Specialist travel outfitter Natural World Safaris announces an exclusive new photographic safari for 2018 to South Georgia led by renowned wildlife photographer David Yarrow. Forming part of its specialist led Aperture by NWS service, just 12 guests will sail onboard the expedition Hanse Explorer, from the 3rd to 17th November 2018 to discover the wild southern Atlantic Ocean.

From 100,000 elegant king penguins which cover the Salisbury Plain to the colossal southern elephant seals in Right Whale Bay, the dramatic backdrop of snow-capped peaks and rugged cliffs is the ideal setting to capture incredible wildlife photography.

David Yarrow has developed a reputation for capturing the natural world in breath-taking images, photographing some of the planet’s most endangered species. On this trip, he will share his expertise with one-on-one tuition for each guest. From framing the shot to editing, David will offer practical guidance whilst also sharing his personal tales of wildlife photography and conservation work across the globe.

David Yarrow says, “I have been planning an autumn 2018 trip to South Georgia for some time 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.

“South Georgia is one the world’s most treasured wildlife locations and offers the chance to take stunning photographs. The weather can be unpredictable and there is merit in allocating several days to visually intoxicating locations such as St Andrews Bay. It is a long way to go, to then rush off again.

Jonathan Lee, a guest on David Yarrow’s last Natural World Safaris expedition to Svalbard in 2017 recounts the experience;

“Nothing really prepares you for an expedition of this sort – it was something truly special. The combination of a best in class operator in Natural World Safaris, a master of his craft in David Yarrow, and a small group of individuals from different corners of the globe, made for an experience like no other.

“When I set off for Svalbard with NWS last year, I anticipated breathtaking scenery, incredible wildlife encounters and impeccable operations. The expedition delivered these in spades. I would end each day in disbelief at what I had witnessed, and start the next giddy with excitement and wide-eyed wonder.

Natural World Safaris offers the 15-day South Georgia Photography Safari from £35,000 per person, excluding international flights.
