The Desert Botanical Garden was founded in 1939 and has grown to become a point of pride for the state of Arizona. The garden is located in the historic Papago Park alongside other popular attractions like the Phoenix Zoo and the Hall of Flame Fire Museum. Unlike most other botanical gardens in the country, the Phoenix museum embraces the naturally arid, desert landscape, showcasing the native cacti, succulents, and beautiful wildflowers. Sitting on around 140 acres, the garden is home to over 50,000 plants, representing over 4,300 species with around 400 of these being considered rare or endangered.
Visitors can explore a variety of different trails and plant galleries within the gardens, including areas dedicated to the Sonoran Desert’s flora. The garden also hosts a variety of exciting events and exhibitions throughout the year. From butterfly exhibits to art installations and concerts, there’s a special event sure to pique the interests of all visitors. Whether you’re a group visiting from out-of-town or Phoenix locals, you’ll surely learn a wealth of knowledge about the area’s native plants.
The botanical garden has entertaining and educational experiences to offer all types of groups. Visiting the gardens for a concert, special event, or a regular group tour is best spent with a group of friends or family. Private groups of ten or more can receive admission discounts along with guided group tour options. Take a guided tour discovering the desert’s diverse landscape or even sign up for a southwest cooking demo after an educational guided experience. Large groups can also take advantage of discounted rates for annual events like Electric Desert and Las Noches de las Luminarias.
No matter the size of your group or the occasion for visiting the botanical garden, National Charter Bus has a transportation solution for your trip. Instead of organizing a caravan with multiple cars for your group, choose a compact yet comfortable minibus to keep everyone together. We have access to a range of minibuses throughout the southwest to comfortably transport your private group to an event or tour at the Desert Botanical Garden. Choose a minibus ranging in capacity from an 18-passenger model to a 25-passenger vehicle.
Your group won’t need to worry about losing someone in busy Phoenix traffic or failing to find parking during a big event at the gardens. Every bus rented from National Charter Bus includes a professional driver who will take care of your transportation from beginning to end. If you’re a group of tourists in town for a vacation, a private charter bus rental will give your group the freedom to explore the rest of Phoenix after taking in all the gardens have to offer. Explore other local attractions like Chase Field or even plan a group day trip up to the Grand Canyon. Your Phoenix exploration opportunities are endless with National Charter Bus!
Along with conservation and research, the Desert Botanical Garden makes education for the community a large part of its mission. Local schools can participate in either self-guided field trips or guided tour options with educational programming designed for different age groups. The gardens also offer nature workshops for educators and community members to learn new skills. Students participating in guided field trips can learn about everything from plant adaptation in desert climates to understanding the relationships between people and plants.
We’ve worked with school groups across the country to find safe and suitable field trip transportation. A 56-passenger charter bus will give your students a better travel experience when compared to a traditional school bus. A charter bus will make it easier to beat the notorious Phoenix heat after a long day exploring the desert garden. The buses in our network have comfortable climate-controlled cabins and additional amenities like WiFi, televisions with DVD players, and on-board restrooms for the ultimate field trip transportation.
The Desert Botanical Garden is a popular local venue for weddings, corporate and nonprofit events, and private social gatherings. There are eight indoor and outdoor venues that offer visitors a unique backdrop for a variety of events. Hold a special business meeting in one of the garden’s conference rooms or plan a wedding service in the Webster Center surrounded by a beautiful desert landscape. Providing shuttle services for guests will help keep your wedding ceremony or business event on a smooth schedule, especially if you’ll be hosting an event during normal business hours. Choosing National Charter Bus for all of your event transportation needs will ensure everything runs seamlessly. All of your guests will arrive at the gardens with plenty of time to spare before your event begins.
