Overview
The beauty of Qatar’s desert and Inland Sea are best experienced without crowds. This private tour from Doha visits both locations with just you and a guide. Plus, the tour only takes half a day, so it's ideal for time-pressed visitors. Take a dune bash, admire the turquoise Khor Al Adaid sea, and stand where dunes run into the ocean. A choice of pickup points and times means extra flexibility.
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.

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
