May 2019 – Announcing a limited-edition trip for November 2019, Singita is launching a spectacular 11-night Adventure to the South in collaboration with One&Only and White Desert. The journey takes guests from the warm lowveld of Kruger National Park in South Africa to the icy expanse of Antarctica, giving safari lovers the chance to see the rarest wildlife on both continents – from Africa’s iconic animals to Antarctica’s vast colony of 28,000 emperor penguins.

The partnership between Singita and White Desert represents more than just an opportunity to experience these iconic animals up close. Both companies are founded on a passion and commitment to preserve the landscapes and wildlife they operate in. Singita has been helping with the conservation of large areas of rare and iconic African wilderness for more than 25 years, while White Desert operates a zero-impact policy and have been carbon neutral since 2007.

This epic journey includes 4 nights at Singita Kruger National Park and 2 nights in the One&Only Hotel in Cape Town. From there, the White Desert private jet awaits: flying into the heart of Antarctica, where the unique Whichaway Camp is home for the next 5 nights.

White Desert’s co-founder Robyn Woodhead is part of the IAATO Executive Committee and says:

“Working with brands like Singita to showcase the world’s finest wildlife is a very exciting prospect. Few people know that Cape Town is a gateway into Antarctica, and it’s amazing to be able to combine it with the wild beauty of South Africa. The timing is also vital, because when the guests arrive in Antarctica, the emperor penguin chicks will just be stepping off their parent’s feet and the colony will be at its largest. Its like being on the set of the movie Happy Feet.”

Experience Rwanda

Tucked between Tanzania to the east, Uganda to the north and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west, Rwanda is a remarkably small country nestled in a 10,169-square mile pocket of land brimful of high-altitude forests and shimmering lakes. Known affectionately as “The land of a Thousand Hills” due to the endless stretches of undulating hills in its topography, this tiny country offers as many experiences too. And Rwanda’s warm heart and gentle spirit are increasingly beckoning likeminded travelers to embrace its beauty.
