This Epic Wyoming Wild West Safari Belongs On Your Bucket List
If you’ve ever dreamed of going on safari, good news! You don’t have to travel to the continent of Africa to mark that adventure off your bucket list.
EcoTour Adventures in Jackson Hole will take you on a western safari that will give you an unprecedented glimpse of Wyoming’s wildlife and ecosystem. An epic expedition with the biologists and geologists that serve as guides is certain to make a lasting impression.
EcoTours is based at 1585 Berger Lane, Jackson, Wyoming 83002
It's an ideal central location to set off for an adventure.
There are several "safaris" you can choose from including half-day, full-day, and multi-day tours, and you can go in a group or opt for a private tour. Whichever you choose, you'll travel in style in a comfortable safari vehicle that's four-wheel drive and quite capable of taking you where the wildlife is.
Geologists and biologists make up the professional team of guides that lead each expedition. They use their expertise to search out wildlife "hotspots" along lesser-traveled paths. By leading groups on observation trips and offering natural history interpretation, they fulfill their goal of helping others connect with the beautiful and fascinating natural world around us.
The Grand Teton tour is a uniquely memorable way to experience the national park. Using EcoTour's high quality binoculars and spotting scopes, you're sure to observe many of Wyoming's indigenous animal life like moose...
...majestic bald eagles...
...elk, pronghorn antelope, and mule deer, just to name a few.
The guides know just where to take you so that you can get a close-up view without disturbing the animals. Just imagine all the great pictures you'll take home as trophies!
And not all of the wildlife you'll see will be on land.
Beavers, trout, trumpeter swans, and a handful of other animals will be seen going about their business in the streams and rivers.
On the Yellowstone tour, your guide will take you through many well-known areas of the park as well as off the beaten path. Going through the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone you might be lucky enough to witness the gravity-defying antics of the mountain goats.
The National Park Service says that, although mountain goats aren't native to the Yellowstone area, they were introduced to the ecosystem in the 1940s and 1950s and abundantly populate the Absaroka and Gallatin Mountains today.
The Yellowstone safari has as many animals to observe as the Teton tour.
You might get a wave from a grizzly bear cub...
...or spot a gray wolf.
The avian ecologists at the Teton Raptor center are invaluable sources of information for the guides about the local predatory birds.
On any of the safaris you might see eagles or owls.
You could also catch a glimpse of a hawk, like this northern harrier, lunching on a freshly-caught meal.
In addition to summertime safaris, Jackson Hole Ecotours also offers half, full, and multi-day tours to experience wildlife in the winter.
