Overview
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.
Highlights
  • Experience the best of the Top End on a 5-day 4WD camping tour from Darwin
  • Travel with a guide to explore the region’s natural wonders with ease and in safety
  • Visit three national parks, take a crocodile cruise, go kayaking, and bathe in waterfalls
  • Four campsite stays, meals, and return 4WD transport included

Wayoutback Australian Safaris appear very good on paper, but do not deliver on experience. They use the words "private and permanent campsites", "comfortable and permanent tents"; but a roped off area, with a small sign stating "Private Campsite. Do not enter" at the rear of a

Great trip. Darren our guide was very knowledgeable about aboriginal culture, fauna, flora, history etc . We were able to learn much more and see much more than if we had of travelled by ourselves. The benefit of local knowledge cannot be overstated. Wayoutback and in particular

What great review!! Our 5 day tour really is the best way to see all the highlights of the Top End and it's great to hear that it was suited to your large and varied group. I'm glad you were so well looked after by Sarah, she works hard to make sure her groups are taken care of and have a great time on tour and I know she will appreciate you taking the time to acknowledge her efforts. Thanks again for sharing P.s great tip about the pool noodles!!

What a fantastic review, this makes me want to go out on tour!! It's always such a pleasure to hear feedback like yours, it sounds like you really made the most of your experience which we love to see. Darren works very hard to share his passion and knowledge of the Top End with his groups and I know he will appreciate you taking the time to recognise his efforts. Also damper is a matter of pride among tour guides so your feedback on this will go a long way! Thanks again for sharing and hopefully we will see you on tour again some time

Dear Maralefils, Thank you for sharing your very informative review, despite our efforts it can still be difficult to clearly convey all of the tour information and I know other travelers will appreciate the details you have shared. I'm very pleased to hear that you found the tour so enjoyable. I also enjoy the Bowali Visitor Centre, like many things in the territory it exceeds expectations. You are correct in saying the itinerary is quite busy however we aim to make the most of the time available as for most passengers this will be a once in a lifetime visit. I hope that it did not take away from your overall enjoyment of the experience. Thank you again for sharing and I hope you have enjoyed the remainder of your travels.
