See moose, black bear and elk in Riding Mountain National Park, and then search for polar bears in their natural habitat on the rugged tundra of Churchill on this unique safari which showcases the prolific wildlife of Manitoba.

Your journey begins in Winnipeg, with a drive to Riding Mountain National Park, a rich wilderness in the midst of the prairieland that covers more than 3,000 square kilometres of rolling hills and valleys. Amidst its boreal forests, vast expanses of meadows, lakes and deep gorges, moose, black bear and a (captive) herd of bison live together with elk, wolf and countless bird species.

After the serene landscape of these southern plains, you head north to Churchill, where the forests give way to rugged and barren tundra. Here you search for polar bears and the 3,000 or so beluga whales that spend summer in the Churchill River. This one-off itinerary takes advantage of the long hours of summer daylight, when the short flowering season of the tundra is at its colourful best.
