Join Wildlife Expeditions of Teton Science, as they lead you on an exceptional safari tour and help you in locating wild animals in the wilderness in and around Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. They are Wyoming's original and oldest safari provider, offering educational tours year-round in a stunning natural environment that are fun for the entire family. Your expert nature guides know where to look for elk, moose, bison/buffalo, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, mule deer, wolves, grizzlies, black bears, hawks, eagles, ospreys, and other wild animals and will gladly help you spot them.
You will be staying in High Country Motel in Cookie City, Montana. Wildlife Expeditions' lodging is based on comfort and access to wildlife viewing areas. Because of their remote locations, the accommodations Wildlife Expeditions uses are best described as “rustic western”. They are clean, warm, safe, and secure. Please note, all hotels are “smoke-free”. In addition, smoking is not permitted in Wildlife Expeditions vehicles or at Wildlife Expeditions meals.
In the spring, bears are waking up from their long winter naps. Wolves are active around dens with their pups. Bison are venturing out with their rusty colored calves. Foxes are teaching their kits to hunt and pounce. The landscape abounds with feathered, furry and fuzzy baby animals!
Wildlife Expeditions experienced guides lead participants to the best sites for viewing these creatures. Along the way you enjoy the hesitantly budding flora of Yellowstone. The three-day trip may also include stops at iconic Old Faithful, the colorful Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and the terraces of Mammoth Hot Springs.
Wildlife Expeditions is the original and oldest safari provider in Jackson Hole. Since 1997, they have been the official training partner of Grand Teton National Park. Wildlife Expeditions are also an authorized concessionaire for Yellowstone National Park snow coach tours. Teton Science vehicles are customized with multiple roof hatches, public address systems and interactive learning materials, which allow you many options to observe wildlife on safaris.
The tour group sizes are always small, as Teton Science only sell the window seats in their vehicles. Premium spotting scopes and high-quality binoculars are provided on every safari. Specimen kits contain skulls, pelts, antlers, and hooves. Maps, snacks, coffee, and a cooler full of beverages are provided on every trip. Young naturalist packets are also provided to offer hands on activities for children.
Custom roof hatches provide superior views for photography and wildlife observation. The custom safari style vehicles offer a comfortable, spacious interior with large windows and roof hatches that allow you to rise up above the van for an unobstructed view of it all. Since Teton Science typically only sell window seats, most expeditions are limited to seven clients, thus the middle seats provide space for a backpack, camera case or extra jacket.
Wildlife Expeditions provides binoculars for every person along with multiple spotting scopes on every safari so that you can observe wildlife from a distance. Teton Science takes pride in the quality of equipment they provide, which includes: Brunton Eterna Mid-Size Binoculars, which boast a multi-step eye relief system that allows for comfortable viewing, even with eyeglasses. State-of-the-art multi-coatings give the mid-size a leg up on reflective sunlight and are responsible for sharpening edges and protecting colors.
Kowa Spotting Scopes provide the highest level of optical performance and are fully multi-coated for brighter, clearer, and sharper viewing. Bogen Manfrotto Tripods and Video Heads provide the ultimate in scope and camera support technology. They also provide an array of digital cameras and camera phone adapters.
There is variability of what animals you may see based on seasonal migrations and hibernation. You often see bison, moose, elk, mule deer, coyotes, trumpeter swans, and bald eagles throughout the year. You typically see pronghorn antelope in spring, summer, and fall, and bighorn sheep in winter and spring. Each new season brings a wide variety of mammal and birds species and on any given day you may see bison, moose, grizzly, black bear, mule deer, elk, pronghorn antelope, fox, or bighorn sheep.
Participants should arrive with packed personal items for a two nights stay. You journey north (please note for late April and early May dates you will access Yellowstone via the west entrance on day three) through dramatic Grand Teton National Park. Grand Teton National Park is home to one of the largest elk herds in North America. You will search for moose and bears along the prime riparian habitats of Jackson Hole.
Following a mid-morning brunch you head into Yellowstone National Park, the world’s first National Park. The midday hours will be sent exploring the geothermal basin near Old Faithful. After seeing the famous geyser erupt, you continue north to Mammoth Hot Springs. Your safari continues in the scenic Lamar Valley in search of bears and wolves, enjoying a light field dinner en route.
You spend the twilight hours continuing your search: a successful expedition depends almost entirely upon searching key areas during these evening hours. After dark, you drive to your accommodations in Cooke City, Montana. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included today.
You return to the Lamar Valley, called America’s Serengeti, in hopes of witnessing the morning hunt. A light field breakfast will be provided. Mid-day will provide an opportunity to explore the predators’ habitat on foot. You continue to search for bison, pronghorn, and coyotes to name a few species we might encounter.
The high elevation snow and lush valley’s create a phenomenon of high bear densities, you have the chance of encountering both grizzly and black bears. After dark, you will return to Cooke City for the night. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included today.
After swinging through Lamar Valley for one last look, you will leave this area mid-morning to enjoy a hearty lunch. Afterwards, you will tour Hayden Valley, favored habitat for grizzly bears. Your return trip may include stops at the colorful Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, crowned by a waterfall more than twice the height of Niagara Falls. You return to Jackson in the early evening where you say your goodbyes. Breakfast and lunch are included for the day.
This tour departs from Jackson, Wyoming, and travels through Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. Lodging is provided in Cooke City, Montana, and this tour ends in Jackson, Wyoming. You will visit the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem’s best wildlife viewing areas, based on special interests of the group and on recent sightings in Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks and the surrounding national forest areas.
Wildlife Expeditions biologists are knowledgeable about different animal habits, including variable seasonal and daily food resources and rest requirements and, as such, there is no set route. In Yellowstone National Park, Wildlife Expeditions also strives to see as many geological highlights as possible, which are established stops along the way.
While you may visit remote areas, you do not go off-roading as it is detrimental to wildlife habitat. All of the areas you frequent are open to the public, thus you can return to those places on your own and observe animals after your trip with Wildlife Expeditions. Please note that the South Entrance of Yellowstone is closed for the winter season until May 10. Any trips departing before this date will travel through eastern Idaho to the West Entrance in West Yellowstone, MT.
This wildlife tour includes all meals as per itinerary, with snacks and non-alcoholic beverages.
