“Just wanted to say thanks for the great ‘safari’ around the Jackson Hole area. All of us had a great time and saw some animal activity that we have never seen in our 20 years of visiting Jackson Hole.” – Tom, Michigan

Begin your winter wildlife safari tour with a gourmet coffee, tea or hot chocolate from one of Jackson’s local coffee houses. Then explore the National Elk Refuge, home to thousands of wintering elk, hundreds of bison, bighorn sheep and an array of bird life. We will then head north along the western boundary of the 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, the small town of Kelly and have views of several mountain ranges that form the valley of Jackson Hole. Jackson Hole’s wintering wildlife is abundant with opportunities to see bison, elk, deer, moose, fox, coyote, bald eagle, trumpeter swans, and if we’re lucky, wolves. If time allows we might also choose to stop at the Jackson Hole 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.
