Are you looking to get away from urban city life in Doha? Take a trip to the North Sedra Farm, where you can spend the day feeding animals and picking fresh fruits and vegetables, enjoy kids' activities, learn about Qatar's history, and much more!
The ILoveQatar.net (ILQ) team visited North Sedra Farm and got to know the different activities available for your visit! Read on and enjoy!
The first thing you'll see is the hall of corridors with large windows overlooking different animal enclosures. The hall is decorated with vintage items, from typewriters to alarm clocks.
Each window gives visitors a full view of the resident animals of North Sedra Farm, such as the Arabian Oryx, deer, cows, donkeys, ostriches, and more. Infographics of the animals in view are displayed as well, giving guests a few fun facts about the magnificent creatures.
At the end of the Corridor of Windows is Qatar Through History museum, which gives guests a look at early Qatari life.
There are different rooms showcasing old Qatari structures and homes, mannequins in traditional clothing, and antique tools that were once used in their daily lives.
Once you step outside the museum, you'll be greeted by animals where you can purchase milk bottles and bundles of grass to feed them.
This is a wonderful activity for all ages to enjoy and get up close and personal with the creatures. You'll find farm animals like cows, goats, and chickens and even more exotic animals like llamas, zebras, and deer.
Aside from feeding the animals, there is also an area where visitors can experience camel riding and pony riding (for kids only) on a guided path.
One of the newest additions to the farm is the Cat Café and Sanctuary. It is an outdoor enclosure where guests can enjoy refreshments and sweets in the company of the resident cats.
A great experience is visiting the dwarf goat playpen, where guests can enter for free and interact with the goats.
Their enclosure is installed with elevated structures and exercise platforms where the dwarf goats love to climb and play. You can bring them food and pet them too!
Experience the unique activity of harvesting fruits and vegetables at North Sedra Farm's greenhouses. Visitors can pick strawberries, cucumbers, lettuce, bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, and tomatoes, depending on the season.
You will be given a small container and a pair of scissors, and you are free to roam and select the produce you want to harvest.
