Desert Ranch Experience by Camel Safari introduces three brand-new daytime and overnight “Glamping” packages for adults and families featuring accommodations in authentic Mongolian gers, catered food and beverage, exotic desert animal encounters, educational tours and more.

Operating on 176 acres under wide-open desert skies 80 minutes north of Las Vegas, Desert Ranch Experience’s safari-inspired glamping destination provides a tranquil retreat surrounded by views of majestic desert cliffs and wildlife. Desert Ranch Experience Glamping packages are available beginning Aug. 1 and can accommodate groups of two to six.

Daytime and overnight packages at Desert Ranch Experience offer privacy for small family and friend groups and follow social distancing and health and safety protocols. Guests enjoy exclusive tours, dining accommodations and small group sizes. For more information on how Desert Ranch Experience is keeping employees and guests safe, click here.

Each Desert Ranch Experience package allows guests access to one of ten authentic Mongolian gers located at the ranch. These magnificent, brightly-colored portable shelters are comprised of lattice walls with flexible beams covered in fabric featuring detailed one-of-a-kind artwork handcrafted in Mongolia. Guests can relax and sleep on handmade beds with a sink located inside each ger. Originally created and well-suited for the traditional Mongolian nomadic lifestyle, gers are easy to assemble, disassemble and transport on Bactrian Camels. Shared bathrooms are also located within walking distance of the gers. For added comfort, each ger is climate-controlled.

Every visit to the ranch includes up-close animal encounters and educational tours with the variety of exotic animal species that call it home. The destination provides a habitat for more than 30 camels with activities including snuggling and brushing, as well as daily encounters with other exotic animals such as alpacas, a llama, armadillos, an African crested porcupine, two-toed sloth and more.

Guests will receive a private, catered lunch during the daytime package and overnight packages will receive lunch, dinner and late-night, fireside s’mores when available. All meals are made on-site in the property’s restaurant-grade kitchen or grilled al fresco.

Other activities available for guests at Desert Ranch Experience include rides in a vintage Army truck and Bactrian camel crafts. Bactrian camels have some of the finest fiber in the world, which is highly sought after to make clothing, ropes, rugs and jewelry. This seasonal activity allows guests to brush a camel and use its fiber to make a genuinely distinctive memento of their visit. This activity teaches guests how to collect, clean, card and create a keepsake out of this rare fiber. This activity is ideal for children, corporate events and bachelorette parties.
