PHOTOS: Qatar’s desert, a makeshift zoo


All photos by Ray Toh

Qatar resident Ray Toh, who has been on a nature kick and recently visited Irkaya Farm, has also just spent some time photographing wildlife in Qatar’s desert.

When asked about the experience, Toh, who went near the Saudi-Qatar border with a friend he called an expert on the local environment, told Doha News:

“It was amazing as many residents here think that Qatar is a boring place without much life. They just have to explore, as there are many hidden treasures.”

He added, “Qatar has no zoo now but Qatar is like a safari, if you explore the desert.”

His advice for would-be explorers includes devising a plan by looking at Google Maps and other online resources; packing enough food and water for the trip; and then driving to the desert.

For those who want to dive further into the experience, Toh suggests night vision glasses – his expert friend told him they can help to identify footprints of foxes, rats and birds in the desert.

Looks like fun. It would be nice to create some nature trails and best routes that amateurs like myself can follow 🙂
