Overview:

At 1pm daily we depart Gagudju Lodge Cooinda, Kakadu National Park, (near Yellow Waters) in our open-sided safari vehicle. We drive a short distance to the Kakadu Buffalo Farm reserve, a wildlife rich area of 170 km. sq. that only this tour has exclusive access to visit. Our bush aboriginal guide will then join us and from there we commence our real adventure. Our aboriginal guide is searching for wildlife, bush foods of plants and animals, useful plants for making baskets, mats and shelter and we are invited to join her as we safari through the wilderness. We have many breaks for hands-on activities and photos. Under the guidance of our bush-wise aboriginal guide we hunt and gather food, experience various bush medicines, and countless other authentic activities. It is possible to view many wildlife species on this safari with the highlight being an amazing wetland called Gindjala (Goose Camp) where from roughly July to September you may watch one of the largest bird gatherings in the Australia. At sunset, we make a camp fire at a remote location/wildlife viewing point and our aboriginal guide prepares bush foods (you're welcome to assist) using traditional aboriginal cooking methods. We then enjoy billy tea, fresh hot damper, bush foods and relax to an unforgettable Kakadu sunset of wildlife and remote wilderness.

The homeward trip may yield some wildlife surprises and some good stories. We return to Cooinda about 8.15 pm.

It is truly one of Austalia's few 'Real' Safaris.
