Yellowstone Wildlife Safari
When you hear the term wildlife safari, you automatically think of leaping gazelles and lions in the wide open plains of South Africa. But what if we told that you that you don’t need to book your tickets to Africa to experience a wildlife safari? According to various sources, the term safari is defined as a “journey or a trip”. How about you take a journey to Yellowstone National Park and explore the largest concentration of wildlife in the lower 48 states?
In Yellowstone, the National Park Service reports:
• 67 different mammals
• There are possibly 500 to 600 black bears in the greater Yellowstone area
• Gray wolves were restored in 1995; more than 370 live in the greater Yellowstone ecosystem
• There are 7 species of ungulates – elk, mule deer, bison, moose, bighorn sheep, pronghorn and long-tailed deer
Many guides and outfitters in Buffalo Bill’s Cody/ Yellowstone Country offer memorable Yellowstone wildlife tours, where you’ll discover the animals of Yellowstone National Park on a guided learning adventure. For some ideas, check out the Yellowstone Safari Co. and the Flying Pig Adventure Company.
