Journeys Unforgettable, a destination specialist who has a heart and passion for Africa and her homeland, offers those travelers a very unique and specific opportunity to venture outside the jungles, deserts, and savannas for a “polar opposite” experience. Each year, Journeys Unforgettable privately charters an ice breaker to circumnavigate the Arctic Archipelago of Svalbard.
Svalbard is the northernmost tip of Europe and, with its settlements also being the northernmost permanently inhabited spots on the planet! Located between the 76° and 81° parallels, the archipelago of Svalbard is far more northerly than any part of Alaska and all but a few of Canada’s Arctic islands. In fact, they would be permanently locked in by ice if not for the moderating influence of the Gulf Stream, and it is this comparative warmth that makes them habitable. Who would have thought that the waters in Florida Straits would effect the polar bears in the North Pole ?!?!
This year’s photographic adventure welcomed 12 guests for each departure (2 x 12 Day trips), with Arctic Guide and Polar Bear Expert Rinie van Meurs and professional photographer Dana Allen as the groups’ lead guides.

No sooner had we set up our office / classroom / download centre at Pafuri luxury tent camp than we received our first curious visitor.
This was one of the locations for the photography workshop in conjunction with Journeys Unforgettable. It really was an amazing location with each elevated luxury tent and the main restaurant / bar overlooking the Luvuvhu River. There was always something to see without going anywhere, crocodiles, impala and elephants to name a few. At night we were frequented by cheetah and lions. It was amazing to listen to the sounds of nature at night from within your luxury tent. (tent is somewhat of a generous term for a luxury lodge room that happens to have canvas walls). A fabulous place to enjoy the times between our morning and afternoon game drives!

Steve and Brennan have been arranging trips for us for the last 10 years, even before Journeys Unforgettable was officially launched. Together with Wilderness Safaris, they have planned our trips to the last detail-and these African Adventures have made such an influence on us that next May we will be traveling to Africa for a fourth time on one of the Photo Workshops to Botswana. We highly recommend Journeys Unforgettable in planning your next African Safari! –Cheryl and Gary (Florida)…
