Belmond has launched a promotion to raise money to help save wild tigers.

Save Wild Tigers is an independent, non-profit organisation registered in the UK dedicated to turning back the clock for wild tigers. Tiger numbers have declined dramatically and have now reached a critical stage with only 3,500 left in the wild their survival is in the balance. Up to 30% of ticket prices for this journey will go directly to targeted tiger conservations programmes, including The Born Free Foundation, the Environmental investigation agency and Mycat in Malaysia.

Those who wish to be a part of the initiative can reserve a cabin on a very special Eastern & Oriental Tiger Express journey, taking place between 2-6 October 2014.

The journey begins at the iconic Raffles Hotel in Singapore, where guests can see a stunning Crystal Tigress sculpture on display, which has been created by the highly-accomplished Lauren Baker, using over 50,000 Swarovski crystals.

Then, following a luxurious overnight stay, guests and the Crystal Tigress will travel on board the Eastern & Oriental Express to Kuala Lumpur, joined by international celebrities, including fashion-icon Jimmy Choo, TV-personality Gok Wan from the UK, and actress Jamie Winstone.

That evening, guests will join an impressive fund-raising event hosted by the Save Wild Tigers charity at the famous Majestic Hotel, where Her Royal Highness Sultanah of Pahang will be the dinners Royal Patron. A tiger-inspired fashion show, part created by the esteemed Malaysia-based designer Tom Abang Saufi, will support a series of exquisite pieces of entertainment throughout the evening. The event culminates with a live-auction for the Crystal Tigress, with all proceeds going to support tiger conservation projects in Johor and Pahang, Malaysia.

On 4 October, guests of the Eastern & Oriental Tiger Express will enjoy a breakfast reception at the Eastern&Oriental hotel in Penang, which officially launches a two-week long tiger-inspired photographic exhibition at the property. In addition, on the following day, train passengers will join tiger experts for a jungle trek to the River Kwai bridge. This five day adventure completes on 6 October with a cocktail reception and overnight stay at the Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok. 

Prices start from 2,960 (approx. US$ 4,832) per person for this five days/four night journey.
