Our full day Grand Teton Wildlife Safari tour explores the wildlife, geology, and natural history of Grand Teton National Park. We start the morning by looking for wildlife on the National Elk Refuge on our way north into the park. Our first destination will be Antelope Flats and Mormon Row where we will look for the growing Bison and Pronghorn herds that call this area home for the summer. After a brief stop at the Moose visitor center we will travel north on the inner loop road to Jenny Lake. Here you can take a short walk to stretch your legs or take the boat across the lake to the base of the Tetons (additional charge). We will then head further north to take advantage of the great views from the top of Signal Mountain. After meandering back down the mountain, we will travel past Jackson Lake to the Oxbow Bend of the Snake River, keeping an eye out for wildlife and great photographs. Our day will end with a drive on the wildlife filled Moose-Wilson road. The actual route will vary each day depending on wildlife, group interest and road conditions.

From my first phone call, I knew I had made the right choice. When it came to the day of the trip, everything was orchestrated perfectly. Our guide picked us up and entertained us the whole way, taking us to the best spots - we even had a close encounter with a bear on the side of the road!

Summer in Jackson Hole runs from early May to late October.

The high elevation often creates cool mornings and evenings but hot afternoons. It is important to come prepared for a variety of conditions throughout the day as they can change quickly in the summertime.

What do others say about this tour?
Took wildlife sightseeing with Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris. This company goes beyond the normal to show you a great trip. Smart, funny, and very knowledgeable. Got to see wildlife I’ve never seen. Our guide helped with pictures which was awesome. I’ll certainly be back with my family and I know who I’ll be asking for to show them the sights. Been on many excursions in many different countries, but this sightseeing of these wild animals and mountains rank right up there on the list. THANK YOU! PERFECT TRIP!
Our guide was a wealth of information, completely accommodating to our interests and needs and extremely well-versed in the park, the animals and anything else about which we had questions. Despite the fact that we were touring on a very hot day when most of the animals were seeking a cool shady place, we saw bison, elk, pronghorn, several species of bird, including the white pelican and great blue heron (adults and a nest with three babies, no less), mule deer and a moose. We also saw some of the most beautiful spots in Grand Teton National Park, culminating with a sunset behind the majestic Grand Tetons. Little known fact: our guide is a National Geographic photographer and filmmaker. Boom!
This was an amazing tour in and around Grand Teton National Park. My wife and I booked an all day safari and had an awesome time. Our guide picked us up at our hotel and was incredibly knowledgeable of the animals and history of Grand Teton. He was fun and engaging and we saw so much wildlife and learned so much as well, thank you! So worth it!!!!
We did the private all day tour and it was awesome! Our guide knew everything about everything and was great at taking our group photos. He knew we really wanted to see a moose so he went out of his way to make an extra stop where he had heard one was sighted earlier. Highly recommend this trip and this guide!!
