Welcome to Oryx Farm and Equestrian Club

Oryx Farm and Equestrian Club

The Oryx Farm and Equestrian Club is a protected breeding centre for the endangered Oryx. Situated 10 miles (16km) from Doha in Al Shahaniya, the centre offers visitors the chance to see relatively large herds of the protected Arabian Oryx. The farms warders are friendly and offer informative opinions about the breeding project and the protection of Qatar's national animal. The easiest way to visit the farm is through a registered tour provider as approval must be granted before arrival at the farm.
