Discover Cynthia’s

Cynthia’s offers desert safaris and lodging options in a remote part of the California Mojave Desert near Death Valley National Park. Yet it is just 90 minutes from Las Vegas and 3 hours from downtown Los Angeles. It is without cell phone connection, high speed internet, crime, stress, social pressures. It has dark night skies and perfect quiet. It is a place where we make room for wildlife, walk on the Old Spanish Trail, follow ancient Indian footpaths, hike to a waterfall on a rare protected desert river.

If you think that you want to immerse yourself in such a place and see what happens, I will do my best to share all the secrets and special places that I have discovered in my time here.
