About this book

A large-format, comprehensive account of one of the Earth's remaining wild places by TV wildlife expert Jonathan Scott, with breathtaking images by 2002 Wildlife Photographer of the Year, Angela Scott.

Best known for their African safaris, Jonathan and Angela Scott's other passion lies in their travels to Antarctica. When the sun sets at the end of a hot day in the Mara-Serengeti, they long for the austere and beautiful landscape of the Antarctic.

A safari to the southern ocean offers an array of emblematic creatures - penguins, albatrosses, seals and whales. A spectacular number of birds gather in breeding colonies there each year, and whales gather in the southern oceans to feed during the Antarctic summer making it the perfect location for whale watching.

Safari is the Swahili word for 'journey', and this book tells the story of their modern-day exploration of this extreme continent. Readers will take the journey with them, through the magnificent icy landscape, to explore the wildlife of this rare sanctuary, vividly captured in their prize-winning photography. On their journey they also reflect on the experiences of early explorers like Shackleton, Amundsen, Scott and Mawson, and on the relationship between man and the wildlife in this remote and spectacular environment.

"A journey to Antarctica changes your life. It forces you to take a long hard look at the state of our planet and its last wild places. Antarctica promises man the chance to do something that he has never done before - commit to the preservation of a vast wilderness, simply because it exists."
