What you'll do

Take in stunning views of the High Desert of the Mojave, accompanied by goats.

We’ll meet our 15 friendly Nubian goats in their pens. They’ll wait for us to open their gate, and then these loving animals will show us the way. We’ll follow the herd at an easy pace into desert washes and onto boulders, where we’ll find beautiful spots to sit and chat—or simply gaze into the silence of the landscape, the gaping sky, and the goats enjoying themselves.

We’ll walk about three miles and return with the goats after the sunset.
Other things to note

Meet your host, Yogi Goats

Host on Airbnb since 2017
  • 486 Reviews
  • Identity verified
I moved to the US from France over 20 years ago to pursue work as a yoga instructor and massage therapist. For the past 10 years, I’ve lived on a beautiful farm at a 4,500-foot elevation. Here, I take care of sweet Nubian goats all surrounded by granite boulders, Joshua trees, and piñon pines.
I care for this land passionately, and I love sharing the beauty of the high desert with friends and visiting guests.

Emmanuel and his goats are something unique. My fiancé and I were looking for a magical experience, something out of the ordinary and we found it here. The drive through the desert is breathtaking. Connecting with the goats is an incredible experience and the beautiful sights along the hike are the big reward at the end. We recommend and hope to come back soon.

This review is for my husband and 7 year-old son who went. Not only did they text me along the way of the hike saying how epic it was, they came back raving as well. They felt like they were in a different country. The hike was beautiful, mild impact and an overall dreamy experience.

This is such a magical experience. It was the second time that I have been out and definitely not the last. Emmanuel is an incredible host and the goats are friendly and super calm. There land is absolutely gorgeous and there is a serene peacefulness to the property that is unparalleled. If I could give this experience 100 stars I would. The hike can be challenging for some although, Emmanuel is good about observing the physical capabilities of the guests.
