This vast, wild land is one of the last untamed wilderness areas of the world. Known as the Serengeti of North America, the Muskwa-Kechika lies at the heart of Canada's spectacular northern Rocky Mountains...4.4 million hectares (over 17,000 sq. miles) of protected wilderness! (See maps.)
High & Wild Wilderness Safaris is a fly-in resort comprised of three well established base camps and a multitude of remote campsites scattered across 1500 square miles of wilderness. For over 40 years, the family of owner/operator Barry Tompkins has welcomed guests from around the world to this wilderness paradise. Visitors are amazed at the abundance of wildlife. Not surprising! This park boasts the highest concentration of wildlife in the Western Hemisphere.
