Wildlife Etiquette

Our guides spend time teaching guests how to track and study wildlife in Yellowstone National Park without getting too close.  Visitors who are unfamiliar with wildlife often do not understand the nature of wild animals or how to give animals their space while enjoying a wildlife encounter.  Yellowstone Safari Co. guides take the time to make sure that you’re equipped with the proper knowledge to head out on your own for a safe and enjoyable wildlife adventure.
