Have you ever wanted to experience the adventure or peace of visiting Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, but didn’t know where to start or don’t have the right vehicle? Or perhaps you’ve seen the beauty that Anza-Borrego has to offer but would like to experience it with an expert who can talk to you about the plants and animals, geology and paleontology, or native American history as you walk along your favorite wash.
Desert Naturalist Tours can do this for you! Expert Naturalists from Anza-Borrego Foundation will take you into the State Park to experience new hikes, drives, or simply new perspectives. Tours can be customized by date, group size, location, and topics of interest, and we can even provide a 4 Wheel Drive vehicle needed to get out to more remote locations. Let us curate an unforgettable experience in Anza-Borrego for you and your loved ones.
These options can be mixed and matched to suit your interests and timing:
