What You Can Expect

Yellowstone National Park Small-Group Wildlife Safari

Yellowstone National Park

Your wildlife safari of Yellowstone begins from your Jackson or Teton hotel, where you’ll head towards the park in the early morning for the best chance of encountering wildlife. On the one-hour drive through Grand Teton National Park, your guide will peer through the morning light to search for signs of movement — which could be anything from elk simply crossing the road to a herd of bison on the move. 
When you arrive at Yellowstone National Park you’ll board an enclosed, all-terrain vehicle for a trip through the Yellowstone backcountry, where your guide will deftly and expertly navigate the rugged wilderness terrain. With the binoculars provided along with your tour, scan the plains for wolves or bears that are out for a morning stroll, or look towards the sky for eagles and hawks that silently stalk from above.
As the sun gets higher overhead you’ll drive past Yellowstone’s sights, from Old Faithful Geyser to Yellowstone Falls and shimmering Yellowstone Lake. At the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, marvel at the colorful cleft in the earth formed 600, 000 years ago, when violent eruptions created the landscape that famously stands here today. Finally, the tour eventually comes to an end with the drive back south down towards Jackson — though the views of the landscape and chance to spot wildlife continues the entire way home.

Our guide Jaclyn was professional, courteous and always mindful of our needs. She made every effort for us to see the wildlife and important sites. She went out of her way at the end of the tour to make one last attempt to see a bear and her going beyond the expected allowed us to view a grizzly. I have had no other contact with the company or other guides in the past but Jaclyn will be the one I ask for next time. She made the trip memorable.

What a great experience. Our guide, Jennifer, was very engaging and knowledgeable and I would highly recommend anyone to visit Yellowstone this way. I was more interested in the history than the wildlife but when a Bison blocks your path then this just adds to the day. Jennifer was very accomodating to our needs and we were impressed with her knowledge of the area. She went out of her way for us and nothing was too much trouble - even the hunt for the elusive Moose sighting. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Our tour was well worth every penny spent. Our guide Jacqui was energetic, knowledgable, knew the area well and was able to spot an insect in a tree from 100 yards. We saw grizzly, bison, elk, as well as boiling and mud pots. We never felt rushed or that we were stagnating in any particular area. She took the guess work and driving out of my hands and let me enjoy the beauty of Yellowstone. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who simply wants to enjoy the true beauty that Yellowstone has to offer.
