About this trip

Near South America’s southernmost tip lies a vast and wild land that sprawls across Argentina and Chile, and is home to fantastic mountain peaks, vast and empty steppes, glaciers and icefields and some incredible animals. This area – Patagonia – is world-renowned for its incredible natural beauty, and it is here where the elusive Puma can be found far easier than almost anywhere in the Americas. Frequently regarded as one of the most beautiful places in the world, the 1,800 square kilometre / 700 square mile Torres del Paine National Park is our chosen spot for our Patagonia photo tour to photograph the beautiful Puma; the open terrain and good population of Pumas, together with the fact that their habits are well known means that we have a very good chance of seeing and photographing them on foot!

With other wildlife including the Guanaco, Andean Deer, Hairy Armadillo, Chilla Fox, Geoffrey’s Cat and Patagonian Weasel awaiting to be seen, not to mention fantastic bird life, Torres del Paine is assuredly a photographic destination that needs to be ticked off the bucket list!


Patagonia, specifically Torres Del Paine, is world-renowned for its incredible natural beauty and it supports one of the largest concentrations of Puma in the world. 


April is ideal for photographers as autumn colours set in and Puma mother cats are actively hunting to provide food to their growing cubs. 


Along with its most popular drawcard, the puma, Torres Del Paine also plays host to numerous other wildlife species and is known for its fantastic birding as well. All set against a backdrop comprising of mountains, glaciers, lakes and rivers. It is truly a photogenic locale!


This photo tour is limited to only 6 guests and will include a puma tracker and local guide on top of photographic tutoring. 


We will be trekking by foot in order to close to wildlife sightings and incorporate light hiking to some of the best vistas in the park for landscape photography.

The trip was great! The photo guides and particularly the trip leader did an exceptional job! Even with the closures due to avian flu, we were able to see a lot and have great wildlife experiences!

Throughout our extraordinary excursion, we had the privilege of encountering an array of fascinating wildlife up close and personal. Our well-informed guides were constantly vigilant in their search for creatures, enabling us to make the most of our time taking photographs. The crew of the Orion vessel was exceptionally considerate, supportive, and dedicated to ensuring that our voyage was delightful. The cuisine on board was delectable, and the living quarters were both roomy and cozy. We even had the pleasure of meeting other travelers who had previously embarked on this same journey and were returning for a repeat experience. If we ever have the opportunity to revisit Svalbard, we would undoubtedly choose to embark on this same journey.

Dear Grégoire Thank you for your kind words, we are so glad to hear that you had an amazing trip. We look forward to hosting you on another ORYX adventure soon! Best Regards The ORYX Photo Tours Team
Please let me start off by saying how amazing this experience in Tanzania and the Serengetti was. Everything from start to finish was so wonderfully and carefully planned out by the ORYX team! The accommodations were perfect, the food amazing and everyone we encountered on this safari were beyond pleasant, joyful and incredibly helpful in attending to our needs. The Alex Walker camps are picture perfect representations of the romantisied image that being on safari in Africa is the quintessential adventure that refreshes ones soul. Our tour leader was Penny Robartes...and she is quite simply an amazing person. One of the best humans I have been fortunate to meet in my lifetime. Her outlook on life, her deep love of Africa and her incredible knowledge of her surrounding is infectious and something to count yourself lucky to have encountered during your lifetime. Penny is very accommodating to everyone in the group and will do all she can to make your time on safari one of the most memorable times of your life. My safari bucket list continues to grow, even as I cross off iconic destinations...and I can't wait to once again safari with the team from Oryx! Dave Linde Montana, USA

Dear David, We are thrilled to read such a wonderful review about Penny and your travels with ORYX. Penny is most definitely an asset to our team, not only with her photography but her pleasant and easygoing demeanor and her passion and drive! We really appreciate the time taken to write this lovely review. We are so proud of what we do and the photographic team we have! We love hearing when our guests enjoy exploring and photographing the beauty and wonders of Africa and the world. We cannot wait to see you on another ORYX tour soon! Best Wishes The ORYX Photo Tours Team.
Amazing, bucket list trip. First class organisation, and everything exceeded expectations. The Londolozi photography tour was exceptional, with Greg du Toit not only being an exceptional and understanding teacher, but great company as well! It was hard to leave, but we could not recommend this tour, Greg and Oryx any higher.
