ORYX Photo Tours is proud to present a tour designed to take you to South Africa’s top destination whose wildlife sightings and encounters bring visitors from around the world to it; Tiger Canyon Reserve.

 

The Tiger Canyon Reserve Tiger Canyon is located in the Great Karoo, just 25km from the pastoral town of Philippolis in the Free State Province of South Africa, on the banks of the Van der Kloof Dam.

Tiger Canyon arguably boasts the best photographic opportunity of wild tigers in the world. Complemented by a wild and bold landscape, the tigers can be found in a number of striking natural settings ranging from grasslands to rocky crags to verdant reeded dams. The cats are all habituated to game viewing vehicles, which allows you to get close enough to feel their energy.

Days 2 to 3: Tiger Canyon

Tiger Canyon is located in the Great Karoo, just 25km from the pastoral town of Philippolis in the Free State Province of South Africa, on the banks of the Van der Kloof Dam.   The beauty of the Karoo occupies a prominent place in the spiritual psyche of South Africa. Many of South Africa's talented artists originate from, or were inspired by the Karoo: the playwright Athol Fugard's Road to Mecca was a study of the famous Nieu-Bethesda artist Helen Martins, while Philippolis was home to world-renowned author Laurens van der Post. It is a place of old folktales inspired by the ancient landscape.   Tiger Canyon arguably boasts the best photographic opportunity of wild tigers in the world. Complemented by a wild and bold landscape, the tigers can be found in a number of striking natural settings ranging from grasslands to rocky crags to verdant reeded dams. The cats are all habituated to game viewing vehicles, which allows you to get close.
