ORYX is proud to announce an initiative in celebration of our 10th year, one that will provide participants a chance to photograph a number of big cats while creating lifelong memories and simultaneously enjoying significant monetary savings. The big cats are unquestionably some of the most sought-after wildlife photographic subjects on the planet, and as we look back at a decade of providing our guests with world-class photographic experiences, it is crystal clear that this grouping of felines feature prominently throughout our existence as a company.

With this in mind, we are launching the Big Cats of the World Photo Club, which will give you the chance to photograph up to a maximum of 7 of these alluring mammals! We have worked on 2 options, both starting on 1st January 2021: our full (5 year) program will give you the chance to benefit from tiered discounts that get better year on year, with the 5th year providing a tour discounted by 15% and an overall cumulative saving of 50%! Our shorter, 3 year plan operates in the same fashion and provide a cumulative total of 21.5% in savings.

So – what are the big cats? These are broadly defined at the 10 largest extant species of wild cats, with our program currently covering 7 members namely Tiger, Lion, Jaguar, Leopard, Puma, Cheetah and Snow Leopard.

We hope to see you join ORYX’s Big Cats of the World Photo Club so that you too, can delve into the realm of the big cats!

Here’s how it works:

Fill out the form on this page at no cost or obligation. (Note that registration closes on 31 December 2020).

Sign up for one of our Big Cat Photo Tours in 2021 and you qualify for a 5% discount off that tour (existing bookings are not eligible).

Thereafter you have to join another Big Cat Photo Tour each year to receive a stacking discount on each new tour.

  • Year 1 – 5%
  • Year 2 – 7.5%
  • Year 3 – 9%
  • Year 4 – 13.5%
  • Year 5 – 15%

Totals 50% over time

  • there is no charge to register and no obligation to do all 5 tours for those doing the 5 year program, nor is there an obligation to do all 3 tours for those doing the 3 year program – opt out at any time.
  • existing bookings are not eligible for the Big Cats Photo Club.
  • registration for the Big Cats Photo Club closes on 31 December 2020.
  • each of the tours must be to a different destination as offered within the Big Cats Photo Club program.
  • those opting for the 3 year program will need to travel each calendar year starting in 2021 otherwise future discounts are forfeited. For those signing up for the 5 year program, a tour must be taken at least every calendar year for 5 consecutive years beginning in 2021, otherwise future discounts are forfeited.
  • both the 3 year and 5 year programs can be taken in less than their respective 3 years or 5 years.
  • the program is only valid for scheduled ORYX Photo Tours listed as part of the Big Cats Photo Club and booked directly with ORYX. Private (custom) ORYX tours, extensions, and sister company tours (Rockjumper, Rockjumper Wildlife, Out of Bounds and Tau) do not qualify.
  • the first tour must be taken by the end of December 2021.
  • you may revisit any ORYX scheduled tour during this time frame, but said tours will not qualify for a discount under this program.
  • bookings must be made directly with ORYX Photo Tours and not via travel agents or other agencies.
  • accumulated tours in the program may not be transferred to any other person, nor may individuals pool their tours to accelerate the discount rate.
  • the discounts can only be applied against final invoice for the tour and may not be used as part of a tour deposit.
  • tours that are booked under this program may not be taken in conjunction or combined with any other discount, loyalty program, or price reduction.
  • a small group supplement may apply if there are not enough registrants for a particular tour; please note that the Big Cats Photo Club program discount will not apply to the small group supplement amount.
  • if the tour that you have signed up for is cancelled, an alternative tour will have to be chosen in that same calendar year to remain in the program.
  • ORYX Photo Tours retains the right to cancel this program at any time, but has all intentions of honouring its obligations for both programs until their respective 3 and 5 years have run their course.

This means that your savings can easily equate to the cost of a free tour!

See how this is possible in the example below (based on 2021 prices).

Year Tour Predominant species Discount Tour price Saving
2021 South Africa – Sabi Sands: The Big 5 Leopard 5% $5,100 $255
2022 India – Women Only Northern India Tiger 7.5% $9,975 $748
2023 Kenya – Life of Predators Cheetah 9% $6,575 $592
Total saving for 3-year program:  $1,595

 

2024 Brazil – Wildlife of the Pantanal Jaguar 13.5% $6,410 $2,460
2025 Botswana – Savute & Khwai Lion 15% $9,695 $3,049
Total saving for 5-year program:  $5,509

 

This particular example shows how a 5-year participant could accumulate a discount greater than the cost of their first tour!

 

But remember…
