Overnight Adventures at The Living Desert
First Friday Night of each month October-June | 6:30pm – 9:00am
Grab your backpacks, roll up your sleeping bags, and come join the Starry Safari, a nighttime sleepover experience for the whole family. Stay past closing time and encounter the sights and sounds of the desert at night.
Each Starry Safari overnight will feature up-close animal presentations and a nighttime guided walk through the park. You can partake of tall tales told ’round the campfire while you enjoy s’mores that you roast yourself.
In the morning, enjoy a continental breakfast and can choose to stay on for further exploration of The Living Desert – your next day admission is included in the Starry Safari package.
