Our 3-day kakadu tour with TERRITORY EXPEDITIONS, booked through TRAVELWILD AUSTRALIA, couldn't have possibly been any better. Our guide, Heath (who also goes by Wilbo), is intelligent, responsible, organized, super knowledgeable (about the park, the flora and fauna and the indigenous culture and history), funny and caring. He drove the vehicle safely and took time to get to know each of the 16 guests personally. The sights were beautiful, the hikes were fun, the swimming holes were gorgeous (but freezing cold!!!), the views were spectacular and the wildlife was amazing. When Heath found out I was really interested in birds, he took time to help me spot them. The termite mounds, the bush fires, the super starry skies, the parrots, the sounds - this was the outback I have always dreamed of.
The campsites were super nice with pretty posh wash houses, including hot water! (though I preferred sleeping on swag at the first site to the bunks at the company's own site - the bunks were kind of uncomfortable - several of us had stiff backs in the morning). One tip: a sleeping bag was not necessary - it was warm all night, and this was the "cool period" - a pillow, however, is not provided, so bring your own if you need that. The food was great and there was plenty of it, so I'm not sure about a previous review to the contrary. OK, the tea towels weren't pristine and maybe the dishwashing procedure didn't get everything sparkling the way you would do at home, but this is, after all, a CAMPING trip and it really was the best one I've ever been on.
Interestingly, with all those positives mentioned above, the very best thing about our trip was the group dynamics. Somehow 16 people from all over the world came together and all got along great. Partly, this was due to Heath, who was pretty savvy about creating opportunities for us to interact right from the beginning. I hope I made some new friends. Would not only recommend this tour, but would do another one with Heath and Territory Expeditions if I ever am fortunate enough to come back to NT. Thanks so much for a super awesome time, dude, you totally rock!
