The rest of the camp comprises a shower pod, kitchen and three centralised pods that make up the reception, lounge and dining room.

EMPEROR PENGUIN COLONY

Two hours' flight in a Basler BT-67 from our main camp and you are at a site of more than 6,000 penguins and their young chicks. Both are totally unafraid of humans and will come within a few meters of our group, immersing you in the noise, commotion and the sheer beauty of it all. This is one of the greatest – and yet least observed – wildlife events on the planet.
