We stayed 2 nights as part of a tour and were really looking forward to the break but it was spoilt by the total lack of needs of travelers in our beautiful country. The most stunning pool but no shade sails. Management are you aware of the dangers of the sun especially on children. We stayed in the tents which... More

Spent 3 nights in one of the tents. Staff were friendly on arrival although could not explain the benefits of the different tour options as they were new to the lodge. Tent was brilliant! Lovely outlook and good facilities. Best sleep I have had in a long time. Meals were good and staff helpful and understanding when there was an... More

A great place to reconnect with our environment - our cabin was very comfortable and well presented. The staff were an interesting mixture of International travellers and Australians - always friendly and helpful. The guides on our tours were excellent, personable and accommodating. Food was excellent, apart from a minor hiccup with misunderstanding of drink order, a lemon lime and... More

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.

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.

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

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.
