Delsie is the boss, but a perfect host. We did a half day tour with Napatana and had a great time. It was great to see how the local people live and...

We had a tremendous experience staying at Napatana Lodge. We were greeted at the airport and received a very kind welcome from all of the staff members.

Loved every moment of staying here! I only had a short 2 week stint doing volunteer physio work at the hospital but it was one that was very memorable. Rooms were very clean and all the staff put the time in to say g'day and share some hometown knowledge. Hope to travel that way again in the future :)
