“Up close and personal”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

It was a cloudy day, but a nice day for a walk. We saw moose, bison, elk, dall sheep, Lynx, and fox. If i had it to do over, I'd probably take the bus, because there's a lot of ground to cover.

“Very nice wildlife preserve”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

Animals seems to be very well looked after. They have indeed a vast landscape for them to run around. Sometime this makes it difficult to see the animal. We bought the family pass, so we can do both the walking tour on our own and we went on the bus tour the next day. It was very relaxing to the walk if you have time. Bus tours was more informative and the guide helps us find the animals where we could not see them the first time.
We tried to use our long lens to take the picture but it is very difficult to take good one behind the fence and on the viewing platform.
