Wolf and Bear Safari

Wolf and Bear Safari

Cost: $1,490 per person Double Occupancy / $1925 Single Occupancy

Dates: Fall 2014: October 9th-12th (SOLD OUT), 16th-19th (SOLD OUT), 23rd-26th


Join an experienced naturalist in learning about and searching for the most charismatic predators in North America in the most famous National Park in the world, Yellowstone. This is the best place and the best time of year to see wolves and bears and we have an extremely high success rate in finding them. Fall is an ideal time to see wolves and bears since the park receives few visitors and predators are actively hunting for elk and other animals before Winter envelopes the region. We explore most regions of Yellowstone during this safari and spend two full days searching and viewing wild black bears, grizzly bears, and gray wolves along with many other aspects of Yellowstone's natural splendor.


Bighorn Sheep Safari

Bighorn Sheep Safari

Cost: $999 per person Double Occupancy / $1,323 Single Occupancy

Dates: Fall 2014: November 13th-15th, 20th-22nd, 27th-29th


Overlooked by the grandeur of the Tetons, elk, moose, eagles, mule deer and possibly even wolves and bears converge on the Gros Ventre plains. Grand Teton National Park is the winter destination for some of North-Americas largest herds and their predators. Together we delve into the delicate balance of life in this beautiful but fragile environment. In the nearby Whisky Basin Wildlife Management Area we join the largest wintering herd of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep in the world and watch violent displays of dominance during their rut. Following the footsteps of the Sheepeater Indians, we discover 4,000 year old petroglyphs detailing the pathway of their seasonal migration.
