We (two Sydney families with four adults and three tweens) have just returned from the most amazing four-day/three-night tour with our guide Dean in Kakadu and Arnhem Land. Crocs, wetland scenery, bird-watching, art, Aboriginal guides, didgeridoos, sunsets, swimming - this tour was everything we could have dreamed of and more. Dean has ten years of experience in the area and is a wealth of knowledge about the land, the wildlife, and the people. He and Sab (whom we also had the pleasure of meeting) have strong connections with the Aboriginal community and are very highly regarded in the industry. Dean has a great sense of humour and was extremely patient with our kids. He is the best guide I have ever met. He also didn’t miss a beat with my blind husband, guiding him along some tricky paths with ease. The private camp at Kakadu is outstanding. Shelly was like an old friend and looked after our every need while Dean cooked up delicious meals which we enjoyed in the dining tent. Speaking of tents, our accommodation at both sites was superb. Bamurru, our home for the final night, defies description and must be experienced to be believed. It is truly bucket list worthy. I cannot recommend Lords Safaris highly enough. It was a big financial commitment for us, but it was worth every cent. Save yourself some valuable research time and book a tour with Lords right now. (You can thank me later!)

We have not long returned from a 5 day/4 night trip to Kakadu and Arnhemland. We stretched ourselves financially to do this part of our Australia trip, but we had a very personal and considerate guide in Sab who has a long personal history in the area and is very well connected including with local indigenous communities. We had 2 nights at his exclusive cap in Kakadu and 2 at Davidson's in Arnhemland with Sab guiding throughout. Pace was fairly gentle and unhurried, which worked well for us after a previous 10 days of very full on travelling. We saw some outstanding aboriginal rock art and had wonderful days in the boat in the wetlands of Arnhemland getting up close to the crocs and birdlife. A great experience.

We went on a 3 day tour last week which was excellent. We were safely guided to some very interesting parts of Kakadu and Arnhem Land that we wouldn’t have accessed without their expert help. Dean, Sab and Shelly really go out of their way to ensure you go away with some great memories.

We have just returned from a 5 day, 4 night all inclusive trip[ with Lord's Safaris. The cost was top dollar but as usual you get what you pay for and we could not fault the experience. Tour guide Dean certainly knew his way around Arnhemland and Kakadu. He has a great knowledge of the indigenous people as well as plants and wildlife from the region. Our small tour group of 4 people certainly benefited from his 10 years with Lords and a total of 20 years guiding in the area. Two nights in Arnhemland at Davidsons Safaris were also part of the great experience.

My wife and I had a truly excellent outback safari and photography tour with Sab across 5 days/4 nights. The first 2-1/2 days were in and around Kakadu National Park based out of Sab's camp with the remainder of the time in the Davidson's Arhemland camp area. Sab's knowledge and experience in wildlife viewing and identification is extensive! Whether spotting elusive saltwater and freshwater crocodiles (people were crossing a small wooden bridge over a small, slow-moving 3-foot wide stream to get to a road and were not seeing a 12-foot saltwater crocodile just below -- Sab saw it) or spotting fast-moving snakes, lizards, and birds while driving down the road, he knows how and where to spot the local wildlife. He also knows what wildlife to avoid. Sab adapts quickly to changing conditions he has no control over. When late rains came the beginning of May, he modified our itinerary to adapt for changing water level conditions affecting his 4WD vehicle crossings. It was the start of the dry season when, after a full day of wildlife viewing our first day, an unexpected (though closely monitored) 3-hour downpour occurred at his camp at dinner. Sab continued cooking over an open fire as if nothing happened. We still don't know how he managed to put together a multi-course meal of pork ribs and salad as a starter, steak and veggies, and dessert over an open fire during a cloudburst of this magnitude as if it were a normal day at the office !! And that rainstorm speaks to the quality of his campsite. We experienced only dry conditions in our camp hut with the unexpected rain. No impact to us. The beds in his huts were the best of our trip even compared to hotels, and we got the best night's sleep there. (The rest of our safari had only perfect weather.) Sab takes advantage of local tours and attractions to maximize your experience in the Northern Territory outback. Air boat ride, sunset billabong cruise, swimming in the Gumlom Falls pools, multiple Aboriginal art sites (several off the beaten tourist path, with permission), and Davidson Arhemland camp boating with extensive billabong bird and croc watching and fishing. We lost count of the number of saltwater and freshwater crocodiles we saw. We could not have asked for a better guide than Sab -- he takes care of his clients. Great memories, and we literally brought 4,500+ photos (and videos) home from this safari and photography tour in Australia !!! The last thing Sab did on the afternoon back to our hotel was to show me a trusted Darwin shop where I could buy a good Australian hat -- I went back the next morning and got that hat and a few other treasured items. If Sab were ever to come to the U.S., we would be honored to have him stop by and show him the sights.
