The Living Desert in Palm Desert
The Living Desert is a unique zoo in Palm Desert. Their focus is on displaying the animals in natural surroundings. The collection of animals is quite good, and if you want to get up close and personal, you can feed the giraffes or ride a camel. They also have a learning center, and windows on the animal care facilities so you can see behind the scenes.
Recommendation: If you are visiting in the Summer, plan to go as early as possible since the animals will only be active in the mornings when it’s cooler. If you are a fan of desert plants, check out their nursery which is one of the best in the Coachella Valley.
