Overview

On this small-group Grand Teton wildlife safari, join a local naturalist and guide for a ride in an open-air safari vehicle on dirt roads and on paved highways within Grand Teton National Park, where you scour the landscape at dawn or dusk for wolves, moose, and elk. Look for eagles soaring overhead or deer walking through the woods, and there’s even the chance you could spot a bear roaming near the road. In addition to helping find wildlife, your guide discusses the area’s ecology, history, geology, and culture, and also stops so you can take photos of the landscape, wildlife, or terrain.
  • Wildlife tour of Grand Teton National Park from Jackson Hole
  • Enjoy a fun safari ride over rugged terrain and feel closer to the wildlife in an open-air vehicle
  • Look for moose, bison, elk, mule deer, coyotes, and eagles
  • Journey morning or evening when the animals are most active
  • Learn about the area’s geology and ecology from a naturalist guide
  • Snacks, drinks and use of binoculars included
  • Small-group tour limited to 12 people ensures a more personalized experience

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This safari uses an open-air vehicle to maximize wildlife viewing and photo ops.
From Teton Village near Jackson Hole, hop in a customized open-air vehicle (weather dependent), for a journey out on the rugged terrain of Grand Teton National Park. From the comfortable seat of your open-air vehicle, gaze up at the craggy summit of Grand Teton—the tallest mountain in the park—all the while feeling the wind in your hair as you journey out towards the woods. In the fall and winter, when the temperature drops, tours take place in a safari-style vehicle that’s enclosed for comfort and warmth, and these small group tours have only nine passengers in summer, and 10 passengers in winter.

During this Grand Teton wildlife tour, scour a part of the 310,000 acres that comprise the national park. Scan the landscape for the 60 species of mammals that live in the park, and keep an eye out overhead for over 300 species of birds. With binoculars provided by your local guide, try to spot elk, bears, bison, mule deer, moose, or wolves, and keep a lookout for ospreys, owls, hawks, and soaring bald eagles. You might even have a chance at seeing black and grizzly bears. 

Aside from the wealth of wildlife, you also experience the Snake River scenery as backed by the jagged mountains, and your guide will explain the geology and ecology before returning to Teton Village.

Note: Summer tours run from June 15 to August 31, and fall/winter tours are September 1 to June 14. Hotel pickup in the Jackson Hole area is available upon request.

Booked 1 week ahead; due to covid 19, the truck was limited to 5-6. We lucked out and had our own family tour with Jess. She began the tour by asking us what we wanted to see and tailored the tour around Moose (saw 2 sets of Mom & babies) and bear (saw 2). There were also many pronghorn and elk. Light snacks provided. The ride did get bouncy & dusty so this could limit some people from enjoying but we had a great time!
