Little Big Bear Safari

Little Big Bear Safari

At Little, Big Bear Safari you can observe the magnificent black bear in its natural habitat. From the comfort of a secure tower, always accompanied by a certified guide for your security you can view bears from May to October.  We sometimes have Mama bears showing off their cute little ones, and of course there are Big Bears too! 

The observation tower is built on 50 acres of private land which borders with the government/ crown land. Over the years the Bears have gained trust and are comfortable and may come to the tower for a treat, even during the hunting season knowing they won’t be threatened.
