A unique, life-changing and thrilling African safari experience. Most of our safaris are exclusive and specifically tailored to each guest.
The guides at Tiger Canyon are incredibly knowledgeable about our tigers, our cheetahs, our wildlife, the geology of the area, our birds and our plant life. They’re so skilful, they can practically speak tiger!
Tiger Canyon is an amazing photographic destination. You’ll be able to photograph our tigers, our cheetahs and the other wildlife that call Tiger Canyon home like never before.
Our photographic prototype Land Cruiser allows photographers and videographers the best opportunities to capture our magnificent tigers in a host of natural behaviours and activities.
The photographic opportunities at Tiger Canyon are varied and unique, we guarantee that photographers will get extraordinary big cat shots and our guides are skilled in manoeuvring the vehicle into position.
Guests experience the cats up close and get to follow them off-road to ensure it’s more than just a game drive.
Our menu and selection of food was created in a Karoo-style, to incorporate the ingredients found in the region. We delight our guests with a unique taste of South Africa.
Our amazing chefs offer gourmet plated meals and relaxed family-style eats. Our kitchen offers both meat and vegetarian options, and our chefs cater to any dietary requirements and restrictions.

Philippolis, the nearest town to Tiger Canyon, is an artist’s haven. The region has a rich history as part of the Karoo and the Free State.
Tiger Canyon is situated in the False Karoo. On this section of the Free State, along the Orange River, the landscape is filled with deep ravines, treed gully’s, uniquely different rocky outcrops and a balance between open grassland and spectacular canyons.
The Orange River flows into the Van der Kloof Dam (South Africa’s second largest dam), bordering the Free State and Northern Cape provinces. Views of the unspoilt dam are best enjoyed from the highest point of Tiger Canyon. Ask your guide to take you there.
If you’re staying nearby, a day trip to Tiger Canyon will be the absolute highlight of your visit to the Karoo.
