Delivering Successful Safaris for more than 13 years.
Your Moose and Photo safari begins in Millinocket, heart of the Katahdin Region and home of Discovery Channels new hit show, "American Loggers". You will ride some of the very same roads the loggers use on the show, in the comfort of a van that is:
Those who do wish to smoke will have plenty of opportunity to do so outside the van on any of our frequent stops.
We are the only "Moose Safari" that GUARANTEES MOOSE SIGHTINGS OR YOUR MONEY BACK!!! How can you beat that? Check it out at Our Guarantee.
Millinocket, The Katahdin Region and Baxter State Park are best described as "MOOSE COUNTRY". One evening in June we saw 36 moose in a 4 to 5 hour tour and in 2008 Vicki broke that long standing record with 39 moose in one evening. This is above average and not to be expected but we typically see 6 to 20 moose per evening in June. I would love to say that we see moose on every trip out but that is not always the case. We do have years when we have a few trips when we cannot seem to find moose but those trips are few otherwise we would not be able to offer the "Money Back Guarantee". No other Moose Safari in Maine offers a money back guarantee.
Because we know where the moose are on a daily basis! We will save you valuable vacation time and wear and tear on your vehicle over some of Katahdin's toughest terrain. You could spend days trying to find moose on your own, let us take all the guess work out of it and you'll be photographing moose before you know it. As we are riding you will learn many moose, deer and regional facts that you would miss on your own.
The Katahdin Area probably has more moose per square mile than any other place in Maine. Some of our safari guests say," they have been coming to Maine for years and never seen a moose". Our reply to that is, "they have not been going with us."
Usually we can safely get you, "up close and personal" with moose, sometimes within 35 feet.
What makes this area different from the rest of Maine?
Unlike Coastal and southern Maine the Katahdin
Region has just the right type of:
This makes our area a natural haven for moose and deer to flourish. The Katahdin Area has vast forests that extent from Millinocket to Canada with little between but woodlands and wildlife.
Baxter State Park also provides over 200,000 acres of land where wildlife are not hunted, therefore wildlife of all kinds thrive here.
Please keep in mind that our tours are not
limited to any one area. To be sure that your safari will give you
everything we have to offer we may choose to take you to:
Depending on weather conditions and where
we have been spotting moose recently. Another factor that determines where
we take you is:
These safaris are designed with you in mind so no matter what your physical condition is, if your are breathing this tour is for you, even in stormy weather. Read on to learn more about one such trip in the 1999 season. We even offer overnight accommodation with an unbelievable price so you won't have to drive after the evening safari is over. Just click the "overnight accommodations" below or go to overnight accommodations and see how the whole house can be yours at "one room hotel rates".
With a van full of people, excited and ready
to see moose we headed to Baxter State Park. After entering the Park the
sky turned dark and threatening. I suggested to the guests that we change
plans and head in a different direction, even though that meant
we had wasted valuable daylight already. I didn't want them to get wet
and be uncomfortable for the rest of the evening. If we continued where
we were going, a short walk was a must to see moose and was sure to dampen
our clothes not to mention our spirits.
Some in the group reluctantly agreed to change plans but reinforced what I already knew; "they wanted to see moose!"
We turned around and headed to another area only to find the sky had already opened up and buckets of rain was coming down, (without the buckets).
To make a long story short, we saw a total of 17 moose that evening and didn't get wet doing it. That is what is so great about some of our spots.
If you do have a physical condition or small children, that might make walking a problem, please let us know when you place your reservations.
Baxter Park is just a few short miles down the road so let us begin there.
Before making any plans please check out our Overnight Accommodations because we know that you will be comfortable and get a good night sleep in our "Home away from Home" at hotel prices.
