Safari Overview

Arrive into Khabarovsk, Russia and transfer approximately 4hrs along bumpy roads and eventually forest tracks to the remote forest reserve of Durminskoye. This is prime habitat for the last remaining Siberian tigers. Over the next five days or so, you explore the reserve by foot, skidoo and 4x4 in search of signs of the Amur tiger, setting up camera traps along the way and hoping to record some footage of these incredible predators. This trip revolves around the experience of being in the tigers natural habitat; chances of seeing the Siberian tiger in the flesh are slim and the focus of your activities revolve around exploring their terrain and setting camera traps to record footage. Find out more on the experience with our MD Will Bolsover's Siberian Tiger Safari Blog.

Trip Details


This is a specialist led wildlife expedition in Siberia however please note that Russia does not have the past history of catering to tourism especially in these extremely remote regions. To that extent, facilities are basic and we will provide you with a translator throughout your stay; rest assured though that you will be warmly received! Throughout your stay you will set out every day to explore the reserve in the hope of picking up tracks of the Siberian tigers that reside in this area. We do not actively track them as this can bring us into confrontation with the animals themselves, instead we set camera traps (both stills and video) and actively assist Alexander and his team in working to conserve the tigers of this region.
