Focusing on flora and fauna from desert landscapes around the world, the living desert includes replicated gardens from Africa and North America.
The Mojave Garden replicates the high desert, while 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.
The Living Desert Zoo & Gardens are in the Sonoran Desert south-east of Palm Springs, in the foothills of the Santa Rosa Mountains.
