This is done to gain more traction by increasing the impact of the tire and therefore reducing the pressure on the ground of the vehicle in the sand where there is more room (as many people wearing snow shoes can walk on a smooth surface without sink, but a person without them cannot). For example, tires with a recommended pressure of 35 psi will drop to approximately 12-14 psi. A common adjustment is the adjustment of the grain edges, which allows the tire pressure to be further reduced, without the risk of separating the tire and rim. Upon entering the desert, it is common to meet a group of cars and the group leader before continuing. The group leader then leads the pack through the stunts in a file. The main reason for this technique is to prevent vehicles from losing their direction and getting lost. Sand Boarding: near the camp or near the village, in the erg chebbi dunes of Merzouga, you can enjoy your free time and have fun during your stay in the camp with sandboard activities climbing the high dunes and sliding, come feel yourself
Merzouga Camel Ried
Merzouga is a small Moroccan town located in the Sahara Desert, near the Algerian border. Merzouga opens onto Erg Chebbi, a huge expanse of sand dunes north of the city. To the west is Dayet Srji, a seasonal salt lake, often dry in summer. When it fills up again, it attracts a wide variety of migratory and desert birds, including warblers, nightjars and, occasionally, flamingos.
Erg Chebbi Merzouga Sahara Desert
Merzouga, the local tourist center, is located on the western lee of the dunes, together with some 70 or more hotels and auberges running north-south along the dunes. Moto Merzouga offer camel trips into the dunes, taking tourists on overnight trips to permanent campsites several kilometres into the erg, and out of sight of the hotels. Erg Chebbi's proximity to the tourist center has led to the erg sometimes being referred to as "dunes of Merzouga.
Sandbearding in the Sahara Desert
Sandbearding is a form of uneven path in the dunes. A large sports car like the Toyota Land Cruiser is an example of a used car (light vehicles, however, are often better in the very fine sand of the dunes). Vehicles driven on the dunes can be equipped with a rotating cage in the event of a rotation. Like auto racing, experience and skill are required to maneuver a car and prevent accidents. Before entering the desert with a four-wheel drive vehicle or a van for daily use, you need to reduce tire pressure.
