Sandboarding in the Sahara
The huge African Sahara sandbox is exciting for children and adults. It is hard to imagine someone who didn't or doesn't enjoy playing in the sand. It is multisensory and utterly awe inspiring. The way that the sand shifts and creates sensual shapes delights the eye. Feeling the cool or the heat as you lay in the sand as it molds to your body works to relax your whole system. Grasping handfuls of sand and letting it sift through your fingers becomes meditative in quick time. If you are one to have trouble sitting still, grabbing a board and slipping down the huge dunes can be exhilarating or at the very least entertaining. The hike back up is also great exercise. Here is one desert goer perfecting her board moves.
