About

White Desert understands and respects that Antarctica is a highly sensitive wilderness.

As such, we operate in strict accordance with the environmental tourism guidelines laid out in the Antarctic Treaty. We also go further and operate our own zero impact policy.

To achieve this, all human waste is transported out of Antarctica on regular flights and disposed of responsibly in South Africa.

A significant proportion of the camp is powered by renewable energy, using photovoltaic solar panels for electrical supply and solar water heaters for the shower system.

In addition to this, White Desert is an accredited CarbonNeutral® company and offsets all emissions through a portfolio of Carbon projects for our flights to Antarctica and the associated logistics once there.

ZERO environmental print means…

  • A Temporary Camp
  • All Waste Removed
  • Renewable Power

…and CarbonNeutral® for the entire experience.
