An experience like no other

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. Groups can book a safari for up to 10 people (family/friends they are comfortable being with) for a flat rate of $120. For this private safari we ask:

  • Bison Safaris must be prebooked
  • The flat-rate fee of $120 (prepaid)
  • COVID Protocols
    • Maximum of 10 people per trip
    • Seating in every other seat
    • Everyone required to use hand sanitizer prior to boarding
    • Everyone required to wear masks while on the bus (bring your own or we have some supplied for an additional cost)
    • We sanitize the bus before/after every use with an approved spray

  • Tour length is 1 hour.
  • We encourage you to bring a camera (and to take a bison selfie!).
  • You must remain on the bus at all times.
  • The bus does not accommodate wheelchairs; passengers must be able to board the bus independently.
  • Bison Safaris are dependent on the weather and ground conditions; we may have to cancel or postpone a tour.
