A few years ago I was lucky enough to go on a photography trip with Roy Toft Photo Safaris. I dragged my poor Mom (Karen) along with me and we truly had the trip of a lifetime!
We started our adventure in Anchorage. It was a beautiful city and perfect for a Moose tour! We got so close to the Moose. It was a bit scary but totally worth it!
After a quick layover we were off to Brooks Camp in Katmai National Park. We had never been on a float plane before and the experience was incredible. The second we landed at Brooks Camp we had Brown Bear right by our plane. I was excited but was also wondering what I had gotten myself and my Mom into!
We had an amazing experience at Brooks Camp! It is an incredible destination for those interested in viewing Brown Bear in their natural habitat. We camped in tents, which overlooked Naknek Lake and were surrounded by an electric fence for safety. What I loved was that at Brooks, bears had the right of way and were respected at all times. We cannot wait to go back soon!
