Guided Grizzly Viewing Safari:

Grizzly Viewing Ranch or Camp Based

Grizzlies are the symbol of the wilderness. View these awesome animals in their natural habitat as they progress through the seasons. In the spring, concentration is in the low meadows during breeding season. Then, follow them into the sub-alpine, examine their territory marker trees, explore their dens and collect data for our Grizzly Study.

Ranch based - We leave early in the morning to catch the Grizzlies feeding on the first fresh shoots and grasses of the spring. This is the time when the bear are re-establishing territories, and it is the start of the breeding season. Sightings and photographic opportunities are available throughout the day. Collecting hair samples, documenting sightings and tracks, and studying bear habitat and a winter den are all part of the experience. Viewing is done by a combination of foot and vehicle, returning nightly to Ranch.

Camp based - Trails traveled by Grizzly bear through the mountains are marked with rub trees or territory markers. We collect the hair from these trees, and GPS their locations for subsequent mapping and analyses. The alpine meadows provide favored summer feeding ranges, and open areas allow for excellent sightings and photographic opportunities. Viewing is done by foot or by horse, returning nightly to camp(s).

Big Game Safari:
Wildlife viewing program

Wildlife viewing: Grizzly Bears, Wolf, Mountain Lion, Bighorn Sheep, Moose and Eagles in BC, Canada. Guided safari tours by horse back or 4WD. Mountain goat, moose, Mule deer, Bighorn sheep, Black bear. Each animal requires different habitats and has different habits, so we adjust ours to match. We get out early to each favorite location to view them feeding while the air currents are blowing down the mountain. We read their tracks to locate their midday bedding areas. We feel like an amateur predator with each viewing.

Peer down into the lush valley bottom at Black bears feeding on the fresh shoots of grass. In the deep forests of willow, catch a rare sight of the stately Canadian moose. Read tracks to locate the Mountain goat as they lead you to the north facing bluffs where they escape the heat of the day. Search for Bighorn sheep as they traverse the high alpine ridge tops, and watch in silent reverence as the graceful Mule deer graze favored alpine meadows. Viewing is by horse or by foot in prime locations, returning nightly to camp(s).

Single-specie Big Game Safari Camp Based
Mountain goat, moose, Mule deer, Bighorn sheep, Black bear. Slip into the wilderness, following game trials deep into the mountains. You're in Nature's Bedroom pursuing an animal with thousands of years of instinct ingrained in it to elude you. As you begin to understand how they live, you start to think like them - then you try to get one step ahead. Now you're getting in step with Nature.

You rise and sleep according to their daily habits. You heart pounds as they stalk their prey, and your breathing quickens as they court their mate. Watch as they teach and play with their young, and as they fight to defend their territory. Your eyes and ears are relentlessly alert for the threat of predators, and your mind sharpens with theirs. Viewing is by horse or by foot, at prime times and in prime locations, returning nightly to camp(s).
