Join an experienced naturalist guide on a wildlife safari tour of Yellowstone National Park. We will focus on the geology, wildlife, and natural history of Yellowstone National Park while customizing the safari around your specific areas of interest. We will start the day by traveling north through Grand Teton National Park entering Yellowstone through the South Entrance. We then travel around the entire “lower loop” road visiting famous Yellowstone features like the Continental Divide, Old Faithful, Fountain Paint Pots, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Hayden Valley, Mud Volcano, Yellowstone Lake and much more. Wildlife will also be a priority as we travel through the park with opportunities to see moose, elk, deer, bison, pronghorn, fox, coyote, bald and golden eagles, black bears, grizzly bears and even wolves depending on season. Your knowledgeable guide will make frequent stops as opportunities for wildlife viewing present themselves. The route each day will vary depending on wildlife, group interest and road conditions.

Did you know: Yellowstone National Park is the first National Park in the world! Though there were state and local parks and Hot Springs Arkansas was protected federally, Yellowstone gets the honor since it was preserved for it’s intrinsic value and uniqueness and not as a resource to be commercialized like Hot Springs.
Yellowstone was founded by President Ulysses S. Grant on March 1 1872 when he signed the Yellowstone Park Act. Many visitors believe that President Roosevelt founded Yellowstone and is my favorite trick question!
Yellowstone National Park is larger than Delaware and Rhode Island combined at just over 2.2 million acres! Though huge it is only the 8th largest park in the United States National Park system. Wrangle St Alias is the overall largest park if you include Alaska. Death Valley National Park is the largest in the lower 48 states.
Yellowstone is considered to be a super volcano and the largest active terrestrial volcano in the world! (research varies but it’s thought there might be other larger super volcanoes under the oceans of the world)
