My husband and I traveled to Davidson's with our family (4 grandparents and 2 children) and had an amazing time. The scenery was absolutely stunning. We were in awe of the land, the eco-system, the bird life, the crocodiles, and wild life in general. The rock art was unbelievable - both in beauty and history. Our guide was extremely knowledgable... More

I'm sitting in the comfortable lounge of the lodge, listening to whistling kites, cockatoos, kookaburras, a gentle breeze in the trees. Just had a lovely breakfast with new friends, whom I first met on the sunset cruise last night. I was pleased to hear the dingo song early this morning - somehow I never want to sleep in here, there's... More

Four of us had a 45 minute flight from Darwin to land in the beautifully remote location at Mount Borradaile. Our USA friends could not get over the remoteness. For the next 3 days we experienced the Australian outback as never before. The knowledgeable staff led by Clare were unbelievably competent in every way. From the quality 20 cabins on... More

Our stay at Davidson's was our first and it was an amazing experience. The location is remote and offers much more than a place to stay while exploring Arnhemland. From the moment we flew into the airstrip the guides were very helpful. The guides (especially Lachlan in our case) really make the visit something to remember for a long time.... More

Wow. What amazing place to stay. Beautiful cabins in the middle of nowhere. But there are beautiful swimming holes, an incredible billabong TEAMING with wildlife, lots of crocs and birds, a real treat. And the rock art is a real treat. If you can do it this is a must see part of the Northern Territory.

Dazzling. Unique. Magic. Savage and sublime. Thios is Mother Nature with her hair down. Crocs galore, whistling ducks and magpie geese come in clouds, jabirus, brolgas, white breasted sea eagles, etc etc. The wetlands of Arnhemland are one of the world's special places and Davidson's Safari Lodge is its viewing platform. But while the wildlife is phenomenal, the rock art... More

My wife and I stayed three nights in this very special part of Australia. We loved every second of it. We needed three full days to tackle the variety of adventures available, which included exploring the landscape, rock art, billabongs, fishing, swimming and socialising with other guests and staff.

Interesting reading all the earlier reviews as much is noted of Max and his impact. Clearly missing now. Clare and her guides do a terrific job with all the tours and meeting all the guests needs. Cannot fault them and they and the tours made the visit worthwhile. However the food was average at best (somehow roast meals don't fit... More

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately this guest was obviously expecting a 5 star upmarket resort, when we strive to only advertise as a 4 star safari lodge in a very remote area. I would also like to mention that Clare is upper management and has been with the company for the past 7 years. We are all glad you... More
