The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens is now offering a Total Adventure Package (TAP) that includes several unlimited adventures throughout the zoo, saving guests both time and money. The TAP includes unlimited access to giraffe feedings, lorikeet admission and feedings, camel rides (photo not included), and carousel rides.

“The Total Adventure Pass allows for visitors to indulge in the many extra activities offered at the zoo for one flat price and it can be used as many times as they wish in one day,” said Allen Monroe, President/CEO of The Living Desert. “We've received numerous requests for this type of pass, as our guests find feeding the giraffes and riding the carousel so much fun, they want to do it over and over again without having to pay each time.”

Guests with the TAP bracelets are able to experience the free-flying, colorful spectacle of Lorikeets: Winged Wonders as many times as they wish. Not only is unlimited admission included, but unlimited nectar feedings as well. The 2,500 square foot aviary features more than 60 lorikeets and lories, flying about with numerous perches, trees and bushes. The aviary allows for the lorikeets to fly freely, while guests observe their natural behaviors and interactions, as well as have the opportunity to feed the birds from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Giraffe feedings are one of the most popular interactive activities at The Living Desert and with the TAP, guests can get up-close and personal with the herd of eight, feeding them carrots and taking selfies as many times as they wish between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

There aren’t many places in the world where one can ride a live camel and an animal-themed carousel all in one place, but visitors to The Living Desert can. Unlimited camel rides and carousel rides with the TAP bracelet are available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

TAP bracelets are available for purchase from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily and cost $15.95 for members and $17.95 for non-members, plus admission. The bracelets are valid on the day of purchase only and are non- refundable and non-transferable. Proceeds from TAP bracelet sales benefit The Living Desert’s conservation and education programs.

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