It was a funfilled excellent trip... being a vegetarian we were worried about the food but all veg food was served with due care. Hospitality was also excellent. Even due to COID19 pandemic condition all care was taken care of by the QIT...

Private beach access with plenty of sweet water... plenty of drinking water and cold drinks.

Fantastic experience, top notch driver
We had a fantastic time, our guide Mohamed Hussein took us sand dune batching, and it was impressive (even my teenage kids were thrilled). Mohamed is by far the most engaging individual I have met, he is interested in providing the best experience. The camp and the bbq dinner were really good, the camp was clean and comfortable. I will do it again.

Good Experience
Oct 2020
We only did the night camping as we were accompanied by small children and our parents who were senior citizens. The staff at the office was very accommodative and agreed to provide us with an extra tent and vegetarian meals for the family. The staff at the camp was polite and very helpful. We also liked the food that was offered. A good speaker was available for our entertainment, so we were able to enjoy some good music.

It was a relaxed evening under stars and the soothing sound of waves.

The main concerns, however, were that our temperatures were not taken, Eitraz not checked upon arrival. The staff did not wear masks, though they did wear gloves. The AC was leaking or non-functional and the staff struggled to get it back to work, we even had to change our tent for that. Blankets and bedsheets had a strange kind of smell. Doors could not be locked from inside but the staff there fixed them quickly by putting new latches.

Also, the bathroom was not equipped with any soap or shampoo as was assured.
The washrooms are not meant only for the campers and are used even by those who were not camping there. The bath area was very sandy and waterlogged.

However, I was informed that we were the first overnight campers and things were still getting in place. Hope others will not face these issues.

An Awesome Experience with countless memories
Jan 2020 • Family
We booked overnight Desert Safari with QIA for 2nd January, we were group of 3 families with kids aging 1.5 yrs - 12 yrs with us and parents of two members.

Right from the booking of the tour till we were dropped to our homes , I can just say one word "Great".

As promised we were given experienced drivers for our pick-up/drop to and from home and desert Safari. Drivers were well mannered and soft spoken, they listened to our requests of not so harsh dune bashing and indeed followed it and gave us an experience of lifetime.

On reaching camp after dune bashing we were given a smiling welcome which assured our stay would be nice , we were provided with neatly cleaned and arranged tent like rooms which had beds and blankets to accommodate around 4 -5 adults easily. Moreover all these tents were well covered to avoid wind/sand flowing in which was our main concern before seeing it as we had small kids and parents with us.

There are many activities for free to use like , volleyball net, soccer table, TT, dart board , basket ball net and many more which kept our young monsters busy all the time. They had few paid stuff like camel riding , Shisha available as well.

The private beach was well cleaned with an awesome view points with tents put in across the sea shore with laying chairs , majlis ( Traditional Arabic sitting arrangement). We enjoyed swimming , sand games.

They have nice toilet/shower facilities and more impressive was a cleaner continually cleaning it to maintain hygiene.

There was campfire all the time and support staff was very supportive in keeping it on all the time we played around it.

On the food aspect, being vegetarians we asked for Some veg Bbq stuff as their menu had no veg stuff, to our surprise they arranged a separate pure veg section in their dining place which was quite impressive, though there was not much in Veg BBQ except grilled onions, tomotoes and chillies... ;) Could have been more better with some more options of food, my suggestion to veg audience is to carry some food stuff with you.

They had live counter providing soft drinks, water, tea , coffee though no diet soft drinks options and really the service was so awesome that they served us till the time we slept (I guess 1 AM).

Morning was way beautiful where in we witnessed beautiful sunrise over the Sea , shades of colors in the beautiful sky and really it was very rejuvenating walking along the beach.

We were served Continental breakfast like bread , butter, jams, salads, cheese, corn flakes with milk, juices and there was a live counter for egg eaters.

We left the place with very warm vibes of energy despite it being cold outside.

Will surely visit the place again soon...

Nice but a bit disappointed
Dec 2019 • Family
We liked the trip but it could have been great if.
1. The food was just a bit better with at least desserts or any sweets specially for kids.
2. On the morning breakfast at 6:30 then no time to enjoy the camp... Staff ask you to be in cars at 7:30 max... It is very frustrating, eat breakfast fast and leave please...

On the bright side. Camp is very nice, drivers are great.

Great experience overnight out of Doha
Nov 2019 • Friends
Organization overall was very good. Safe drive, good timing, smooth organization, pleasant people welcoming us.
Driving through sand dunes was excellent thanks to our excellent driver Mr. Abdullah.
The camp itself is rather well equipped & set up for a short stay. Appreciated the location, music, fire at night and atmosphere generally of the place. BBQ could have been slightly better with grilled fish... Tent and beddings even basic are ok for one night. Place, including the beach is overall kept clean.
Recommended for a first taste outside Doha in the desert

Driver is the key to this trip!
Nov 2019 • Couples
Key to this trip is whether you have a good driver to take you to and from the camping site. I was not lucky on this front and had an unpleasant journey to and from the camping site. But the staffs at the camping site were very friendly and helpful. I chose this trip since I wanted to see the stars in the desert. You cannot see the stars in the camping site because of the lights in the camping site. You have to go to the high dunes near the camping site. If your driver is friendly he will give you information and offer to take you to the dunes! I cannot reveal the name of my driver but everybody involved in this overnight camping activities including the manager may know him. Please try to avoid this driver if you want to have a pleasant journey.

Disappointed
Nov 2019 • Couples
We booked for desert overnight camping and it was pity that everything was really bad. We thought we would have an excited safari but we just rode on the sand without any excitement and it was really short and the camping was REALLY terrible as we thought we would stay in sleeping bags as they mentioned but they gave us a really dirty room with broken beds, while we were sleeping the bed is broken and we fell down in sleep. The food was really not nice and we booked this trip only for sandboarding and they had only 3 broken boards without shoes and they were all broken and it was pity that there was no hill for boarding. They showed us a small hill to board, it was approximately 3 meters and we could not be able to do sand boarding also.. I never and never suggest this company and trip to anybody.. it is waste of time and money exactly!!!!!
