This fantastic three day tour takes you deep into Yellowstone National Park with plenty of time for wildlife experiences, iconic park features, endless scenery and a chance to view wild mustangs. The tour continues on to Cody, WY where we will spend time learning about the area’s western history and heritage before visiting the McCullough Peaks Management Area where wild mustangs roam.
Lamar Valley is known as the “Serengeti of North America” due to the diversity of wildlife that can be found in its natural habitat. We will have plenty of time to explore this area before heading through the Beartooth Highway to experience the “top of the world“. This road winds it way through one of the highest and most rugged landscapes in the lower 48 states.
Your exact route and itinerary will be determined by your interests, current wildlife sightings, and current weather and road conditions. Our guides are all highly experienced, with thousands of hours in the field, and will expertly tailor your safari to you and your group.

FANTASTIC experience with Yellowstone Safari Company-- such a knowledgeable guide and a joy to talk with. The incredible experience makes me want to visit Yellowstone again AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Our guide taught me to see wildlife in a whole new light! SO EXCITING to see wolves, coyotes, foxes, and more. I'd book them again in a heartbeat. Hope I get the opportunity.

We strongly recommend travel insurance in order to protect you from unforeseen travel interruptions that prevent you from joining us.
What should I bring?
We will step in and out of vehicles during our safari tours so you’ll want to wear comfortable shoes that allow you to walk on uneven surfaces, like gravel, or a boardwalk. Stepping in and out allows us to make the best use of our time in Yellowstone National Park and gives us the best wildlife viewing and photo opportunities. Your guide will have binoculars and spotting scopes for you to use, but do not forget to bring your camera! While Yellowstone has some modern facilities, we are going to be traveling through remote areas of a National Park. Please remember to being any personal items, like medication, that you may need during the day.
What should I wear?
The rocky mountain range can see drastic temperature swings during the day, even in the summer months. Please come prepared! For clothing, synthetic layers are best in our mountain environment. Base layers act as a wicking layer against the body, so we recommend anything from a light weight layer to an expedition weight layer, depending on the season. A mid layer provides warmth, so we recommend a mid weight fleece layer or softshell jacket for the upper body and a pair of travel pants or jeans for the legs. The outer layer provides protection from the elements and serves as a wind/water blocking layer. A waterproof shell for your upper body will keep you dry and therefore, warm. For the legs, we recommend either weatherproof rain or snow pants, depending on the season. You may not need an outer layer during the warm summer months with no rain forecasted, but it is still a good idea to bring it with you. Conditions can change quickly. Your footwear should be comfortable and appropriate for the season. For the summertime, walking shoes or hiking boots are a great choice. Please avoid wearing flip-flops. For winter, snow boots with wool socks will keep your feet warm. For winter, you’ll also want to bring a wool, or fleece, hat, as well as mittens/gloves to keep your hands warm. In the summertime, a light hat with a visor is all you’ll need on your head. In any season, do not forget sunscreen or sunglasses. At high altitude, the sun’s rays are intense, even in winter.
