Yellowstone Wildlife Safari
Trip Overview
Yellowstone is without doubt one of the most diverse and unique natural habitats in the world and is the largest single intact ecosystem in the United States. Wildlife thrives across the vast woodlands, meadows and mountains ranges of what is often hailed as the American Serengeti. Bison roam across Yellowstone as they once did across the entire continent of North America as do the world’s largest population of Elk. Wolves hunt and play beneath the towering hills of Lamar Valley and Grizzly Bears wander the forests and grasslands in search of forage.

On this five-day vehicle-based Wildlife Safari you will be immersed in Yellowstone’s thriving ecosystem and have the opportunity to photograph bald eagles, osprey, moose, coyotes, marmots, pronghorn, badgers, bighorn sheep and more. Group sizes are kept intentionally small so that each photographer gets access to one on one instruction. Unlike many of our Photography Tours & Workshops this is a less intensive trip and requires little hiking as we mainly travel through Yellowstone along it’s scenic roadways as well as off the beaten path backroads.

We will photograph wildlife as well as the iconic “wonders” of Yellowstone including Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic, Hayden & Lamar Valleys as well as the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River and Lower Falls from Artists Point. Each night return to a cozy lodge and enjoy a fantastic meal while pouring over your photos from the days adventures!

Join us this year on a Yellowstone Wildlife Safari and shoot alongside a seasoned Yellowstone Photography guide while exploring the world’s first national park.

  • A Great Expereince!

    What a great experience! The trip was well-organized from start to finish. Great photography locations from deep jungle to beach to river boat to night hikes. The schedule kept us busy but never hectic, and the accommodations were super comfortable. Shout out to our guide Ben - we saw so much wildlife! I'd highly recommend a trip with them.


  • In October I traveled with BCJ to Joshua Tree Natl Park for their night sky photography trip. This was my third trip with BCJ and I just reserved another trip. I keep coming back to this company because of the great experiences I'm having. I love the small groups and excellent guides. 


  • This was my first trip with Backcountry Journeys. It was excellent, and I have since booked two more trips. The itinerary, and the guides were excellent.
