This tour was amazing. Our guide was so informative we decided to book the next day as well. First question by Emil was “what would you like to see?” Our preference was bears and wolves, so that was Emil’s goal. He diligently found 2 wolf packs for us to watch, an alpha male on the hunt, 2 grizzly moms with... More

We had such an amazing private safari through Safari Yellowstone. Emil was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and passionate about the animals and so respectful of them. And it was great to see him get as excited about watching the Animals as we were. I am a photographer and my husband is a cinematographer. We rented an RV and traveled from... More

The guy is knowledgable and knows everything about the park. He is a great spotter of wildlife.... and that is where the buck stops. Carl is a jerk. We were on a winter photo tour - he was disrespectful to one of the clients and made such a big deal about the snow entering the vehicle. So that you understand... More

Watch for the SUVs speeding down highway 89, tailgating drivers and passing on double lines. This morning I witnessed one of this company's drivers, with the license plate SAFARI6 going about 80 miles on highway 89 in the pitch dark. Tailgated the car ahead of me, then passed on double line. For those of you who don't know, hwy 89... More

We booked two days with Carl. We've been to YNP several times, but we've never really had a good look at wolves. Our objective for going in the winter was to get a good look at a wolf. Both days started out with him contacting people to see where we might get the best view of wolves. Both days we... More

We spent the day touring with Lynn at Safari yellowstone and it was incredible. We saw a huge Grizzly in the park and 12 other grizzlies in a field nearby. We also witnessed Bison, Elk, deer, antelope, coyote, big horn sheep, mule deer, osprey and red tail hawks. It was amazing and we highly recommend their tour.

With Carl you get a mixed bag -- you certainly would be hard pressed to find someone more knowledgeable or experienced with Yellowstone. But you also get baggage. Because he knows so much, you may well be treated to endless negative comments about the Forest Service, ranchers, and the U.S. Congress (he's Canadian). And as others have noted, if you... More

This is a review I also posted for Lamar Valley. I went to Lamar Valley praying to see wolves, but with the understanding that chances were small. We were so blessed. I had hired Safari Yellowstone guide Carl to take us out for a half-day morning drive. Normally, I wouldn't pay for a guide for Yellowstone, but I wanted the... More

My wife and I spent three days with Carl. We were very happy that we chose him to help us tour Yellowstone. He we extremely knowledgable about park history and where to find wildlife.

We spent 3 long activity-filled days with Carl. We saw a black bear, wolves, elk & bison to our hearts content and even a coyote trotting by. Carl is a professional, with tremendous knowledge about the fauna and flora of Yellowstone NP. He made our daughter feel very special, and she is already asking about when we can go back.... More
