We get up well before dawn to catch a glimpse of the wolves and to see if they got a kill to feed the pack. Your breath fills the quiet darkness of the early morning as we trek through the new fallen snow to find a lookout. We bring steaming hot chocolate in a thermos to warm up from the inside out.
We are the only company in the area to offer this exciting wolf safari, and we are very pleased to be able to offer you this unique opportunity. We take guests up into the wolf areas from October through June, when the wolves are most likely to be visible.
The wolves were re-introduced into the (three million acre) regions of Yellowstone Park in 1995, and there has been tremendous controversy over their arrival ever since. Because wolves can be elusive, as is true with any wild carnivore, we take guests up into the area for a minimum of five days. In the spring we watch for grizzly and black bears as well as wolves. Clients and I witnessed a fight between a grizzly and twenty eight wolves which was one of the most exciting things that I have ever seen, even in Africa or India. The following morning, wolves attacked a bison who managed to toss a wolf into the air with its horns. The bison won that battle!
We do our homework on the wolves by attending classes given by wolf biologists, and have a large selection of books and other information for clients to study before we go into the field for actual wolf watching.
We drive 200 miles into wolf country for the best viewing opportunities. We may travel to elevations of up to 11,000 feet, so if you have any health problems, please check with your doctor before looking into this trip.
Weather permitting, a trip over the Beartooth Pass, or to the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, Wyoming can be arranged.
