About this trip

With towering snowcapped mountains, forbidding glaciers and flower-studded tundra, it is here where the formidable Polar Bear reigns as the apex predator and we hope to capture these white bears during our Svalbard photography tour on the drifting ice sprinkled across the ocean. Although Polar Bears are not as numerous as in the summer because there is more ice to hide on in winter, April is peak breeding time for them and these kings of the ice will be out on the glacier floors looking for a mate. Walruses, seals, arctic fox and reindeer are often seen, and seabirds are in the process of returning to their breeding grounds. Zodiac trips will be incorporated to get closer to wildlife, the ice and glaciers as we explore this unforgettable destination when it is completely devoid of humans.

Fabulous trip, well organised and our tour leader and photographer Penny Robartes was excellent. Good accommodation and locations were also good. Learned a lot from Penny about photography and took some of the best photos I have ever taken. Saw lots of animals and birds. the local guides were also well informed, helpful and excellent overall. In summary this was an excellent trip and will certainly look to undertake further trips with Oryx.
We had a memorable trip to Madagascar We have just been there for a week but we had the impression being there for a month We saw so many great locations and species in different national parks And finally being on the western coast to Morondava with islands beach and baobab Allée was very special It was a great trip we would love to do again. Kirsten is a great guide ! Hotels were perfectly chosen and also the local guide was very good And the drivers were great what is very important on these difficult roads. Thanks to all Best Johannes
The camera equipment was great Kirsten gave me a simple but efficient introduction I could work with very good Thanks so much Best johannes
