Predators of Yellowstone
The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is like nowhere else on earth. Millions of acres of unspoiled and interconnected land allow natural systems to play out as they did thousands of years ago. Wild Things of Wyoming is offering a special opportunity to view the predators that call this region home. Our “Predators of Yellowstone” safari focuses on finding bears, wolves, and the animals they prey on, but also includes all of the other dynamic aspects of both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. This intimate small group safari is led by an experienced naturalist in a fully customized Mercedes Sprinter. Guests will have access to high end binoculars, spotting telescopes, photo accessories, and bounty of tasty snacks and drinks in-between meals. This trip is offered in May and October.
Day 1: Arrive in Jackson Hole and enjoy a welcome dinner next to our beautiful accommodations at Teton Mountain Lodge in the heart of Teton Village, WY.
Day 2: We rise early and set out in search of wildlife and scenic opportunities amidst the iconic backdrop of Grand Teton National Park. In both May and October, Grizzly Bears are often easily seen in the middle of open fields either preparing for or recovering from a long hibernation. We break for lunch and a short tour at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. The afternoon is spent exploring the remainder of Grand Teton NP before having a sunset dinner in Moose Wyoming, at the base of the magnificent Teton Range.
Day 3: We will travel from Teton Village, Wy to Cooke City, MT. This journey will take us through both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. We traverse some of the best roadside wildlife watching areas in the world. We will pass through the territories of several wolf packs and have excellent chances of seeing both Black and Grizzly Bears. To maximize our time in the field we will have delicious meals prepared in advance and eat picnic style, just as the wolves do…well almost.
Day 4: As morning light begins to creep across the landscape we return to Lamar Valley in search of wolves and bears moving about amongst the herds of bison and elk. Our custom vehicles are equipped with radios that allow us to communicate with other wildlife watchers and National Park Service staff to ensure that we are in the right place at the right time. After a morning in Yellowstone’s northern range we head south stopping to look for wildlife at view-points that most casual visitors miss. We return to our exceptional accommodations at Teton Mountain Lodge in the evening where we will share memories and photos at our farewell dinner.
Day 5: After breakfast, we will transfer to the Jackson Hole airport
