Bison Safaris

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

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.

Tours are available Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays all summer long.

Book your safari


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.

Bison Safaris must be pre-booked.

COVID Protocols:
Safaris will follow current Manitoba public health regulations for indoor gatherings. Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing procedures meet or exceed current public health guidelines. Masks are required on the bus; bring your own, or plan to purchase one for a small additional fee.

Good to know

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.
