The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens
Living Desert Zoo and Gardens is a unique zoo and botanical garden that specializes in the deserts of the world. Giraffes, mountain lions, zebras, and cheetahs are just a few of the incredible animals that take you from Africa to North America.
Great place to visit for a few hours if you're interested in desert plants and animals! Kid and adult friendly.
Great place to see local desert animals. They put on a nice light show during the holiday season
Start your day seeing Safari animals. The cheetah run, feeding giraffes and camel ride are highlights for everyone! Fun for the whole family. Go early during warmer months.
Get up close and personal with native snakes, lizards, birds, and more. The Living Desert is also home to many exotic species like camels and ostriches. It’s a favorite with families and deeply committed to conservation work in the desert and around the world.
Great for visitors and kids alike. Educational and a little creepy if you don't like snakes or spiders, but worth seeing.
A popular family friendly destination a short drive away is the Living Desert Zoo & Gardens. We recommend visiting early in the morning when it is cooler and the animals are the most active 🦓
