The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia occupies most of the Arabian Peninsula; it is a vast land of great cultural diversity, populated by only 34 million people from many tribes. It has a fascinating landscape; over a thousand kilometres of beautiful beaches on both the East and West coast; a lot of desert landscape including most of the Rub Al Khali (The Empty Quarter); extinct volcanoes and magnificent rock formations.
KSA opened to foreign tourists only last year (2019) and those who have already ventured to the country have told of friendly people and a land full of amazing history and natural wonders. We will take our guests off the beaten track to explore the deserts, mountains, and coasts to give them both an insight into the old world and a window on the new world of Saudi.
The current ruler of KSA is King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the son of Ibn Saud who founded the Kingdom in 1932. Now in his eighties, he delegates many of his duties to his son, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and it is he who has started to modernise this very traditional country. Foreigners of 50 countries can receive tourist e-visas, and foreigners, including women, are now allowed to drive.
