Safari Information Reservations Guide: Brent Paull
Nature safaris in Yosemite are a combination of awesome landscape opportunities and occasional wildlife. While the safaris go during different seasons, each season offers something unique - winter and snow, autumn colors, spring green - and roaring waterfalls.  The massive granite monoliths provide backdrops for Yosemite Valley and the Merced River, one of the top photography destinations in all the world. 

Over the years I've photographed bobcats, black bears, mule deer bucks, and an assortment of birds - so depending on the season, wildlife opportunities will also be available.

We can meet at my home if you are coming from the south, or in Oakhurst near the south entrance to Yosemite.  We stop for lunch in the park around 11am, and usually finish up at the end of the day.  The fall and winter safaris will be cool to very cold, so dress accordingly - boots, gloves, knit hat, and winter overcoat.

The deposit is 50% via check, Paypal, or credit card, and the balance is due halfway between the deposit date and the safari date unless you are booking within 3 months, then full payment is due.  Check the main safari page for other information.  Spouses can ride along at no charge, but you must have your own vehicle.  Link 

This safari is 1 day long.

I've spent my 38-year wildlife photography career shooting in the American West.  The first 23 years shooting out of Utah, the past 15 years out of California.  With 1500 published photo credits, dozens of magazine covers and article, and a lifetime wandering the roads of the west, the photo safaris that I lead are all to the best locations, at the best times, during peak wildlife activity periods.  What a rush it has been.
Difficulty Level Dates

Easy  -  Some walking, no hiking. January 10     May 17     October 19    $250
Since we come in and leave from the Hwy 41 entrance, depending on the season we will shoot Mariposa Grove of Sequoia trees either coming in or leaving. Also, we will look for Great Gray Owls around Wawona in the autumn, and hit other peak spots during the seasons. The Winter Safari can be very cold, while the spring and autumn safaris are usually mild and comfortable. The safari dates keep us out of the park on busy weekends, but are still timed to take advantage of both seasonal landscape and wildlife opportunities.
Bonus Safari Discount Participants - maximum of 4 photographers.
