Though I will join in Morroco. There are 2 of us from Switzerland.

Hi Tom,

My name is Claire, and I'll be travelling with a friend of mine - Sophia. We'll be meeting you in Ouarzazate.

I'm not sure how many are on the trip or the demographics.

Looking forward to meeting you there. 

I'm on this trip too, look forward to meeting (some) of you during the Casablanca stop over

- others later!




I'm on this trip as well - where is everyone from?



hi im departing from heathrow england looking forward to it too. Has anyone been exploring before with exodus or just in general to far away places, and can anyone recomend a good walking specialist shop for gear or just a few basic tips ? as im a virgin traveller lol



Never been with Exodus before but done a similar thing with another company before - should be a good trip.

You could try Go Outdoors - they tend to have the best range of outdoor / walking related things.



Me and my g/f are going on this trip. We are looking at sleeping bags at the moment. 

Go Outdoors should have everything you need.



LifeVenture SleepLite Sleeping Bag 750

hello again ive just got myself a sleeping bag of wiggle 2 season feel like im bringing the kitchen sink oh well i suppose it will keep me fit lugging it around lol


I've tried to find out about bars, airside, to meet up during our stop over but without any luck. Presume it's a fairly small airport and most people hanging around for hours will be in our group ... hope to meet some of you there. Julie

Hi Tom

I'm another Julie going on this trip and will be departing from Heathrow.  Like you this is my first time so it would be good to meet up.  I'm coming up from Cornwall and due to bus times I will be at the airport fairly early.

Are you going for the exodus travel insurance ? Can't wait now



Anyone know a decent pub at the airport for pre-flight drinks?

hi henrietta how are you ? have you ben on many trips to exotic locations before




I've done one group tour which was to Japan last year so this trip will be a complete change to that experience.  Since leaving uni I've tried to get to somewhere new each year - managed a bit of europe, bit of asia, bit of southern africa, bit of aus, so time for a bit of north africa - see you at the airport! Should be a great trip.




Hi all

My name is Megan and I'm also flying out of Heathrow.
My first group trip so very excited.

Hi everyone, the other Julie (B) here!

Will look for fellow travellers at H'row, but as mentioned on an earlier post, H'row is huge but CasaBlanca probably not.  My current quandary is what to pack?

- it's warm, mid 20's but with clear skys presumably cold at night ... but being a Muslim country have to be aware of local customs re short etc  i.e shorts & T-shirt during the day with fleece for the evening; do you guys concur?


Hi Peeps

Ive been in the middle east once before and it was warm in the day and cold at nite but not below freezing maybe 5 degrees ish im packing convertible trousers and some shorts plus a few shirts etc definately a softie just in case i suppose its going to be a 1st time experiance for a few of us really then

Hi Megan, Julie & Henrietta

I went to Marrakech a couple of years ago, all be it nothing like this, it was an all inclusive in a very nice hotel!!!  Anyway, we went in to the main city and quite a few of the tourist locations where they were very relaxed with the dress code for women and we were able to wear shorts and strappy t-shirts, what the guide did say was to take something with us just in case. I took a very light long sleeve shirt which was easy to carry and I could slip on easily if needed, hope this helps.

I have Tom & Nicks mobile numbers and  have arranged to text them to meet up at Heathrow, if you would like to have my number then send me an e-mail and I'll  let you have it, then if you would like to join us you can.  My e-mail is [email protected].  Look forward to meeting you all.
