This is an amazing place - what a fantastic experience. The lodges are good but basic, the swimming pool a welcome relief from the heat and great for the kids. The food was great, and although I'm normally put off by any hint of communal living, the shared meal arrangements worked well. They're trying hard to find a balance between... More

We stayed for 2 nights. It's a very clean and nice campground with a reasonable price. The owners are nice and friendly people with a positive attitude. Good showers. Nice river view. Very quiet and peaceful place.

We had the most wonderful experience at Davidson's safari lodge. Absolutely amazing to be so close to nature and to see this amazing rock art painted as early as 40 000 years ago and as late as 50 years ago. It really helped understating some of the aboriginal heritage of this country We went on two tours a day in... More

This is an outstanding experience: we felt quite privileged to have been part of it, if only for a short stay. With our two teenage daughters we were drawn into a very unusual place with its own sense of space and time. The staff shared their love of Davidson's naturally and directly; the Lodge's systems all worked quietly and sensibly... More

This is the closest experience I have had outside of Africa to being in a location like the Okavango. Davidson's is truly a unique facility. It has a first-rate staff from Ray the Manager to the guides to the chefs to all who work there. It is an amazing location with access to incredible birding, Aboriginal rock art, and incredibly...

We flew here to this tent camp to see the amazing rock art and were taken aback by the wonder of this area. The only way to see this part of the Aboriginal homeland is with a licensed guide who are the protectors of this area. They know this vast area in all its beauty and culture and have been... More

Owning a huge leasehold within Arnhemland, which is about 20 times the size of the leasehold, Davidson's is very special. Guests staying in only 20 cabins plus the staff are the only persons with access to this area. We visited in early winter in early June, a perfect time as the water levels are still fairly high but it is... More

We had an absolutely amazing 3 days Davidsons. The stunning location has the best of the Top End in one small area - rock formations, incredible rock art that is among the best anywhere, wetalands and wildlife - and excellent guides to show it. After a month of camping around the NT, the cabins were luxury and the food amazing.
