Jackson, Wyoming’s Four Seasons Resort has an in-house biologist, Tenley Thompson, and naturalist, Andy Palzkill, who know where to find the most awe-inspiring wildlife in Yellowstone National Park and will lead you right to them. A perfect excursion for families, Thompson and Palzill’s half- to one-day tour in search of bighorn sheep includes their collective encyclopedic knowledge and is a subtle way to get kids psyched about the wild animals’ anatomy and the area’s ecology. And they do it style: The “safari” includes use of a Mercedes SUV, Swarovski spotting scopes, a National Park pass, and a gourmet picnic. Customizable through the resort’s concierge; must be booked 30 days in advance; from $300 per person.
