World renowned raconteur, Rob Caskie, presents exhilarating stories of three explorers: Scott, Amundsen and Shackleton.
The South Pole was the ultimate quest at the turn of the last century and a race ensued to only end in bitter tragedy; who conquered and who perished?
With the South Pole reached, Shackleton was forced to rethink his polar ambitions and attempt to cross Antarctica from sea to sea - a distance of 2500km. An epic of human struggle and a triumph of the human spirit!
Join Rob for this fascinating talk in the Ballroom followed by a full buffet in Reuben’s for R 230 per personThursday 1 November 2012

* Is Pippa Middleton getting itchy feet? I only ask because she turned up at the Royal Geographical Society for a lecture on Scott in Antarctica, given by South African storyteller Rob Caskie, organised by travel company Abercrombie & Kent. It was a packed house, with all proceeds going to The Haven breast cancer charity. Her escort for the evening was brother James. “No one seemed to notice her,” says my man in the back row. “But then Caskie is one of the most charismatic speakers on the circuit.”
