Lost in the middle of nowhere, this lodge is just amazing! not to mention the wonderful welcoming from the hosts. All the staff is so friendly and careful. The sunset is beautiful and all the atmosphere is very special and exotic especially if you chose to sleep in one of their beautiful tents. Restaurant is all very nice. The airboat... More

these are my experiences; We chose this venue to give me a small (2night) but real experience in the NT outback. I can say it offered the most fantastic vista's of anywhere I have been on this earth, for this, I thank you. We decided to spend the extra on Wildman which we believed would offer something special.

We really enjoyed our three night stay at Wildman - the booking was quite tricky but once there, the stay was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the day trip to Kakadu and in particular Ubirr - the scenery was breath taking - made even better by our guide Leroy .. who was excellent and made everyone feel at home!.

Having spent a week and a half really getting out and about in Darwin, Litchfield and Kakadu, we really savoured our time at Wildman's. The photos don't do justice to the beauty of the place, or the pool. The safari tents are really fabulous, especially if you sleep with the front open so you can watch the sun rise from... More

Comfortable accommodation, friendly staff, well informed guides and well constructed tours, more animals and birds than we saw in Kakadu, high quality meals and reasonable bar prices. Quibbles were minor but one could have been significant. There was no briefing re the possible safety concern of poorly lit walkways with trip hazards of steps and gaps, nor any accompanying advice... More

Hi GreyJW, Thanks for the positive review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Wildman Wilderness Lodge. The lighting of the deck at night is something that we were aware of and have since added additional lighting to ensure guest safety and visibility. Hopefully this will help all future guests. Thanks again, Mel General Manager More

Had a great stay at Wildman in June 2014 for 4 nights. We stayed in one of the tents and loved it. They were well appointed, clean and the showers had lots of hot water as the mornings when we were there were quite cool. A special mention to Peta, Sarah, Alice and Tiffany for making our stay so much... More

I did enjoy my stay at Wildman Wilderness Lodge but it would have been a lot more satisfactory if not for the double standards and communication breakdown. Receptionists throughout the entire trip were just bad. I actually wrote them out in details but there were other departments and staff that salvaged the situation. Melissa the GM was great. She offered... More

Brilliant place before Kakadu. You'll have a special experience here. The meals were wonderful and take some time to just enjoy the pool too. You must do the hovercraft experience - it was such a wonderful excursion into places you can't imagine exist.

Hi RM47, Thanks for your great response. We are definitely in an amazing location here in the Mary River, and the Airboats are a perfect way to get right into the middle of the wetlands and experience their true beauty. Kind regards, Mel General Manager More

Not sure what happened to MPolo61 below but he obviously got off to a bad start. We had a wonderful time for a quick stopover. Had a tent , not a cabin but loved the feel of it. Very spacious and comfortable - only real problem was the lack of lighting but soon got used to it. We had the... More

We thought that this would be a luxury resort - after all, it was $745 a night (dinners & breakfasts and one tour included). I have to say, I've stayed where it was 5 times as luxurious and only twice the price. Good point 1. - we were sat down in the bar and given iced tea while we received... More

Hi MPolo61, You have addressed some concerns that have been taken very seriously and we have actively attempted to address all of them. Without going into individual detail about each point, some of the actions that we have taken have been; sourcing options for doors to the bathrooms, we have purchased additional pool furniture, and picnic lunches are being introduced....
