We came upon Leo’s by chance and boy are we ever glad! We are already planning our trip back for winter! Leo is a wonderful guide! He knows his stuff! And what’s most beautiful is he loves his work and I promise you will too. Buffalo/Bison have just jumped way up my favourite animal list! Loved him his music his tour his farm and his tractor and of course his buffalo !
