Tal Mireb, also known as Moreeb hill, is a site in the Rub al Khali desert south of the Liwa oasis. It consists of a large plain area extending for 5km from west to east surrounded by large sand dunes, of which the tallest is the 300m high Moreeb hill. Tal Mireb is a major desert motor sports centre, with desert races taking place both in the flat bottom and on the sand dunes. Among the vehicles used are 4WD cars, off-road cars, sandrails, pickup trucks and motorbikes. Visitor facilities include tent camps where people can spend the night, a registration office for competitions, a clinic, a mosque, a sandrail rental and even a children playground. A well-paved 25km long road connects Tal Mireb with the village of Mezaira'a.
