One of Zegrahm's most anticipated expeditions in 2018, Sea to Sahara explores Macaronesia. No, that’s not a misspelling, it’s a region consisting of four archipelagos, including Cape Verde and the Canary Islands. Among the handful of new-to-Zegrahm ports is a visit to the Sahara Desert, with a chance to hike along the dunes as you search for migratory birds. Other highlights include:
- Traveling with Zegrahm cofounder Mike Messick who can’t wait to explore this region: “Even though we have traveled in the area before, we’re including a whole bunch of new stops on this itinerary; the Western Sahara is actually one of the reasons I’m joining this expedition! We’ll be going into the sand dunes, meeting with local tribes, visiting towns with souks; I’m very excited about exploring this new destination.”
- Discovering the “wild” island of Brava in Cape Verde, nicknamed for its abundance of verdant hills and valleys, laced with colorful oleander, hibiscus, and bougainvillea.
- Hiking through the enchanting subtropical rainforest of Los Tilos on La Palma of the Canary Islands. Home to hundreds of plant species, you’ll enjoy relaxing after your trek at a natural seaside pool created by ancient lava flows.
- Exploring magical Marrakech, famous for its intact medieval architecture and bustling souks, packed with vendors touting everything from fresh produce to high-quality leather goods.
