These tigers are proudly in Africa as part of an ex-situ project; to save a species outside its normal home range.
At Tiger Canyon, tigers thrive.
Tiger Canyon Private Game Reserve is a member of the Endangered Wildlife Trust’s Metapopulation Project, whereby our cheetah offspring are relocated to other reserves within the Metapopulation in a bid to help increase the cheetah numbers and keep the genetics clean.
Our cheetah are very habituated, allowing our guests to experience this beautiful cat up close.
Whilst the Karoo may appear flat, you’ll be surprised at the depth of the biodiversity, which supports an amazing array of small to large creatures, including – to name a few – zebra, blue wildebeest, warthogs, baboons, ground squirrels, jackals and antelope aplenty.
This allows Tiger Canyon to support a large number of both migratory and endemic populations of birds, such as Blue Crane, African Shell Duck, Kingfisher, the African Fish Eagle, the Lark Complex, grassland birds such as the Wydah, Secretary Bird, and Ostrich.
