EXPERIENCE OVERVIEW

Connect with the great outdoors and beautiful landscape of Montana’s Paradise Valley and Yellowstone National Park with this unique vacation adventure, perfect for families and couples alike. 

Tucked between two mountain ranges and anchored by the towns of Livingston to the north and Gardiner to the south, Paradise Valley is everything you’d expect from the name. It’s home to breathtaking vistas, natural hot springs, and miles of open land dotted with small towns, meandering streams, and lush evergreens.

It’s here, along the banks of the Yellowstone River, that you’ll find the idyllic Sage Lodge, a 4-star luxury resort set on 1,200 sprawling acres with breathtaking views of Emigrant Peak and the surrounding landscape. With miles of hiking trails, its own fishing pond, onsite dining, and a full-service spa—just 30 minutes from the entrance to Yellowstone National Park—the lodge is the perfect combination of outdoor splendor and indoor comfort, making it an excellent home base for this epic getaway. 

Though you will have time during your stay to relax and enjoy Sage Lodge’s many amenities, the real focus of this vacation is on the time you’ll spend inside Yellowstone National Park.

For this Great American Safari trip, we’ve arranged for you to have three full days exploring the remote corners of Yellowstone with one of the park's most experienced and sought-after private guides.

The days will start early, with your guide picking you up at the resort around 5am in a spacious and comfortable SUV. Each guest will have their own Swarovski binoculars and spotting scopes to track Yellowstone’s “Big Five” (wolves, bears, mountain lions, moose, and elk) across northern, western, and interior parts of the park. And, when it’s time for a break, you’ll enjoy a picnic lunch at a scenic location in the park with your guide. 

Your guide will be with you each day, ready to answer questions, teach you to track animals, and show you all the highlights and hidden gems of the park. You’ll learn more about the history and geography of Yellowstone as well as the habits of the animals who live there and will enjoy professional photography instruction so that you can perfectly capture every moment of this amazing experience. Though you can expect to be in the vehicle or out on hiking trails each day, your guide is happy to customize the excursion based on what you’re most interested in seeing and doing.

Your daily safari tour ends around 1-2pm, giving you plenty of time to explore Sage Lodge, relax with a massage treatment at the spa, soak in the resort’s hot tub, visit the sauna or steam room, or enjoy some quiet time in your room. Or, if you are inclined to get out and see more of Montana, Sage Lodge has miles of hiking trails to explore, an assortment of mountain bikes to use, and a meandering river perfect for an afternoon of fishing. 

The spacious guest rooms at Sage Lodge are designed with quiet luxury and comfort in mind and feature gas fireplaces, private balconies or patios, plush bathrobes, high-speed WiFi, and other nice touches to make it feel like home. You’ll enjoy a good night’s sleep on comfortable beds, with soft, luxurious linens, so that you wake refreshed and ready to safari again the next day. Some guest rooms also have a pull-out sofa so young families can rest comfortably in one room.

To cap off each evening, make reservations for dinner at Sage Lodge’s fine dining restaurant, The Grill, or enjoy casual food and cocktails in The Fireside Room. Then take in the amazing Montana night sky from the many outdoor gathering places and fire pits around the property.

After days of incredible adventure, and an experience of a lifetime, your Great American Safari vacation will wrap up with a relaxing 50-minute car ride along a scenic highway, back to the airport in Bozeman.

One of the largest and most popular National Parks, Yellowstone is a must-visit destination for any outdoor enthusiast, and this Great American Safari vacation is sure to be one you’ll never forget.
