The Shackleton & Selous Society means different things to different people. An opportunity to visit pristine, off-radar wildernesses with guides who truly understand them. Startling levels of luxury in places that once meant week-long walks and comfortless camping. For Mark Buckingham, our surefooted yachting specialist, being a part of Shackleton & Selous means that he can now offer something that was once restricted to the realm of dreams: the ultimate five-star freedom afloat, with the ultimate five-star guiding ashore.
Mark has spent 15 years developing one of the world’s most prestigious and well-regarded luxury yachting charter businesses in Cairns, on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
As well as building an exceptional portfolio of magnificent superyachts, he has earned a reputation for planning and guiding expeditions to an extraordinary range of far-flung, find-yourself destinations – from the vast icesheets of Antarctica to the untouched archipelagos of the Kimberley coast.
