholly trekking-focused or simply include a significant number of walking days during the itinerary.
Wilderness: Visit the deserts, jungles, plateaux, tundra and mountains of all seven continents, including Antarctica.
For those clients who wish to travel with a group of other solo/single travellers, on certain trips we have set aside departure dates that are specifically recommended for clients booking individually. Solo departures are aimed at taking away that concern that you may be the only solo traveller when you arrive overseas. Look out for the solo departures (marked with a grey icon's') by checking the notes in the dates and prices table.
However, please note that we inform any couples, or friends travelling together, who enquire about these dates that the trip is recommended for solos, but we do not refuse bookings from non-solo travellers, and we are therefore not able to guarantee that a solo departure will be exclusively made up of solo travellers.
