Carry more bottles of water- more and more!

Water becomes a life-saving fluid when you are desert driving in Qatar. Carry more and more water cans with you (and energy drinks and fresh juices if possible) to stay hydrated.

Stay filled!

It’ll be a horrible experience if you happen to get stuck in the middle of an endless desert without fuel in your vehicle. Check if you have enough gas before you go, and also have a reserve source of fuel.

Have a list of emergency numbers!

Most 5-star hotels in Doha the likes of Souq Al Wakra Hotel Qatar by Tivoli advise their guests to keep a list of contacts to call during an emergency. So, make sure you take this list when you come for desert driving too.

Check the tires before you go!

Your car tires should be healthy, and they can’t make any trouble during the ride. So, check the status before you start the engine, and always have a spare tire with you.
