For over 40 years, The Living Desert has been engaged in the important work of preserving, conserving and interpreting the desert and all its varied plant and animal life. It is one of the most unique institutions in the U.S. and it’s located right here in Palm Desert! This wonderful oasis is a combination of zoo, endangered species conservation center, botanical gardens, natural history museum and wilderness park. Upon arrival, enjoy an included boxed lunch. Then, embark on a two-hour safari tram tour of the grounds led by nature guides. You’ll see remarkable plants, animals and natural phenomena associated with deserts and discover how The Living Desert is helping to interpret and protect them. Stops will be made at the major animal exhibits, such as giraffe, zebra, cheetah, jaguar, and many more. You will also get to walk through the Wildlife Hospital to see some of the equipment the veterinarians use to keep these animals happy and healthy. We top off the day with the “Wildlife Wonders Show” which introduces us to animals that are not on exhibit. A highlight of the day will be a private viewing of the Amur Leopard from the District Commissioner’s House which is closed to general admission guests. Enjoy time at leisure to explore exhibits on your own and see the spectacular “G-Scale” model train exhibit that includes more than 3,000 feet of track with six different loops running through historic scenes. We’ll also make a stop at Hadley’s, famous for their breads, nuts and date shakes. Suggested: walking shoes.
