We would like to congratulate multiple repeat ORYX guests Nima Sarikhani on the brilliant images he captured while on tour with ORYX Photo Tours! We pride ourselves on providing guests with high level tuition while on tour.
We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Nima Sarikhani for achieving outstanding recognition in the esteemed Natural History Museum Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2023 competition. Nima’s remarkable talent has been acknowledged with the People’s Choice Award, a testament to the captivating power and universal appeal of his images.
In the icy expanse of Svalbard, Nima Sarikhani’s award-winning image unfolded after three days of relentless searching for polar bears in the thick fog of Norway’s northern archipelago. Patiently observing two male bears for eight hours, Nima captured the poignant moment when a young male, just before midnight, meticulously carved a bed on a small iceberg using his powerful paws before drifting into sleep.
“I couldn’t possibly rave more about ORYX, their team and their energy and professionalism. Every single trip over the last 12 years has been a dream, expertly organised and incredibly well supported when things out of their control (as happens!) go wrong. All of your tour leaders have been super helpful and become dear friends. Thank you again and I can’t wait to travel with you again!”
