Meet your host, Henry

Host on Airbnb since 2011
  • Identity verified
I am an experienced off-road driver, and high desert explorer; I want to share my passion and knowledge in the local flora, fauna, breathtaking vistas, and geology. I want my guests to appreciate and discover the magic of the desert, so I take them through areas that are inaccessible to the general public. As a keen 4WD enthusiast, I take groups to explore and experience the unparalleled beauty of the Sonoran Desert.
