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 Will Bolsover's Siberian Tiger Safari Blog.
