WHAT TO EXPECT

There’s no place better to experience an authentic outback safari than Kakadu National Park. Located 240 kilometres east of Darwin in Australia’s tropical north, this spot is world heritage listed and full of outback adventure. 


Home to wetlands, waterfalls, wildlife and over 2000 plant species, this budget-friendly, three-day tour will uncover the wonders of the area’s pristine wilderness and will teach you about the history and culture of the Aboriginal people.


Day 1 - Darwin to Kakadu National Park via Mary River Wildlife Cruise (lunch & dinner)
Be ready for collection from your Darwin accommodation at approximately 6:30 am. It's an early start, but the wonders of the Mary River Wetlands are waiting. This region is home to the largest concentration of saltwater crocodiles in the world as well as a huge variety of birds and other local wildlife. This is an amazing chance to encounter these species in their natural habitat.

Explore the region on a wildlife cruise and get up close to the animals! There'll be plenty of opportunities to take pictures.

Later, wend your way along the water to enter Kakadu National Park via the South Alligator River. This is a picturesque location perfect for a picnic lunch! It also has a visitor centre with tons of Aboriginal art and crafts available for purchase.

Next, head over to Ubirr where you can view a wide range of ancient Aboriginal art that will be interpreted by your guide. Enjoy spectacular panoramic views over the floodplain and beyond into Arnhem Land and learn the story of the Rainbow Serpent.

Once night falls, head to your private campsite for dinner and an overnight sleep in a swag!


Day 2  - Twin and Jim Jim Falls to Litchfield National Park (breakfast, lunch & dinner)
Day two! Today is the day to venture off the beaten track for a day of adventure and explore world heritage listed Kakadu National Park.

After breakfast, leave your camp and journey towards the majestic Twin Falls Gorge. This spot is so remote it can only be accessed by a 4WD, followed by a boat shuttle and a finally a boardwalk. Marvel at its remote beauty and don’t forget to look out for the freshwater crocodiles and pig-nosed turtles breeding on the tiny beaches along the gorge.

Next, take a wander through monsoon forests and over boulders to Kakadu’s main attraction – Jim Jim Falls. A spectacular falls surrounded by 150-metre red ochre cliffs, this is a great spot for some photos and a quick dip.

Later in the afternoon, depart in search of Litchfield National Park, an oasis home to stunning waterfalls, iconic termite mounds and sandstone pillars. Along the way stop at your private campsite and cook up a hearty meal with your fellow adventurers.


Day 3 - Litchfield National Park to Darwin (breakfast, lunch)
Spend your last day swimming and hiking through the streams, rugged sandstone escarpments and cascading waterfalls of Litchfield’s National Park.

Admire the region’s magnetic and cathedral termite mounds – amazing architectural feats up to two metres high complete with arches, chimneys, tunnels and chambers.

Discover the spectacular double falls at Florence and Wangi Falls and dive into the refreshing Buley Rockhole pools, before an early evening arrival back in Darwin.

    Dietary:

    We have Gluten free foods on our Safaris with most being naturally gluten free such as rice, rice cakes, etc. We provide gluten free pasta. We do not provide specialist items such as Gluten Free muesli and bread. Generally speaking foods that naturally have gluten we do not provide a gluten free option of (ie bread). We have lots of fresh vegetables and fruit with meat dishes cooked separately to vegetable dishes to cater for those that choose not to eat meat. Also, with anyone who is Lactose Intolerant, we do not provide any milk substitutes. So, if you prefer to carry any, that’s not a  problem, we can store it for you.

    If you want a specific food item we ask that you provide this yourself no matter your dietary requirement.

    Allergies:

    We find many people with allergies, particularly nut allergies. It is important for guests to know that whilst we will not purposely give them a food with their allergen in it, it is their responsibility to check the label if they are concerned. We do allow guests to provide their own snacks and we cannot control what other guests choose to bring themselves, therefore if someone has a nut allergy for example, we cannot guarantee that people on the vehicle will be not eating nuts and it is their responsibility to look after their health needs. Generally on our trips the only food source that will have nuts is Muesli bars. All allergies, no matter how small must be disclosed and noted prior to departure.
