Morocco with Shawna Robins

October 2024 (exact dates TBA)

Morocco with Amanda Thebe: Image

Imagine ancient alleyways in blushing pink stone, sprawling markets crammed with carpets and spices, calls to prayer piped out from ancient minarets. Now picture yourself atop a camel, riding through the vast dunes of the desert in a scene right out of a movie. This is where we’ll find ourselves with author, sleep expert, functional nutrition specialist and wellness coach, Shawna Robins. This adventurous road trip will take us from Marrakech through the Atlas Mountains and deep into the sand dunes of the Erg Chebbi desert - a journey to reignite your spark in midlife. Are you ready for it?

*Please note that there is a fair amount of driving in order to arrive at the magnificent Erg Chebbi desert. We will be transported by private vehicle to and from the foot of the dunes, then 4x4 jeeps into the desert and to our luxury camp. Driving time will be about five hours each day for two days to the desert and then back again (for a total of about 10 hours each way), plus stops at some of the most beautiful and significant cultural and natural sites in Morocco, including the Tizi n'Tichka pass, Ait BenHaddou, Ouarzazate, the Skoura Oasis, and the Todra Gorge. There is of course yet another mode of transportation we must not fail to mention: camels! On our first morning in the desert, we will travel in a camel caravan led by camelteers.
