The animals were otherwise occupied but that is a chance you take.
A very knowledgeable, passionate tour guide made up for it.
Well worth it just in case.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2012

The animals are active throughout the day but seem to be more active in early morning or in the evening.

Our guide took us to areas where we saw several Elk and a two Black Bears.

It was especially satisfying to finally take a photo of a Black Bear in the wild.

The French guy was great - fun and yet very informative. Just the right person as he had a flare for animals and nature. Ideal for wildlife safari's in case you do not get lucky with things to see!
