During the Easter break a team of 23 expeditioners from Brandeston Hall embarked on a whirlwind adventure to Morocco in North Africa.
The team enjoyed five days of trekking in the hills, often for eight hours or more a day.
They were accompanied by mules, muleteers, cooks and guides and always found time to stop and picnic in the shade of olive groves, juniper copses or by the meltwater fed streams and rivers. They also explored the flat-roofed Berber hamlets, the medieval medina town of Marrakesh and the fortified ancient fishing port of Essaouria.
The youngsters each took it in turns to lead the expedition and also assumed a variety of roles from navigator to caterer and banker to journalist.
