Wildlife everywhere, Buffalo, Crocs, Birds, Wild Boar... Chase and Josh were really professional, fun and best of all extremely knowledgable about the environment we were in. Having a nature guide on the already great airboat experience was absolutely priceless. I'd go back just for that!

We stayed here 2 nights as a break in the middle of our 5 day tent camping in Kakadu & Litchfield. As there was 3 of us, we stayed in the tent accommodation (comfortably fits 2 adults & 2 children). The accommodation was excellent (although not AC). The 3 course meal that came with our package was also excellent &... More

We are a family of 5-we all loved the trip into the wetlands on this airboat. What a unique experience!! Seeing all the birds and many other wildlife up close with the airboat. Josh was fantastic, knowledgeable of the area and brings the tour to life with his personality!!

Great setting and tours from Wildman. The location is near enough to day trip into Kakadu and out again. Airboat with Chase was the highlight of our NT tour (although the most expensive too). Lovely pool to swim in and individual cabins make you feel like you are in the wilderness but without camping. Suitable for our teenage kids who... More

The "camping tent" was fabulous, unparalleled comfort and very peaceful. Great service from the person who met us, through to the waiter and chef. The restaurant food was brilliant, followed by star gazing on the walk back to the tent. The airboat safari--- just do it. It is stunning, the plant and animal life was fantastic. The air was clear... More

Our family went with Josh on the morning airboat trip from the Wildman Lodge. We saw lots of wild life including a dingo walking in front of the boat. Amazing scenes of hundreds of birds. The scenery was incredible and was a highlight of our trip in Northern Territory. This trip is best taken in the morning when the temperature... More

Lets start out by firstly acknowledging that you are staying in a National Park in the Northern Territory and not a 5 star hotel in a major city. My wife and I have stayed in everything from a palace to a tent in our travels and I can say without a word of a lie that next time we comeback... More

If you are expecting a sophisticated, quiet holiday enjoying the beautiful wildlife of the outback in peaceful surroundings- this is definitely not the place for you!! Wildman has 10 relatively well appointed 2 person units and 14 eco tents which sleep up to six people including young children. Thats 20 peopel paying a high price and up to 84 in... More

This is a great base from which to experience Kakadu. The lodge can arrange tours by plane, boat or car and all the guides we had were very knowledgeable and informative. The bird life is astonishing and you are also guaranteed to see lots of crocs, both estuarine and freshwater, in the area. There is direct access to the local... More

Located in a gorgeous setting amongst termite mounds and rosella bushes and with its own billabong, this is a nature lover's paradise. Just walking around the property, there's so many wallabies, jabiru, different types of kingfisher and even dingoes. Buffalo footprints and fresh spore abound, but sadly didn't personally see any of those critters. The tours are amazing, offering even... More
