This was an amazing adventure. The guides were super informative, the accommodation was fabulous and the meals superb. You have to remember this is a tramping adventure and you do walk a long way over three days - 19km the first day, but you are not carrying a heavy pack and so there is opportunity to really enjoy the scenery...

The lodge staff were welcoming, the lodges were extremely comfortable, food was excellent and the hot water promised was there in abundance. Dion, the jet boat driver, did his job with enthusiasm...

From the booking process, to the pre-departure information on what to take, to the entertaining drivers and lodge hosts everything was superb. But the highlight of this trip and the thing that sets it apart was the quality of our guides Graham and Brooke. Graham, as the lead guide, shared his enormous knowledge of the flora and fauna and told... More

My wife and I enjoyed everything about this experience. The guides ,Graeme and Matt, the lodge hosts, the jet boat driver, Dion, all did their jobs to a very high standard ,with humour, passion and an interest in their clients. The fellow trampers were all friendly interesting people and so great to be with.

Everything, including the weather, fell into place for this wonderful experience. Organisation was quietly efficient, friendly and keen to make the whole 3 days memorable. Guides were informative without being boring, or too much information. Overseas guests seemed to really catch on to the significance of the region.Helicopter ride was a stand-out for our teenager! And us "mature" ones too.
