Khor al Adaid, the inland sea of Dakar
Contenu de la page
Khor al Adaid is located at the southern end of the Qatar. Khor al Adaid, also known as inland seaThis is probably the most beautiful place in Qatar.
A desert of sand and dunes stretches to the horizon at the southern tip of Qatar, just a few kilometres from its border withSaudi Arabia. These dunes are unique because they have a special feature... These dunes are so deep that the sea can sink for kilometres. This is the source of Qatar's inland sea (Khor al Adaid).
It is a truly magical landscape. This landscape is even more spectacular than the sand dunes of the coast when it touches the desert.
I find the unique landscapes of Qatar's inland sea to be must-haves. It would be a shame not to visit Khor al Adaid during your visit to Qatar.
Some tips for visiting Khor al Adaid
The dress code for a safari in the desert varies according to the season and the day. It is important to cover up at least the head. Respect the premises, do not wear miniskirts or shorts. Take a garment warm to cover yourself in case of wind or cool nights.
In December, the weather was about 24 degrees CelsiusBut the wind was strong. You can also do this safari in the morning. Depending on the location of your accommodation, the return to the hotel may be around 7 p.m..
How to get to Khor al Adaid?
The Last 20 kilometres to Khor al Adaid pass through sand dunes.
Driving in the sand requires a lot of experience. It's not enough to let the air out of your tyres and go on an adventure. It is easy to get lost, to get stuck in the sand, or even worse.
If you have no experience of driving in the dunes, do not venture into the desert of Qatarwhich leads to the inland ocean. It's not just about driving on a sandy track. It is also about crossing dunes.
You can also get stuck in the sand in some parts of the Inland Sea.
It is strongly recommended to book a excursion to a agency which will provide you with a 4×4 vehicle and a guide. You can book your excursion by 4×4 to Khor al Adaid online. Even if you only plan to stay a few days in Qatar, it is recommended. You have 2 possibilities to get to Khor al Adaid:
- Take a 4×4 vehicle from Doha to Khor al Adaid
- Take a 4×4 vehicle from Doha to Khor al Adaid in camel back
If you choose the second option, be aware that the camel ride takes place at the edge of the desert and not on its edge. As I mentioned, access to the inland sea is difficult and there is very little at the edge of Khor al Adaid. The camp where the camels live is therefore located on the edge of the desert. The camel ride takes place in the sand dunes, but not at the water's edge.
