Perched on the slopes of Lion’s Head in the prestigious Bantry Bay residential area in Cape Town, Ellerman House has recently announced its partnership with White Desert, in order to provide 24-hour trips to Antarctica from the hotel. White Desert is the first and only luxury camp in Antarctica, and has now launched this exclusive jet service from Cape Town. With the first departure scheduled for November 2017, this dedicated Gulfstream jet will seat 14 guests for the ultimate adventure across the icebergs of the Southern Ocean to the exclusive Wolf’s Fang runway, which sits beneath one of the most spectacular and iconic mountains on the continent. Once landed, guests are surrounded by kilometre high monoliths of rock that rise vertically from the ice, creating a landscape that is simply breath taking. The day culminates in a gourmet champagne dinner before we head back to the warmth and heat of Africa $10,000 per person including safety briefing in Cape Town, return transfers for Antarctica flights, return flight to Antarctica (inc. a 30kg baggage allowance), all accommodation, food and drink (including all alcohol) in Antarctica, all guiding fees, support of field guides and logistics staff, the use of certain items of polar clothing, as denoted on equipment list, payment by White Desert Ltd of a ‘Carbon Tax’ for offsetting emissions created by all logistics associated with Antarctic travel.
