Zion National Park contains some of Earth’s most spectacular scenery, yet the vast majority of its 3 million annual visitors will never experience Zion beyond a few feet of the pavement. Those who do know that nature’s best kept secrets are reserved for those who venture beyond the well-worn trail.
Our tours makes it easy to experience many of southern Utah’s hidden treasures. We take the road less traveled to show you places that most visitors see only in photographs, including stunning panoramas and breathtaking overlooks that have remained unchanged for a million years. See thousand year old Native American rock art, an authentic ghost town that became a Hollywood favorite, and wildlife that doesn’t behave like it lives in a zoo. Choose from our safari, or take a Private *Jeep Tour to wherever you want to go. You can even combine your private tour with a Zion 360 Tour.
The Mesa Vista safari departs from Majestic View Lodge in Springdale. The 3-hour “Mesa Vista” Safari follows North Creek toward the Kolob Terrace, then explores Smith Mesa. This area provides spectacular panoramas which stretch from West Temple to the Kolob Fingers at the northern end of the park.
Safari Tours are available 7 days per week during peak tourist season. All trips depart from the Majestic View Lodge in Springdale. Safari vehicles hold up to 12 passengers. Morning tours last approximately 2 hours and visit the “Outback” area (see map above) on the south side of the Virgin River. Afternoon tours last 3 hours and visit the “Mesa Vista” area north of Virgin, Utah. Trips may be altered at the driver’s discretion based on potential road hazards and group needs. Private *Jeep Tours are available 7 days per week throughout the entire year. These trips are much more flexible than our safaris, and can be customized to your wishes. The vehicles are suitable for more aggressive hill climbing, and the seating arrangement tends to be more conducive to conversation with the driver. These tours provide a more personal experience, and can reach more remote locations that few people know about – and even fewer can access!
