Lonely Planet review

This amazing zoo exhibits a variety of desert plants and animals, alongside exhibits on desert geology and Native American culture. Highlights include a walk-through wildlife hospital and an African-themed village with a fair-trade market and storytelling grove. Camel rides, a spin on the endangered species carousel, and a hop-on, hop-off shuttle cost extra. It’s educational fun and worth the 30-minute (15 mile) drive down-valley.
