LUXURY CAMP & EMPEROR PENGUINS
From South Africa, your carbon offset flight will transport you to the world’s most indomitable wilderness—Antarctica. Within the Arctic Circle, on a continent of snow, ice, and 24-hour daylight, you’ll check into the continent’s most luxurious stay—Whichaway Camp. Settled in one of its cutting-edge, fur-stuffed sleeping pods, you’re set to begin your Antarctic experience of a lifetime.
Once you’ve enjoyed a restorative breakfast, you’ll step into your warm gear ahead for a short flight to Akta Bay. You’ll arrive at a spectacular and rarely seen wildlife event—the gathering of a 6,000-strong colony of Emperor Penguins with their chicks. Curious and unfrightened by humans, the penguins will waddle to within a few feet, and you’ll be engulfed in the community’s chatter.
A rare journey to a destination of genuine significance, your mission to the southernmost point on the planet will be a lasting milestone. It’s an expedition for which there is no shortcut—you’ll board a seven-hour flight from camp, with a stop after five hours to refuel. When you dismembark from the plane, and during the journey, you’ll come to understand the full unexplored immensity of Antarctica. Arriving at the lowest point on Earth, you’ll reach the marker, secure your passport stamp, and, once back at camp, celebrate with a magnificent six-course tasting menu.
