Lions and penguins
Singita has launched a trip for November which will take safari lovers from the warm lowveld of Kruger National Park in South Africa to the icy expanse of Antarctica.
The 11-night Adventure to the South itinerary is a collaboration with One&only and White Desert and includes four nights at Singita Kruger National Park and two nights in the One&only Hotel in Cape Town.
From there, guests will board the White Desert private jet and fly into the heart of Antarctica, where they will spend the next five nights at the unique Whichaway Camp. “Few people know that Cape Town is a gateway into Antarctica, and it’s amazing to be able to combine it with the wild beauty of South Africa,” White Desert co-founder Robyn Woodhead said.
“The timing is also vital, because when the guests arrive in Antarctica, the emperor penguin chicks will just be stepping off their parent’s feet and the colony will be at its largest. It’s like being on the set of the movie Happy Feet.”
