About Juani Volker

Logistics & Expedition Guide


South African naturalist Juani has been exploring the waters of Antarctica since 2011. Her first exposure to the polar waters was on board a small private icebreaker that visited such remote islands as Bouvet Island.

Juani joined Quark Expeditions in 2013. A wildlife and cultural guide, she has guided in the southern Kalahari Desert and, more recently when home, along the Garden Route of South Africa. She loves the bush and believes that almost nothing surpasses falling asleep under the stars while listening to the jackal, hyena and lion calls around you. But as she has discovered, equally alluring is the peace you find only in beautiful, magical Antarctica, where awe-inspiring glaciers and amazing wildlife encounters leave you yearning to return.
