Discover all of the Top End's most iconic places on this 3 day 4x4 safari. With a private vehicle and local guide, you will delve deep into Kakadu and Litchfied National parks by day and relax in luxury permanent tents under the Great Southern sky by night. Explore the Mary River wetlands and spot some of Australia's famous saltwater crocodiles on a river cruise before heading for the waterfalls of Kakadu National Pakr.
Day 1: Darwin to Mary River, via Litchfield National Park
Flush with waterfalls, swimming holes and some pretty gigantic termite mounds, Litchfield National Park encapsulates all that’s wonderful about the Top End. We’ll start off here checking out Florence Falls and the Buley Rockholes, then break for a picnic before travelling on to Wangi Falls for a final swim and leisurely stroll through monsoon forest. Leaving Litchfield, it’s on and into Mary River National Park. The species of saltwater crocodile found in Australia are the biggest in the world, and the Mary River wetlands are absolutely full of them. See how many you can spot on an afternoon river cruise. All tents are twin-share and come with a proper bed. (LD)
Day 2: Kakadu National Park: Ubirr & Barramundi Gorge
In giving Kakadu National Park World Heritage-listing, UNESCO described it as a ‘living cultural landscape with exceptional natural and cultural values’. Indigenous people have lived here for more than 50,000 years, to which the ancient rock paintings of Ubirr can attest. Your guide will explain the significance of these artworks during an interpretative cultural walk that finishes on a rocky escarpment overlooking the Nardab floodplain. In the afternoon we head to either Maguk (Barramundi Gorge) or Gunlom Falls (seasonal choice). Swimming spots don’t get a whole lot more inviting than either of these spectacular sites. (BLD)
Day 3: Kakadu to Darwin
Given that Kakadu covers approximately the same amount of land as Slovenia, the sky’s a pretty good place to see it all from. This morning you’ll have the option of taking a scenic flight over the billabongs, bushlands and floodplains that make up this ruggedly beautiful region. After a stop in at the Bowali visitors centre to learn more about the park before we break for lunch before starting our journey back to Darwin. (BL)
