Full description

Explore the deserts around Doha on an exhilarating sunset safari. Ride across the dunes in a 4x4 vehicle, glide down the sand on a sandboard, take a relaxing camel ride, and admire a serene sunset.

Your tour will begin when you are picked up from your hotel or other selected location in Doha. From here you will be driven straight to the desert in your comfortable air-conditioned vehicle.

Start off with a goosebump-inducing dune bashing session, where you can marvel at the skills of your driver as he takes you up and down the dunes in an electrifying fashion. For once you can rest assured that speed doesn’t kill, but rather thrills, in the desert. After the bashing is done, it will be time for sandboarding, another popular activity in the desert. Simply strap both your feet to a board and surf along the dunes for some more thrills. Afterwards, it will be time for a complimentary camel ride, an activity not to miss, especially when in the desert. You then take a drive to the inland sea of Khor Al Adaid that borders Saudi Arabia. This is a beautiful and unique place, as the sea dovetails with the desert creating a sight that is rare to find.

Once sunset comes around, you will be able to watch in awe the vivid coloration of this landscape as it becomes enhanced by the setting sun. You can take as many photos of this amazing scenery as you want, before heading back to your hotel or selected location.

An exceptional experience if you like a bit of adventure while enjoying the beautiful dessert. We have the ATV ride which is on your own account. At first I was a bit hesitate to take the ride coz I have done it in many other countries, but truthfully it was the best that I ever had. It was a very challenging and enjoying ride. The package also inclusive a short camel ride, which basically for you to take some beautiful IG photos . The dune bashing was thrilled. I loved it. Our driver Arref definitely had very good skills, compared to other 4 wheel drives that came along together. He really gave us the best experience of how he bashing through the dessert. Besides, I wanted to thank Arref for doing nice video recording in his car and he gave us the video at the end of the trip. Very thankful. Sand boarding? Yes it was included. If you don’t frequently exercise like me, good luck!! Tried it and you will know what I meant

We had such a great time on this trip! From the minute we were picked up we all enjoyed ourselves. The vehicle was great, our guide (Babar) was very knowledgable & pointed out sights & places of interest along the way. The camel ride was fun. The desert driving and dune bashing was exhilarating, exciting & nerve racking but definitely one of the best experiences of our lives. Babar was an excellent guide & a superb driver we felt very safe in his capable hands..... even when driving down sheer drops!! We will definitely be back when more family & friends visit us in Doha. Thank you for a great day out!! Highly recommend this adventure.

It was a really great experience. I had the best hosts, they took great pics, great driving skills for the dunes bashing, they were all friendly and always made sure that you are safe, well, and having a good time. The program was exactly what’s said in the description. It’s worth the time and the price.
