Here's another camera you might want to consider. The Panasonic DMC-FZ300K has a really nice zoom 25mm to 600mm. This camera has 4K video and a fully articulating LCD screen. This is a small 1/2.3 inch sensor so night time and low light photos will not work as well as a larger sensor. Great camera for the money. Less than $400 as of 1-23-2019.
NIkon Coolpix P1000 with a zoom that was un-heard of a year ago. 24 to 3000mm. The latest Nikon big zoom goes to 3000mm. We've seen this camera at work and it does a pretty fair job of resolving good images that you normally wouldn't even see. Camera has a fully articulating screen. Price may change!

Larger Mirrorless cameras are now also avialable for a greater price point.
This is the newer model of Canon's mirrorless cameras, not it's newest, but a good choice. We know people that have and use the Canon M50 and it works great and has a lot of features that the older M100 didn't have, like a viewfinder! And external mike plug and a lot more. For $500 it's hard to beat for an APS-C sensor'd camera.

Canon EOS M50 - 15-45mm Lens
Panasonic Lumis GX85
The camera comes with 2 lenses, 2 extra batteries, a charger, a memory card, a bag, small tripod and more. It also does 4K at 30 FPS! And it has a vewfinder and tilting LCD. This would make a great desert exploration camera, and small too!
