The Snake River is a lifeline to the park’s bison, elk, moose, beaver, pronghorn, deer, bear and 300 different species of birds, including osprey and eagles. Your experienced guide offers in-depth information on the geology of the Grand Tetons and the habitats of the animals you may see. Although we can’t guarantee multiple animal sightings, your chances of spotting wildlife on the Snake River – with its lush willows to feed on and deep-water pools for animals to swim in – are greater here than anywhere else in the park. Operates late May – mid-Sep, subject to weather conditions.

Custer

Available on Day 13

Buffalo Safari & Chuckwagon Cookout

Custer State Park is known for its beauty and serenity, but it is also a wildlife reserve that is home to a famous herd of 1,500 free-roaming bison plus elk, mule deer, white-tailed deer, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, pronghorn antelope, mountain lions and feral burros. On this 90-minute scenic tour of the backcountry, you’ll get up close and personal with herds of buffalo and other species as your jeep driver and guide offer historical and educational information about the park and wildlife. Start with a guided off-road buffalo safari jeep tour through the park in search of pronghorns, elk, and the noble buffalo. Along the way, guides will share historical and educational facts about the park and wildlife—and help you spot the animals. Then head to the Chuck Wagon Cookout in the mountain canyon for a chuckwagon feast and live entertainment with some Western flair. You’ll also get your own souvenir cowboy hat and bandanna to play the part. Vegetarian option is also available.
Adult Price: $101

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of many of the National Parks in AZ, UT, WY, & SD. We did not realize that our 15 day trip was part of a 21 day tour coming from CA. Some travelers left in Scottsdale and/orLas Vegas. We picked up more travelers in Salt Lake City. We felt the overnights in Las Vegas & Salt Lake City were not appropriate for our National Parks Trip. We would rather add Rocky Mt National Park, the Badlands, or the Arches National Park to the itinerary. Our tour leader, Carol Kendrick, was wonderful. She made the tour fun, informative, and well organized. Our coach driver, Rayshawn Humphries, was very friendly and did a great job getting us safely to our destinations, The optional tours added so much to our overall experience. Thank you for an amazing trip!

This largely was an excellent experience. I would suggest, however, that we might have had more information regarding the accommodations selected; particularly laundry services available or not available on a tight itinerary schedule.
Vacation
We felt that the value provided for the amount spent was well worth it. On final note - We would recommend dropping the Las Vegas segment and either substituting another destination or adding another night to an existing one.
