Living Desert Zoo & Gardens Tours

42 reviews
Palm Springs' Living Desert Zoo & Gardens presents animals and botanical gardens in the Sonoran Desert. Focusing on flora and fauna from desert landscapes around the world, the living desert includes replicated gardens from Africa and North America, while the Mojave Garden replicates the high desert. Bighorn sheep, lizards, mountain lions, bobcats, and amphibians are joined by exotic giraffes and meerkats in the Africa section.

Take a wander through cactus and agave gardens, wildflower and palm gardens, yucca and salvia gardens . You're bound to be inspired by the drought-tolerant planting schemes.

Practical Info

Visiting early in the day is the best time to see animals up and about, or stay on till sunset when the nocturnal animals come out to play. The Living Desert Zoo & Gardens are in the Sonoran Desert south-east of Palm Springs, in the foothills of the Santa Rosa Mountains.
