by Jacquelyn Payne, an Adventure Enthusiast


Just beyond the glitz and glamor of the infamous Las Vegas Strip lies a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. As the sun rises above the horizon, casting a golden hue upon the vast expanse of desert sand, lies the Camel Safari Zoo. This accredited zoo by the Zoological Association of America (ZAA) promises an educational journey like no other, boasting intimate encounters with extraordinary creatures, including the iconic camel.


At Camel Safari Zoo, the excitement begins as soon as you step foot on their sprawling 176-acre property. Their educational tours offer up-close and personal interactions with beloved camels and an array of other exotic animals. Whether you're curious about the majestic nature of these desert dwellers or eager to learn about the diverse wildlife that calls the sanctuary their home, their knowledgeable guides will enlighten and inspire. As you wander through their vast expanse, keep an eye out for their pack of Rhodesian Ridgebacks, the noble guardians of the sanctuary. These magnificent South African dogs, bred for their hunting prowess and loyalty, roam freely alongside you, ensuring not only your safety but also the well-being of our exotic animal family.


Whether you're a wildlife enthusiast, an adventure seeker, or simply looking for a unique escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, Camel Safari Zoo invites you to join them on an unforgettable journey into the heart of the desert. Come experience the magic of the wild when you book a Safari Tram Tour that includes a luxury Bronco rental from Buck’n Bronco Off-Road Adventures. Pick your Bronco up from Lake Las Vegas and head out on a desert adventure 60 miles north in Mesquite, Nevada. From thrilling camel rides to educational encounters with desert wildlife, the zoo continues to inspire and delight visitors from around the world, leaving a lasting legacy of conservation and stewardship in the heart of Las Vegas.
