The ride to the lodge from the airport left us wondering what we had gotten ourselves into, but upon our arrival our driver\guide Richard took us to the waters edge and immediatly pointed out a crock to us.

The Lodge had a perfect set up to relax, the included 3 course meal was excellent and the Safari Tent was spacious and well appointed. Excellent Pool and bar set up to relax after a hard days driving. The facilities are well maintained and new unlike some other facilities in the day trip range of Darwin.

The remoteness, yet ease of access by self-drive from Darwin; the friendliness of the welcome; the luxury of the cabin and the excellence of the food! Those elements together with the excursions, all combined to make this more than live up to my expectations.
