A place of pristine beauty, incredible wildlife and awe-inspiring landscapes. Yellowstone; one of the world’s oldest national parks and certainly one of the most beautiful wildlife reserves in all of the Americas. A park shaped by its ancient geysers, breathtaking mountains and glorious canyons.
Yellowstone is abundant with wildlife, including bears, wolves, elk, moose, mountain lions and its most famous residents… its legendary herds of bison (just to name a few). However, what makes Yellowstone just that much more special is that these incredible creatures are surrounded by some of the most beautiful landscapes you will see, places like Lamar Valley, Yellowstone Lake, Grand Prismatic Spring, Hayden Valley, Mammoth Hot Springs, Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, and the world famous Old Faithful Geyser. This combination of incredible amazing wildlife and spectacular landscapes makes Yellowstone the pinnacle of the North American Safari.
Yellowstone is a park that is as beautiful as it is ancient, as pristine as it is breathtaking, and if you are a wildlife photographer, or perhaps a just a nature lover, or even someone wanting to simply get away from the daily hustle and bustle of the modern world and reconnect with nature, then Yellowstone is a must see; a place that will reignite your connection and love for our incredible planet.
Due to the size of Yellowstone, we will be staying at 2 different lodging accommodations for this trip. The first lodging accommodation will be centrally located within Yellowstone where we will stay for 3 nights; this location allows us to focus on the various features in Yellowstone’s central and southern areas of the park (geysers, waterfalls, beautiful landscapes & wildlife). We will then spend our last 2 nights at a beautiful boutique hotel in Gardiner, Montana which is located at the northern entrance of Yellowstone. The Northern areas of Yellowstone are not only very scenic, but also home to Lamar Valley where there is excellent wildlife viewing.
Upon arrival in Bozeman, Montana you will be met by your Enzuri Safaris Photographer & Guide. From Bozeman, our adventure begins, as we head to Yellowstone National Park (1.5 hour drive). We will stop in Mammoth Hot Springs for lunch and then spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the Northern & Central areas of Yellowstone in search of wildlife and landscape photography opportunities.
Day 2, 3, 4 & 5
We will start each day with at sunrise; getting an early start each day offers the best chances of seeing wildlife and maximizes our photography time during the beautiful golden hours of the morning. Each day we will focus on a different section of Yellowstone photographing the wildlife and exploring the geysers, waterfalls, landscapes.

Located in the heart of downtown Gardiner at the North Entrance to Yellowstone National Park. The North Entrance is the world’s first entrance to a National Park and Yellowstone’s only year-round entrance. Throughout the late 19th century and into the early 1900s, Yellowstone was referred to as Wonderland, and it’s easy to understand why. With abundant and diverse wildlife, more thermal features than anywhere else in the world combined, hundreds of waterfalls, and breathtaking landscapes – it is still a vast Wonderland today.
All of the suites are private, come with wood floors, air conditioning, a full kitchen, cable tv, free wifi, eco-friendly and luxurious amenities and have a unique Yellowstone theme complete with photos from local artists. The beds are made locally out of reclaimed wood from Yellowstone or the surrounding forests.
