“There are countless reasons Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris made my experience in Wyoming a memorable one. I would definitely recommend Jason and his crew for an unparalleled Safari experience…you won’t be sorry!” -Brooke, D.C.

Start the first half of your day with a wildlife photo tour throughout Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park. 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. Then get geared up at the Jackson Hole Whitewater boathouse for the river portion of your day. Choose between a scenic float on the Wilson to South Park stretch of the Snake River (13 miles) or run the famous whitewater of the Snake River Canyon (8 miles).

Did you know:

The Snake River originates just outside of Yellowstone, flows into the park where it picks up water from several tributaries, then flows south through Jackson Hole on it’s way to the confluence with the Columbia River. The total length of the river is over 1,000 miles with different exact figures putting it around 1050-1078 miles long!

The Snake River is named for the ‘Snake’ people who were actually the Shoshone. The Shoshone were the tribe of native Americans that helped the Lewis and Clark Expedition make it over the continental divide. Sacagawea was a famous Shoshone guide on the expedition. Without their help the Lewis and Clark Expedition would have been stopped by the high mountains of the Bitterroot Range in Idaho!

The Snake River flows through Jackson Hole which is the name for the entire valley east of the Tetons. Mountain men used to refer to large mountain valleys as ‘holes’ and would name them after each other. Jackson Hole was named after Davey Jackson, a trapper and early white explorer of the area. The valley to the west was called Pierre’s Hole but has since been renamed to Teton Valley.
