EXPERIENCE THE MOST EXTRAVAGANT WILDLIFE SPECTACLE ON EARTH IN SOUTH GEORGIA & THE FALKLANDS WITH MUNDY ADVENTURES
Adventure and expedition cruise specialist, Mundy Adventures, is offering the ultimate expedition for immersion in wildlife, South Georgia and the Falklands. Unanimously rated “the most spectacular place I’ve ever been” by travellers, and often compared to the Serengeti for the sheer mass of wildlife, the voyage takes place as South Georgia and the Falklands bursts with life after a fruitful summer and includes time in Buenos Aires.
The one time 19-night wildlife-focused voyage is set onboard the 148-guest National Geographic Explorer and departs on 7th March 2014 – a fitting kick off to the 100th Anniversary celebration of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition (1914-1917).
Steeped in Shackleton and whaling lore, covered mostly in glaciers, South Georgia explodes with life: gentoo, rockhopper and macaroni penguins, enormous elephant seals and a thriving fur seal population. On South Georgia you can observe one of the world’s great wildlife spectacles: literally 200,000 stately king penguins on a single beach. See the human face of the region in the Falklands, with grazing sheep, tea and crumpets. And, in this privileged place, the albatross reveal the beauty of their mysterious lives. During time in Buenos Aires, guests will enjoy a host of exclusive events. An expedition for wildlife or photography enthusiasts, National Geographic photographer Michael Melford will share insider tips and techniques on photography, along with a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor.
Joining the expedition as a special guest speaker is Dr Joe MacInnis, Canada’s first deep-sea explorer and the first person to explore the ocean beneath the North Pole. He led ten research expeditions under the Arctic Ocean to develop the systems and techniques to make scientific surveys beneath the polar ice cap. His teams built the first undersea polar station and discovered the world’s northernmost known shipwreck. Among the first to dive to the Titanic, he was recently on James Cameron’s Deepsea Challenge team for the historic seven-mile dive into the Mariana Trench.
Prices for this 19-night South Georgia & The Falklands cruise start from £11,323 per person (based on the 7th March departure) including return flight from London to Miami, overnight accommodation in Miami, return flight from Miami to Buenos Aires, overnight accommodation in Buenos Aires, return flight from Ushuaia, 15 nights onboard National Geographic Explorer (including meals, excursions, services of Lindblad Expeditions’ Leader, naturalist staff and expert guides, use of kayaks, entrance fees, all port charges and service taxes) and all oversees transfers.
