Our award-winning chef is based at our camp preparing three meals a day for our clients. From hearty breakfasts of bacon and eggs to picnics whilst out trekking, the ingredients are all sourced locally in Cape Town and then flown into Antarctica. The evening meal is really the main event with delicious three course meals, fine wine and a chance for everyone to relax in the warm and spacious dining tent whilst recounting some of the stories from the day. Clients often think they will loose some weight coming to Antarctica, but with Jenna’s amazing food, it’s rarely the case!
