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
