Hold on to your sunglasses – you’re in for a bumpy ride. Today, you’ll be heading out into the desert to tackle the sand dunes. You’ll hop in a 4x4 for a rollercoaster-like ride, up and down the steep slopes. After some dune bashing, you’ll stop at Khor Al Udeid – dubbed the inland sea. It’s the natural border between Qatar and Saudi Arabia, and you can see all the way across. Qatar is also one of only two countries where sand dunes meet the ocean – the other being in Namibia. You’ll have time to snap away on the beach, which is framed by huge dunes. If luck is on your side, you might even spot a rare dugong in the see-through waters – they’re similar to manatees. Once you’ve finished marvelling at the other-worldly view, there’s a quick stop at a traditional campsite, before you head back out over the dunes.
