Desert Caravan Challenge 2015


On Sports Day weekend, we're inviting you to get outdoors and get active by joining the Caravan Challenge! 

We've teamed up with Qatar Tourism Authority to bring you the ultimate Qatari desert adventure.

On February 6th and 7th, a caravan of Qatar's adventurers will embark on a challenging endurance test: the Desert Caravan Challenge.

Participants will each ride a camel for the 12km long challenge that starts and ends at Zikreet village and takes in the impressive Brouq Nature Reserve. There'll be rest stops near Serra's East-West/West-East sculpture, and at Ras Abrouq and Zikreet fort too. Find out more.

If you've missed the chance to register to take part, you can still join in this weekend. Make your way down to Zikreet and catch the caravan as they trek the landscape. You can follow them on foot, by car, or meet them at East-West/West-East.

Don't forget your cameras!
