On our way to the Sahara - a blog by Haydn Bratt

Its 2pm on Sunday 23rd March and after a very long day of travelling and remarkably good nights sleep the William Hill Sahara Trek team are currently sitting in the beautiful sunshine enjoying a nice spot of lunch. Did someone say this is going to be a challenge?

We are still making our way to the start of the actual trek – and have not quite reached the Sahara yet. We have been in a convoy of 4×4′s for about 3 hours – and have another 3 hours to go! You are probably thinking I thought you this was supposed to be a trek? Well the walking starts later today – with a steady 9K just to ease us into it.
We are yet to see how luxurious our camp site will be – we are prepared for the worse! The team however (Lyndsay, Kate, Amy, Caroline, Debbie, Brian, Craig, Rob, and me) are all in really good spirits and are can’t wait to get going. Can’t wait to get our first glimpse of the Sahara – sure it will be a memory that will last!
