Travel to Antarctica can be tricky — especially if you’re prone to seasickness (see Editor’s Letter, page 4). But for explorers with deep pockets, luxury travel operator Red Savannah has a posh alternative.
Its new nine-day Antarctica by Private Jet itinerary (starting at $96,000 per person) takes clients to the White Continent from Cape Town, South Africa, via Gulfstream jet. Highlights of the journey include visiting an emperor penguin colony to see the threatened species up close; flying to the South Pole for a guided walk and an overnight at South Pole Camp; exploring the area’s vast, remote terrain; and visiting a local science base.
For most of the trip, clients stay at Whichaway Camp, where they’ll relax after a day of exploring in insulated, heated fiberglass sleeping pods at the eco-friendly accommodation, which adheres to strict environmental guidelines to minimize impact on the Earth. (Much of the camp is powered by renewable energy; all emissions are offset through a portfolio of carbon projects for the flights; and all human waste is transported out of the destination.)
For adventurous high-end clients, Antarctica by Private Jet just may be the ultimate “chill” vacation.
