“Our guide picked us up and we saw more wildlife with him in a few hours than we had seen in 2 days on our own. He was very polite and professional. He shared a plethora of information on the area and the wildlife. Would definitely go on one of his trips again…and again! ” Tuscon, Arizona

We begin this wildlife photo tour by heading north along the western boundary of the National Elk Refuge to Grand Teton National Park. Here we will travel along the southern park roads watching for wildlife and stopping frequently for photo-ops. You will see places like Antelope flats, home to historic homesteads and free ranging herds of bison and pronghorn. We will also show you the Moose-Wilson road famous for abundant flora and fauna. Wildlife we frequently encounter on this trip includes bison, elk, deer, moose, pronghorn (aka antelope) fox, coyote, bear, bald eagle, trumpeter swans, and if we’re lucky wolves. If time allows we might choose to stop at the Jackson Visitor Center or the new Moose visitor center in Grand Teton National Park. The route varies seasonally based on group interest, road closures and wildlife migration.
