Buffalo Safari Jeep Tour

Young boy up close to buffalo.

Go off the beaten track

Our buffalo safari tour will take you where only we can go: off-road. Trek through the park in an open-air jeep in search of pronghorns, elk, and the noble buffalo. Along the way, our guides will share historical and educational facts about the park and wildlife—and help you spot the critters.

Tours depart daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The ride takes about 1 ½ to 2 hours. 

Check-in at the front desk of Creekside Lodge, which is on the grounds of the State Game Lodge Resort.
