Wolf's Fang Runway
Using specialist techniques and machinery, we have created a runway that is uncompromising in its safety and that minimises the likelihood of delay. With experienced pilots making more than 20 flights per season, Wolf's Fang is now regarded as a well-established and reliable airbridge between Africa and Antarctica.
We recognise that Antarctica is a pristine wilderness and make stringent efforts to ensure that our footprint is absolutely minimal. With an ENDS environmental award and carbon neutral since 2007, we are continually working to improve the ways in which we interact with this incredible environment.
Whichaway Camp is unique and the perfect base from which to start your adventure. Having won the World Travel Awards five times, the camp is also designed with a minimal environmental footprint in mind.
With a 6,750NM range the Gulfstream G550 is one of the most capable business jets in the world, and has the capacity to fly from Cape Town to Wolf’s Fang runway and back again without refuelling.
It is also fast. Traveling at 0.85 mach, we reach Antarctica in only five hours and with more than 20 landings each season, our pilots have built up a huge amount of experience.
LUXURY ACROSS THE OCEAN
The Gulfstream range is famous for its wide oval windows, which offer incredible views as we fly over the icebergs of the Southern Ocean.
With a wide cabin and a luxurious 12-seat configuration, this is undoubtedly the most comfortable way to travel to Antarctica.
“It has always been a dream to set foot on the continent of Antarctica. I never would have believed that it was possible to do it in such style and comfort.” Rick Garratt
The Basler BT-67 is a versatile and durable aircraft that is able to land on snow and ice. It has a wide cabin, extended range and is used for flying in the interior of Antarctica – most notably to the South Pole and Emperor Penguins.
We have two identical aircraft and the crew are highly experienced in polar operations. Our chief pilot has nine seasons of Antarctic experience, and last year, all our groups reached the South Pole.
