Venture inside FortWhyte Alive’s bison prairie for an up-close encounter you’ve got to see to believe.

See North America’s largest land mammal from just meters away, interacting in their natural habitat. Go on an adventure into our prairie past this summer, and leave knowing more about how bison have shaped Canada’s history.

Our bison safaris are a summer favourite for families, photographers, and out-of-town visitors looking for an epic Manitoba experience.

Due to COVID, our bison safaris look a little different this year. For the safety of all of our visitors, our safaris are available only for a group booking this summer

We provide custom Safari bookings upon request. If you are interested in another date or time contact our Group Bookings team at 204-989-8355 ext 204 or bookings@fortwhyte.org.
