Guided Scenic Tours

Explore the pristine wilderness of The Wilderness Rider Buffalo Ranch in a tour customized for you.

Many features can be seen from the comfort of our 6 seat Yamaha Viking Side x Side.  These tours are ideal for most ages and mobility levels. They can be tailored for more adventurous travelers and include short hikes to special features or can be entirely motorized for those with mobility issues who still want to experience the magic of being deep in the Ozark Wilderness.

You can also Rent a Side X Side if you would prefer to drive yourself. Rent a 6 Seat Side X Side Here.

While the tour vehicle can hold up to 6 passengers if you have less than 6 you will still have a private tour. The extra spaces will not be filled with additional guests. This will be a private experience for your group only.

Due to Covid – one person in your party will drive a side by side while following our guide in a separate side by side. The guide will provide instruction and lead by example as you navigate the Wilderness Trails.
