You can choose a minimum of 4 days, up to the entire 8 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 4 days thru all 8 days.
The middle day between the safaris, June 2, is included for free
with anyone doing all 8 days - though I plan on recovering that day
a bit. There is an additional 10% discount (on top of the 20% for
returning clients) for doing both safaris.
The bottom line is Yellowstone delivers the greatest wildlife
photography experiences in North America. I've shot over 800
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. Costs are
high when Yellowstone is in-season, so splitting rooms and gas
greatly reduces the costs for each photographer.
