Highlights
Discover Qatar’s desert and Inland Sea on a private half-day trip from Doha
Avoid tour groups and enjoy the desert and dune-bashing with just a guide
View the Khor Al Adaid inland sea and see where desert meets beaches
Choice of times and start points: ideal for time-short and layover guests
What to expect
Book your preferred departure, choosing pickup in Doha from your hotel, the port, or the airport, or from Hamad Port. Your driver-guide will take you south along Qatar’s coast in a private climate-controlled 4x4. Pass oil fields and towns, then head off-road into the deserts that frame Qatar’s border with Saudi Arabia. Enjoy an optional camel ride (own expense) and set off on an exciting dune bash. Carve up huge dunes and slide down the sheer drops sideways as your driver deftly spins the wheel. Continue across desert to the Khor Al Adaid Inland Sea, a vast expanse of turquoise water that forms a natural border with Saudi. Admire this stunning UNESCO-listed body of water before traveling to one of just 3 places in the world where the desert runs into beaches. Enjoy soda at a desert camp here before returning to your starting point.

Exhilarating and enjoyable desert safari and evening BBQ
Oct 2020 • Family
A very well-organised tour, setup by Walid, confirmed by Gizell in the office and executed by the lead driver, Sami. Our three families all enjoyed the exhilarating experience of being driven through the dunes to Inland Sea. We returned to the camp in good time for a BBQ buffet dinner with plenty of activities on location to keep the kids entertained. Thanks QIT Team!

Thrilling, Fun, Easy Half Day Safari
Several friends recommended the safari and we (group of 4) decided to do the half day version for our first time out in the sand dunes.

The website was very easy to use for reserving the safari and paying for the group. On the day of the pick up the coordination with the driver was very smooth. Our driver Mohammad messaged me a few minutes before he arrived to give me notice, which was very appreciated. We drove about 20-25 minutes to the point where you enter the dunes and while he depressurized the tires (for better traction in the sand), we had camel rides and held a falcon (20 riyal and 10 riyal, respectively).

From the moment we started in the dunes it was a blast driving around with Mohammad. He made it fun and while we were completely safe the whole time, he did things with the car that I didn't think were possible. I don't want to spoil the fun, but needless to say it was a great mix of beautiful views and crazy excitement.

After an hour or so of very exciting off road driving, we stopped at the ocean side resort area and relaxed for an hour. After the resort we drove more directly back to a main road to fill the tires and then head home. Mohammad was timely, professional, and fun! Thanks for a great time!

Experience that can be cherised for a lifetime
Sep 2019
A lifetime experience roaming in the Desert, going up and down the sand hills going close by to the sea just a few steps away and riding on a motorbike which we had not planned for but would have missed if our guide had not recommended it to us. My kids and of course me and my husband thoroughly enjoyed this half day Desert Safari in full. The camel ride was another addition to my kids which I am sure they will never forget. Thank you QIA for your great suggestion.

Desert Safari
Mar 2019
Had a 3 night stop-over on our return from Europe / England. We were recommended this safari by a family friend. She was not wrong. If you are into extreme activities - do it. Our driver, Mohamed was sensational. At no time did we feel uncomfortable travelling at 100 kph plus through the sand dunes. He was always asking if we were comfortable & on our positive response he would pull another sensational stunt e.g. drive backwards down a 45 degree slope, full circles on the length of the car & much, much more. 5 hours of adrenalin rush
