Tariq Al Yahya


Tariq Al Yahya is a founder who has worked at KAUST since 2008. Tariq has become somewhat of an 'informal tour guide' for people who want support and advise on organizing an excursion or camping trip into the heart of the desert, to get a real taste of Saudi and enjoy the warm Arabian weather. However Tariq not only advises, he happily take people out to the desert. Word of mouth means Tariq is contacted quite regularly, taking trips out in his own time and on weekends. It is not unusual for Tariq to cook up a tasty treat of chicken and rice around the camp fire, let people enjoy a ride on his quad bike, or drive them up and down the sand dunes.‚Äč
