Join Amanda Thebe (aka Fit n chips) for an exciting week in morocco 

28 March - 4 April 2020

The location: 

Imagine narrow alleyways in blushing pink stone, sprawling markets crammed with carpets and spices, calls to prayer piped out from ancient minarets and you have Morocco, the location for the 2020 The Voyagiste x Fit n Chips retreat. A departure from years past, where the retreat has been held in one single location, this one will take us on an adventurous road trip from Marrakech through the Atlas Mountains and deep into the sand dunes of the Erg Chebbi desert. The journey will be an adventure to excite, inspire and remember.

*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 17-seat minibus to and from the foot of the dunes, then 4x4 jeeps into the desert and to our luxury camp. Driving time will be four to 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, Boumalme Dades and 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 cameleers (anyone not keen to ride may walk alongside). 

Highlights:

  • daily training sessions including bodyweight strength and conditioning and yoga

  • a five day/four night excursion into the desert, with two nights in a beautiful camp set in the dunes
