American West Photography Safaris

Yellowstone Spring Wildlife Safari

Wednesday, May 27-31 and Monday, June 1-5
5 days  $1875
 ($1500)   All 10 days $3750  ($2625)

You can choose a minimum of 5 days, up to both sets of days - 10 days for your safari.  I expect these safari dates to be full so booking early will be important.  These are magical days to be in Yellowstone.  The green grass is carpeting the mountains and valleys, the wildlife mothers are producing milk for the thousands of baby animals that have been born, and activity is at a peak for the other wildlife parents as well, those who hunt to feed their babies.  Grizzly and black bear cubs, coyotes, red fox, bison and elk calves, bighorn sheep, mule deer and pronghorn fawns, badgers, and a plethora of other baby animals are possible subjects during this brief period in spring.  Again, you can book anywhere from 5 days thru all 10 days. There is an additional 10% discount (on top of the 20% for returning clients) for doing both safaris.

I am an authorized and licensed Yellowstone National Park Tour Guide and have shot over 900 days in the park. This safari is limited to 8 photographers.

The bottom line is Yellowstone delivers the greatest wildlife photography experiences in North America.  I've shot over 900 days in the park and know just about every possible location, time, and road to be on to cross paths with these amazing animals.


We meet in Gardiner, Montana, just a few miles north of Mammoth Hot Springs, the night before the safari is to start.  I usually book a number of rooms well in advance for those coming on the safaris.  Weather is usually cool, but can change suddenly, so I suggest typical  high elevation clothing: gloves, knit hat, cold weather coat, thermal underwear, boots, etc.  If we need multiple vehicles I have radios for each vehicle.  We try and rotate everyone through the other 1-2 vehicles so everyone gets a chance to meet everyone else. I do my best to get everyone a room split if they want one.  Hotel costs are high when Yellowstone is in-season, so splitting rooms and gas greatly reduces the costs for each photographer. If you want a private room, just let me know.
