Kangaroos, wallabies, penguins and much native wildlife is largely nocturnal and Luka of Kangaroo Hire a Guide is a great guide to show you their natural habitat areas and educate you about these mammals and the area. The nocturnal tours are also much more affordable than other types of island animal tours and is about 3 hours in length and well worth a journey in my opinion.

Me and my boyfriend spent a wonderful evening with Luca during the nocturnal trip in KI. Luca is a very nice, informative and experienced guide who enjoys what he does. You get to see wallabies, kangaroos, possums and penguins at places he discovered, and to enjoy a great adventure on his 4WD ride to see the night life on the island. We were lucky to have him as our private guide who provides pick-up at any accommodation in Kingscote and learned so much from his professional knowledge and life stories. We recommend to give KI Hire a Guide a call and to make your vacation in KI an enjoyable and amazing one with them. Visited on March 24, 2013. Sheila & Will.

We went on a nocturnal Tour yesterday with Luca and got to see lots of wallabies and possums as well as some kangaroos and little penguins. He gave us a lot of interesting facts about the wildlife and the island in general and it was great fun. The group consisted of just three people plus guide, which was a big plus. We highly recommend doing a tour with Luca when on Kangaroo Island.

We enjoyed a day-long tour on 2/26/13 with Luca. He rode along in our rented car, and gave us the inside look of this gem of an island. As a non-native of either the island or Australia, I valued his insight on both, as one who once saw it from the outside and now sees it while enveloped within. He kept the cadence of the tour slow enough to suck it all in, yet fast enough to value the limited time visitors have. Additionally, he was helpful in suggesting places to visit on our own during the remainder of our island stay. In short, for our purposes and the valued we received, Luca's guide service was money very well spent.

We were here in sept 2010, and had Luca show us around for a day. He was wonderful! He showed us around, and he really seemed to know a lot about the island. I would highly recommend him as we got a very personalized tour of the island!
