Mr Banks runs the Moroccan Adventure trip at the end of July, every two years. This is a charity-linked trip, with Education for All, and students take part in fundraising activities all year to raise money that helps send young girls, who miss out on their education as they live in remote villages, to school as boarders.
We arrived in Marrakech and spent the first evening in the market square, the next day we went to a little local village, Imlil, ready to start our trek up and around the Atlas Mountains, we trekked through the Azzeden Valley and then trekked further up the mountain over the next few days, until we eventually reached Mount Toubkal and what an awesome experience that was: 4,167m! I wouldn’t want to tell you all the details so as not to spoil your adventure if you decide to take this trip. We returned to Imlil to a beautiful retreat and then the next three days were spent doing some community work. We then travelled to Essaourira, spent the day on the beach, visited all the souks, had a camel trek and returned to Marrakech ready to depart for home the following day.
This is a very brief description of such a fabulous trip, but I would spoil it if I gave you all the details! ~ Mrs Atkins
