We did a 90 minute tour in their safari bus and had ample opportunity to get off near the different animals for photos. We saw foxes, had a hungry linx growl at us (Youtube video - growling linx) cariboo (Reigndeer), Musk Ox, and the list goes on. Well laid out and set up to allow one to cycle through, walk through, take their safari bus or in the winter, cross country ski through. A definite highlight of my trip.

Loved being able to do the bus tour with my less mobile parents and excellent guide Stephen who went out of his way to find the animals. His knowledge of the animals was wonderful.

Our tour guide was excellent and made every effort to show us all the animals on the Preserve. We got off the tour bus often to find some of the animals hidden in the grass or trees. My husband and I took the Combo Tour that included the Preserve, City Tour and MV Schwatka. Each segment was unique and interesting.
