Yellowstone National Park
Visiting the world's first national park is an amazing experience. We have lived in the Yellowstone area for over 40 years combined. We'll use our expertise to get you quality, safe views of the amazing wildlife that thrive in Yellowstone. And we love gazing into the depths of a hot spring through the eyes of a visitor who is seeing these unique geologic features for the first time. Whatever your interests, we can help you make the most of your visit.
Nova Scotia & Newfoundland
June 26-July 9, 2024
Immerse yourself in the Celtic culture of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, with some of the friendliest people on Earth. We'll see hundreds of thousands of puffins and other seabirds. A myriad of warblers present identification challenges and delight in song and appearance. At Cape St. Francis, the Humpback Whales are often so close to shore no binoculars are needed.
Lions and Leopards and (Ant) Bears, Oh My!
May 1 - May 20, 2024
Join this trip for a once-in-a-lifetime visit to one of the most beautiful countries on Earth. We'll begin the trip with a visit to a private game farm, where you'll restore your batteries by walking the roads and trails in the soft morning light among the giraffes and impala. Other highlights include birding, and wildlife viewing around Cape Town and eight ays of safari on a private reserve at Welgevonden Game Reserve and world famous Sabis Sands.
