How fit do I need to be?
Kakadu, Arnhemland and Litchfield are rough and rugged stone bush country. In many of the places we access and those listed in the itinerary, there are cleared walking tracks, but not boardwalks or handrails. Some of the walks are over slippery and uneven ground, and we will always advise caution when walking over these surfaces. A reasonable level of fitness & stable footing is required for most locations in these itineraries and to make the most of the experience. Territory Expeditions has designed these tours for the fit and active.
To get the most out of this trip you need to be prepared for walks of between 3-8 km on some days. This may be on rough ground and perhaps getting feet wet in rivers and creeks. From Oct to March you will experience temperatures of over 35 degrees Celsius (and sometimes well into the 40’s) so be prepared to endure extra physical stress due to the heat at these times, especially while on walks.
These extreme outside temperatures can also place stress on the air-conditioning units within our vehicles which can make travelling uncomfortable. Your tour guide will assist with regular breaks and information to assist in keeping well hydrated.
Will I be able to use my phone?
Mobile phone reception is available around all major service centers within Kakadu, Litchfield, Arnhemland and Mardugal campground. There is a Satellite phone on every vehicle for emergencies.
The most important thing to remember is your on holidays and that’s a great reason to not have a phone!!
Are you able to cater for dietary needs?
Passengers with special meal requirements must ensure they or their travel agent inform Territory Expeditions of this at the time of booking. Food for the trip is purchased prior to commencement and special requirements cannot be catered for after departing. Vegetarians, Celiac or those with any special meal requirements may need to provide additional assistance to the leader for meal preparation.
