The desert ecosystem can be a subtle one, with what seems to be hard scrabble and cacti in fact being a rich habitat filled with unique plants and animals supremely adapted to the harsh environment. Expert naturalists from the Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association help you unlock the desert’s mysteries on guided walks and talks. One favorite: a hike in Borrego Palm Canyon to spot desert bighorn sheep. On full-moon nights, take a Hike to the Moon walk, including telescopes for close-ups of our brilliant celestial neighbor as it rises into the night sky.

A guided tour in an off-road Jeep or Hummer is a great way to explore, and to learn about unique plants and wildlife. California Overland offers a variety of tours, as well as special camping overnights, including stargazing by telescope, setting up and breaking down camp, and gourmet meals.
