If you’re pondering about why visit South Georgia
, the fascinating wildlife ought to convince you. Despite being a small outpost in the vastness of the south Atlantic, the sea around South Georgia is one of the liveliest areas on earth. The abundant marine life supports millions of seals, whales, penguins and seabirds. Keep an eye out for large pods of whales off the coast; the wandering albatross – the bird with the largest wingspan; harems of hulking elephant seals and their adorable, inquisitive pups; and of course, the real reason you’ve come to this faraway land – the large, noisy rookeries of King Penguins.
