How can guests see wildlife in Jackson Hole?

Since we are so close to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, there are so many opportunities to see native wildlife, including moose, bison, elk, grizzly and black bears, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, and trumpeter swans. Even driving from Jackson to Teton Village, you can see moose and elk along the road. We work with Kurt Johnson with Wild Things of Wyoming, who can lead guests to the best views and wildlife spotting areas.
