Lorikeets, Camel Rides and Total Adventure Package Return to The Living Desert in Palm Desert

The aviary is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through April 28, 2019. Aviary entrance fee is $2 members; $3 non-members and includes all-day access. Guests are invited to feed the lorikeets with cups of nectar that will be available for purchase for $3 per feeding cup.

While camels are home at The Living Desert throughout the year, three additional dromedary camels join the herd as one of the zoo’s biggest attractions. These camels have a single hump that stores food and their lips are thickened to allow for consumption of thorny plants. These legendary animals give a glimpse into the nomadic lifestyle.

Camel rides are offered daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through April 28, 2019. Riders must be at least three years old. The cost is $6 per person.

The Total Adventure Package allows guests to experience the Zoo’s main attractions for one low price including unlimited giraffe feedings, lorikeet admission and feedings, camel and carousel rides. The cost is $18 per person for members and $20 per non-member.

All proceeds from these activities support The Living Desert’s animal care, conservation, and education programs.

The Living Desert is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit LivingDesert.org or call 760-346-5694.
