5-Day 4WD Camping Adventure Including Kakadu, Katherine Gorge and Litchfield National Parks

39 reviews
The natural wonders of Australia’s Top End lie south of Darwin, but exploring them independently requires a self-drive 4WD and serious planning. Bypass the hassle on a 5-day tour that covers Kakadu, Nitmiluk, and Litchfield National Parks; and packs each day with adventure and sights. Take a crocodile-spotting cruise, kayak, swim in waterfalls, see rock art, and overnight at private campsites. Guiding, 4WD transport, and meals make your experience complete.

Just what we had been looking for! Manuel is a rare survivor who conveys country and people through music, art and ways of living. Excellent!

We did the 2 hour cultural tour this morning and it was great! The hosts were very friendly and the aboriginal teacher was very enjoyable to listen to and understand his story. I would highly recommend this experience because you'll learn more in 2 hours than you will in months travelling around! Thank you Manuel for sharing your story and experiences!

Thank you for the 5 stars. Many people have said the same thing as you. Manuel's story is a wonderful way to learn what life was like for the aboriginal people before they started living in houses on communities or in town from a man who has actually lived that life.

Do yourself a real favour and book to go and experience this fantastic cultural experience. We had a wonderful afternoon and Manuel is a real legend. He’s super friendly and happy to be asked anything, loves to be in a photo with you and is just an extraordinary guy! Alex and his wife are terrific too - super organised and the whole outfit is really well run. We had a great afternoon and so glad we stayed in Katherine the extra day so we could do this. 10/10 for us!

Manuel is a national treasure! His life story is inspiring. I loved being able to paint and learn the stories behind how the paintings look too. We then were marveled with the fire building! And when we thought it couldn’t get any better we got to throw spears! Fantastic in every way! And the cutest wallabies to hold which delighted the children.

Thank you for the five stars. Yes, the fire is magic and we love seeing the reaction from everyone, once the fire is lit. Please let everyone know about our cultural experience.

My son and I went along with friends and it was really interesting. Manuel's life story is so fascinating and to incorporate the painting, fire starting and spear throwing into his story with why and how the did it, was great. We had such a lovely morning. The staff were so great and let the kids even pat the rescue wallaby. Highly recommend!
