Explore South Georiga in early summer
We invite you to join us on a very special 15 days (14 nights) South Georgia photo tour in October 2024. WildPhoto Travel will be chartering the entire ship, M/V Polar Pioneer, for photographer only expeditions - 12.10-26.10 2024. There will be a maximum of 53 guests, together with 5 guides. Get ready for an exciting photo expedition to South Georgia!
The main focus on our South Georgia photo expeditions will be penguins, seabirds, seals and landscapes. South Georgia is one of the hotspots for breeding King penguins, Gentoo penguins and Macaroni penguins, and some of the beaches are over-flooded with these birds. We will have early landings on the beaches to get the best light conditions, which you will miss on ordinary tourist trips. There are also breeding colonies of albatrosses on the islands.
The Elephant seals and Antarctic fur seals have entered the beaches in October, and we will have a lot of action and photo opportunities when these animals are fighting over the females and the best spots on the beach.
We will schedule longer stops than usual on a normal South Georgia photo tour when going ashore. We do this in order to provide participants enough time to get great photo opportunities. We use 5 zodiac boats to get ashore or when searching for the wildlife at sea.
With 8-9 full days around South Georgia, these expeditions are for nature photographers who want more quality time with the sub-antarctic wildlife and landscape.
