Retina UK goes global! Could you take on an adventure of a lifetime and take part in the Sahara Desert Trek in November 2025?

Are you ready for an epic adventure in 2025?

Join fundraisers from Retina UK as they trek across the Moroccan desert, gaining an insight into this vast and diverse landscape as well as discovering the Berber way of life. You will spend two full days and two half days trekking across ancient dried up river beds, sand dunes and vast sun-baked plains.

Camping during the Sahara trek gives you a chance to experience the stunning stars in the night sky (weather permitting) and the traditional Berber cuisine cooked by the team is second to none.

You will then spend two days helping a community project in Marrakech which supports vulnerable young people with education and vocational training after they have been orphaned, abused or rejected by their family.

The organisation also supports elderly people whose families have abandoned them by creating a comfortable social environment for them to spend their golden years.

Your tasks will vary depending on the need at the time but you’re likely to get involved with refurbishment, redecorating and gardening which will make an instant impact at this incredible centre.


You can either self-fund the trek and pay £1,350 yourself (made up of a £350 registration fee and a £1,000 balance), or if you’d like to choose the sponsorship option, you can pay a £350 registration fee and then the remaining costs will be taken from your fundraising. Whichever payment method you choose, we’ll be asking for a minimum sponsorship target of £2,500. Your travel, meals and accommodation are included in your fees.



If you require a guide for the trek, this is something that you’d have to arrange yourself as part of your booking.
