  • Mojave Desert

Mojave Desert Tours and Trips

You've got to think on a grand scale when it comes to the Mojave Desert. This vast and stunning landscape covers over 25,000 square miles and bleeds from California into Nevada, Utah, and Arizona. That's a whole lot of desert, and a whole lot of amazing sights to see. From squatting mountains and monster sand dunes, to stand-out State Parks and staggering vistas, Mojave Desert tours are an essential part of any holiday to western USA.

Some stretches of the desert make it seem impossible that any life could survive there. The sun blazes down, sending the thermometer soaring to 120⁰C; the earth is parched and cracked, seeming to cry out for rare rainfall (it's less than 12cm per year); and tumbleweed skitters across the horizon like you're on the set of your own private Western.  

Yet in spring the land is carpeted in a blanket of jewel-like wildflowers. Joshua trees stud the slopes and valleys, stretching out their oddly-shaped arms to the sun. Bob cats, chipmunks, snakes and lizards go about their business. And ancient rock carvings send out the message that Man has lived here for 16,000 years. Don't forget that the Mojave was named after the native American tribe indigenous to the area.

Even today the desert is home to a clutch of cities and settlements - as well as a scattering ghost towns, a relic of long-gone days when silver, gold and borax was mined here. But what endures beyond anything else is the sheer beauty of the landscapes and the unique qualities of the desert. It's that feeling that you're truly in touch with the Earth and the wonder of nature. It's a feeling you can only get on Mohave desert tours.

Death Valley

Death Valley

This is without doubt a place of superlatives: one of the hottest places on Earth, and North America's lowest point at 86 metres below sea level. It's also got rocks that apparently move of their own accord, hills stained multiple colours by mineral deposits, and amazing sand dunes. Make sure you drink in the view from Dante's View, 1600 metres up in the Black Mountains.

Mojave National Preserve

At the heart of the desert is this astonishingly isolated area, a stunning mix of canyons, mountains volcanic cinder cones and the largest Joshua tree forest in the world. Two stand-out sights are the Kelso sand dunes, which cover 70 square miles and stand over 180 metres tall; and the stunning Hole in the Wall rock formation.

Ghost Towns

Throughout Mojave desert tours you'll find evidence of the days when prospectors scoured the land for gold, silver and minerals - and sometimes struck lucky! Cerro Gordo, perched in the Inyo Mountains, was once a wild silver-mining town with a population close to 5,000. Today you can tour what remains, and discover the town's history at Beaudry's General Store, now a museum.

Joshua Tree National Park

So-named for the trees that early Mormon settlers thought resembled Joshua's outstretched arms as he led his people to the Promised Land, the rocks and boulders here are a rock climber's dream. Not only are there with 8,000 climbing routes, but superb hiking through spectacular geological formations.

Coso Petroglyphs

It takes some work to get to see these early rock carvings, since they are hidden within a military base at China Lake, and entry requires prior permission. But the sight of 100,000 images of humans, animals and other objects carved into the canyon walls, some of them 16,000 years old, is nothing short of  mind-blowing.

 

You’re going to need an ESTA!
For anyone travelling to the USA, the US authorities have imposed a requirement for passengers travelling under the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP), to register for Electronic Travel Authority. Passengers who have not applied for and received travel authorisation via ESTA prior to travel could be denied boarding of the plane or be refused admission at the US entry destination. However, neither possession of a visa, nor meeting the basic requirements for travelling visa-free on the VWP, guarantees admission to the United States. As with most countries, the final determination of admissibility is made by immigration officials at the port of entry.

How do I apply for ESTA? 
Just fill in the online application form which you can find at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov. Before you travel, you will need to visit this website and fill in the form.

When is best to apply for my travel authorisation?
You will need to apply for entry via ESTA at least a minimum of 72 hours prior to travel if you intend to travel to America.

How long is the travel authorisation valid for?
Your ESTA will be valid for up to two years, or until your passport expires. It is also valid for multiple entries to America. However you must amend any necessary data, such as date of travel and your address whilst in the US.
