Siberian Tiger & Leopard

  • Siberia, 10 days
About

Join experts and Siberian tiger conservationists at one of Russia’s newest and best tiger reserves on this pioneering tiger tracking holiday when you will hopefully catch sight of the elusive Siberian tiger and snow leopard. Explore the far eastern Russian parks of Durminskoye, Sikhote Alyn, and Lazovsky with local scientists and researchers, and go where very few people go in search of these beautiful big cats. This is a unique and very real wildlife adventure.

You should experience it because...

The Russian Far East is one of the few places in the world with an increasing tiger population, and this is just about the only tour in the world that offers you the chance to track down the two rarest big cats in the world. Spot other elusive mammals along the way including Aslatic black bears, musk deer, elk and moose.

Siberian Tiger & Leopard

This is one of the only safari tours that offer the chance of tracking tigers on foot – this is an exhilarating experience and one that you will never forget.

Stay in comfortable and well-equipped accommodation and Russian log cabins that are located inside the prime tiger habitats and private camps.

Be accompanied by a zoologist who has great experience working with and studying big cats all over the world, as well as experience in tracking cats on 5 continents.

Become one of the first people to dedicate time to tracking down and hopefully spotting tigers in Russia.

  • Days Details
  • 1 Arrive at Khabarovsk airport – met by zoologist expert and driver for transfer to the Durminskoye Reserve. Khabarovsk is a booming river town 25km from China and gives off an air of a coastal, almost Mediterranean resort with tree-lined streets, squares with fountains, 19thcentury brick buildings and green parks.
  • 2 – 12 Durminskoye Reserve – tiger tracking for the next 11 days You will be tiger tracking in the protected area of the Tiaga forest to the west of the Sikhote-Alyn mountain range in the Khabarovksi Krias. This forested mountainside and coastal ecosystem is home to one of the largest diversity of wildlife in all of Russia. In addition to the big cats there are 2 species of bear – the Asiatic black bear and a rare species of the brown bear – as well as lynx and wolves. Catch sight also of many prey animals including badgers, sables, red foxes, Eurasian otters, Siberian weasels and raccoon dogs. A big cat specialist zoologist expert as well as an English speaking naturalist guide from Russia are on hand at all times to help you spot the big cats and many of the other mammals and abundant bird life. The snow covered forests can seem barren on first sight, however trained guides will look for signs of tracks, scraps and tell tale signs of animal’s activity, and there will be opportunities to set up hides as well as camera traps to wait and see what arrives in the evenings and at night time. This is the best place in the world to see wild Siberian tigers – there are around 5 adult femaies and a resident male here and cubs with every female. The activities are mainly tracking on foot and skiing, and breakfast, lunch and dinner is included.
  • 13 Khabarovsk – day of rest Last chance to spot some of the wildlife in the reserve before being transferred back to the hotel at Khabarovsk. If you have time and energy, visit the Regional History Museum that showcases a few stuffed-animals and a full-on panorama of the snow 1922 civil war battle at Volochaevka.
