Dates & Pricing Notes

Prices are per person based on double occupancy and are given in US Dollars and Pound Sterling (GBP). (Please note that the Pound Sterling figures may fluctuate due to the current rate of exchange). Dates for 2015 & 2016 are tentative and will be allocated to guests on a first-come-first-serve basis. 2016 fees may change slightly. Guests who reserve their space prior to final pricing confirmation will receive the lowest rate within the range offered.

Group Size Limit- Approximately 14 Travelers 

A very important feature of this off-the-beaten-path guided Yellowstone safari is the limited group size, as nature expeditions are best experienced with smaller groups of travellers.

Included

Accommodations, meals from dinner on Day 1 to breakfast on final day, purified drinking water, services of  Expedition Leaders and local guides, airport transfer on Day 1, most gratuities, all permits, entrance fees and taxes.

Not Included

Travel to and from start and end point of trip, alcoholic beverages, some gratuities, passport and visa fees, optional activities, airport transfer on final day, items of a personal nature (phone calls, souvenirs, etc.), airline baggage fees, airport and departure taxes, optional travel insurance.

Physical Requirements - Easy to Moderate 

This adventure does not require a high degree of physical fitness, however, in order to get the most out of your experience, you should be able to walk at least one mile unassisted on dirt trails with potentially uneven terrain and inclines, and possibly muddy or slippery surfaces, at altitudes of up to 8,391 feet above sea level. In order to view Old Faithful, you must be able to walk 300 yards over gently sloping pavement and boardwalk.  To explore Yellowstone’s geothermal basins, you must be able to walk at least one-half to one mile over boardwalk, dirt trails & pavement. Depending on the location of wildlife, each day may bring several opportunities for short walks ranging from 300 yards to one mile, sometimes on well-maintained trails or pavement, sometimes on rough, uneven terrain with some inclines. Depending on our schedule and wildlife viewing, there may be an opportunity for active guests to hike up to five miles. Due to the altitude and terrain, hikes are considered moderate in terms of physical exertion. However, a fair amount of our wildlife viewing takes place from our specially designed vehicles chosen to enhance viewing opportunities. Our days generally start quite early, often before sunrise, when wildlife viewing is at its best and other visitors are at a minimum. We stress that all activities are optional.

Important Information About This Trip

The Expedition Leaders, who know this area intimately, are adept at getting groups to less-visited areas away from the crowds and we tend to run the trips when the parks are less crowded. But, of course, Yellowstone is a very popular destination, so be prepared for at least a fair amount of company. We operate this Yellowstone safari similarly to how we operate our African safaris: We visit wildlife locations in the early mornings, when viewing is at its best and most tourists are still asleep.

Getting There & Getting Home

Arrive in Jackson, Wyoming in time for a 6 pm orientation dinner and depart anytime on the final day. We recommend that you allow The Independent Traveller to book your international flights so that these can be coordinated with your transfers and accommodation. We will provide a competitive quotation for you.
