best tour we have done

… It was fabulous from go to whoa.  Rob was a brilliant guide with his knowledge and enthusiasm being very contagious.  Nothing was too much trouble and he created a very close knit group without fellow travelers … to not do a tour with ethical adventures would be a mistake as it really doesn’t get any better than this …

Itinerary

Say hello to the outback sunrise as you are picked up bright and early from your Darwin hotel.

Relax for a comfortable drive, heading south as the brightening sky illuminates the northern landscapes.

Reach Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve and admire the wild antics of the abundant animals that call this place home. The area boasts over 230 species of birds, as well as one of the largest snake populations in Australia. Along the way, snack on tea, coffee, and homemade mango muffins, and let your guide tell you all about the many foods and medicinal plants that live here.

Next, travel to the Corroboree Billabong, part of a system of wetlands estimated to have the largest concentration of saltwater crocodiles in the world. Enjoy ample opportunities to spot these huge reptiles as you embark on a relaxing river cruise, making your way through their habitat.

Afterwards, crackers, cheese and sparkling cider overlooking Corroboree Billabong before making our way back to Darwin and return to your chosen location.

 

What a great day.
