Driving on the dunes of Erg Chebbi

     In the morning I decided to have a go at the dunes of the Erg.

Driving over the dunes can be very dangerous, or either you know the way or can "read" the form of the dune or then you have to walk a lot to be sure what's on the other side.

      So, to make my life easier I hired a guide. I must say that I was impressed with the way he knows and rides on the dunes.

Here is a video :

We took us to a very high dune, I was amazed that was possible to drive so high !

When we exited the erg, I was so impressed with the little moped that I asked the guy if he wanted to swap, he would drive my RR and I would try is Docker. I think we was so surprised that he said yes without thinking  !

Arrival at Erg Chebbi .

      After getting the repair done, we headed to the Auberg du Sud, on the Erg Chebbi

Some more pictures already on the Erg.

Both the rise and down of the Sun and the Moon is something diferent in the desert, unfornately my point and shot camera cannot do much but I still tried to capture the magic.
