Join internationally acclaimed fine-art photographer David Yarrow on this exclusive expedition to the remote and beautiful island of South Georgia. Situated in the sub-Antarctic region of the Southern Ocean, South Georgia is known for being one of the most intense places to experience wildlife, set against a scenic backdrop of snow-capped mountains and rugged cliffs. Home to raucous king penguins numbering in the hundreds of thousands and around a million pairs of yellow crested macaroni penguins, as well as gentoo and chinstrap penguins, elephant and fur seals and huge seabird colonies, South Georgia is brimming with diverse wildlife.
This safari is focused on capturing the incredible wildlife and landscapes of the region on camera. David Yarrow will be on hand throughout your journey to provide tips and advice, and will spend time with each traveller individually to make sure you get the most out of your experience. 2017 saw David lead his first trip with Natural World Safaris, an expedition to Svalbard on which he captured his now iconic polar bear image 78 Degrees North, now on sale for close to £50,000 at London's Maddox Gallery. “I have been planning an autumn 2018 trip to South Georgia for some time," David writes, "and Natural World Safaris have offered me the chance to design a bespoke expedition. I have, to date, only led trips with Natural World Safaris as it is a partnership that works well. They do not compromise and neither do I."
