Frontiers North's Big Five Safari
Experience the spectacular wildlife of Manitoba with an adventure from the dense forests of Riding Mountain National Park to the colourful tundra of Churchill. The Frontiers North Big Five Safari is a nod to the incredible array of mega-fauna that populate the forests, tundra and rivers of this beautiful province.
Our journey begins in Winnipeg, the geographic center of North America. We travel over-land to Riding Mountain National Park where the bold boreal forest, expanses of meadows and lakes, lofty heights and deep gorges of the Manitoba Escarpment are home to moose, black bears, and a captive bison herd and more.
From there our adventure takes us to Churchill where the boreal forest gives way to the rugged and barren tundra and where we will set out in search of mighty polar bear and beluga whales.
