Habitats are great. Food is very nice and staff very friendly. That said the best is of course the situation in the wilderness. Wallabies, birds, crocodiles, water buffalos. The local guide also is very nice to follow and he ha the right eye to catch the hidden wilderness behind the billabong water lillies. Thanks !

Stayed here for three nights in early November. What an experience! Despite it being the end of the season, the staff could not be more attentive. Stayed in a tent and expected to be too warm - no way. The fan kept the tent cool and we preferred it to the smaller, air-conditioned cabins. The food was out of this... More

Great location, friendly and helpful staff who looked after us really well. Excellent airboat tour on the nearby billabong. Also enjoyed a fantastic tour to Ubhirr with the colourful and knowledgeable Kym. Great food, lovely rooms. Thoroughly recommended.

We visited the lodge in October 2013 for a 3 night stay and had an amazing time. In hindsight we would have loved to cut our time short in Darwin and stayed another couple of days at the Lodge. The accommodation was great – the Habitat cabins were comfortable, clean and the deck chairs were a great place to take... More

This was a surprise for my wife's birthday and was every bit a success as I'd hoped it would be. About 2 hours drive from Darwin, seemingly in the middle of nowhere is this tropical outback idyll. It is a very special place. We were privileged to be sharing the location with all manner of wild animals, but all in... More

We were part of a 2 family group vacation and we loved it. Don't expect the Hyatt, but it offers so much more... closeness to nature, quiet starry nights, beautiful food and great staff. We were in the tents, and whilst initially we had hoped to book the cabins, we were unable to due to having 2 children, but in... More

Basic, rustic, charming and luxurious, how can all four exist? Two types of accommodation on offer, habitat cabins and Safari tents. Both are well laid out, spacious and comfortable. The lodge depends on the beauty of the wetlands and wildlife. Dependant on time of year both are in abundance. The food is good. The attention to detail well thought out... More

Wildman Wilderness Lodge is a treat for the soul. We stayed in a family tent, if you can classify such luxury as 'tent'. The lodge includes a high standard bathroom, great quality beds, a separate 'room' with a bunk bed for the kids and all the amenities that you'll find in a 5-star hotel. The staff is extremely helfpful and... More
