What to Photograph
The Safari Park offers a wide variety of wildlife and landscape photo opportunities. There are driving trails that you will be able to see Elk, Deer, and Bison from. There also hiking trails that lead to Wolf Canyon, the Bear Den and a lake. The Eagle Aviary allows you to get close to 4 bald eagles. The wetlands area has several pelicans, turtles, frogs and other native wildlife. There is also the Crane Meadows where you will be able to see Sandhill Cranes, Trumpeter Swans and other birds.
What to bring
Any camera and lens will be fine for this trip. But for some of the areas, a DSLR with telephoto lenses would be a better choice.
Other things to consider bringing are:
DSLR or Point and Shoot Camera
Wide Angle Lens
Telephoto Lens – 200mm – 800mm or anything in between
