Join us for a fun and fascinating journey into the deserts of the world & discover The Living Desert’s exquisite botanical gardens and the natural wonders of the wild animal kingdom. The 1,200-acre Living Desert provides a one-stop opportunity to explore all the great American deserts. It contains lush botanical gardens representing 10 different desert ecosystems and more than 430 desert animals, such as mountain lions, wolves, javelins, bobcats, golden eagles, cheetahs, giraffes, zebras, leopards and much more. You will also find some endangered species. Interspersed among the 10 desert habitats are specialized gardens, wildlife native to each region and displays on geology, zoology, history, anthropology, conservation and ecology — a zoo, botanical garden, park, preserve, nature center and museum, all in one. Have a picnic in the picnic area(s) or enjoy a relaxed lunch (on own) at the restaurants, and then head to Desert Hills Premium Outlets and shop till you drop at the 130 outlet stores.
