South Georgia is our avorite place on Earth, a wilderness that mesmerizes everyone who visits with its scenic magnicence andabundance o wildlie. What’s more, this eect does not diminish even ater repeated exposures. Combined, we’ve traveled toits shores more than 140 times, yet each new exploration stirs in us the same enthusiasm and wonder that the rst did. Tus, wecould think o no better place to celebrate
Zegrahm’s 20th anniversary!
 What is this irresistible and enduring lure o South Georgia? Why is it that once is never enough? First, there are the vistas,pristine, varied, and awe-inspiring: bays and ords bordered by snowcapped mountains, grassy hillsides, and cascading glaciers;striated rock ormations; snow-covered plateaus; clis draped in huge icicles, some o them over 15 eet in length. Icebergs, calvedby the Antarctic ice shelves ar to the south, orm a labyrinth o antastically shaped sculptures.Next, we have the wildlie. We’ll witness colonies o thousands upon thousands o majestic king penguins. Macaroni andgentoos are also prevalent, along with snowy sheathbills, petrels, prions, and the ever-present opportunistic skuas. Four specieso albatross have chosen South Georgia as their breeding place, and we will spy the most regal o them all, the wanderingalbatross, largest o all fying birds. More than one and a hal million ur seals cram the beaches, while nearby their blubbery cousins the elephant seals snort and bellow. Reindeer graze on the hillsides, and whales—humpbacks, orcas, minkes—populatethe waters we sail.Finally, there’s the romance and adventure associated with Sir Ernest Shackleton, to whom we pay homage at his Grytvikengravesite. As we walk in the ootsteps o Shackleton and his men, their drive and heroism in the ace o lie-threatening privationresonates across the years. We invite you to join us aboard the
Clipper Adventurer 
and celebrate as we look back at 20 years o adventures and unorgettableexperiences, and toast to uture expeditions. Warmest regards,Mike Messick, Jack Grove, Peter Harrison & Shirley MetzZegrahm Coounders
