Desert Trips

Doha is surrounded by the desert and technically shouldn't exist. Humans tend to avoid settling in regions without fresh water and land to grow food. However, when you get past the dry and harsh nature of the desert you realise there is a beauty in the desolation. The dunes are majestic and by night the desert takes on a whole new personality. So when you are visiting the region be sure to go on a desert safari you won't be disappointed.
