South African filmmaker, John "JV" Varty, has spent some forty years photographing and working with big cats. His efforts were instrumental in helping Londolozi Game Reserve become one of the world’s premiere spots to view wild leopards. As the 21st Century began, Varty turned his attention to arguably the most endangered of big catsthe tiger.
Tiger Man of Africa covers two years in the lives of JV and his tigers at Tiger Canyons near Philippolis, South Africa. The journey begins with the mating of two pairs of adult tigers in 2008, and follows the adventures of the four cats and their offspring. Thanks to his ever present camera and his unique ability to get “up close and personal” with these magnificent animals, John Varty has created a remarkable video diary that documents the tiger as never before, from the miracle of birth to the thrill of the hunt to the hard reality of natural selection to the triumph of ultimate survival.
