Everything about our 4 day trip to the Gawler Ranges was fantastic. Weather conditions great albeit a bit hot at 49c. We were picked up by Rosie from Wudinna Hotel to visit a rock giving fantastic 360 view and then to the camp where we were warmly welcomed by Geoff,the owner. The tents were very well equipped having been designed by Rosie and built by Geoff from,in the main,reclaimed materials. Geoff, Rosie and Dave are absolutely passionate about the wildlife,the geology and take every opportunity to share their knowledge with you. We saw on the trip Red and Western Grey kangaroos, Rock wallaby and numerous birds and reptiles including wedge tailed eagles. On our final day we went to Baird Bay to swim with the sea lions and dolphins. A not to be missed experience.Geoff's cooking and salads are really great.Nothing is too much trouble for Geoff and his staff which made our trip quite unique and fabulous.

A fabulous trip in the outback! The elevated tents were decorated with wildlife screen prints done by guide Rosie Woodford. The food was unbelievable. The scenery was like a different planet, so sparse with gorgeous rocky outcroppings. The animals were the highlight, kangaroos, galah cockatoos, ring necked parrots, emus all came to camp at sunset. Stars were practically on the ground with us and were able to see rings of Saturn through the telescope. Treks to salt lake, ochre pits, organ pipe formations, swimming with sea lions. And the hosts, Dave, Rosie and Geoff were fabulous. Highly recommend

Kangaluna Camp Safari is a fabulous adventure for those who want to see the outback in all its raw beauty. Geoff, Rosie and David gave us an experience my husband and I will never forget. The accommodations were intriguing as well as comfortable and the food was gourmet. If you want to see kangaroos, koalas and emus up close and personal, this is the way to do it.

Gawler Ranges are in remote South Australia. The landscape is a dramatic mix of ancient hills, granite rocks, red earth roads, sand dunes, mid size eucalyptus and shimmering bushes. You drive there through vast plains of wheat crops and rural service towns which add to the experience. The salt bed of Lake Gairdner is a highlight. Kangaroos and emus abound. The Safari company offers charming tents with en-suites in a supremely quiet spot. Geoff the owner is a generous host with deep local knowledge. The activities do involve a fair amount of driving but hikes are also an option. The great food and ambience epitomise Australian outback hospitality. A must see for those seeking a special outback adventure.

'I had a farm in Africa' (Out of Africa). This is the first phrase that came to our minds when we arrived at the camp which is in the middle of the outback.

It is a little haven where you will feel disconnected from time and space. You are surrounded by animals from dawn to dusk. Just at the camp, you get to see parrots, emeus, kangaroos. And at night, we even went scorpion hunting with Geoff and our guide Rosie because if you use a black light, scorpions appear luminescent. It is also the place where we saw the most beautiful sky of our lives. It is so clear, you get to see the Milky Way and the Magellan cloud. You can just remain awed by such a magnificent sight of the stars. And with Geoff's telescope, we were able to get a closer look at the Moon, Jupiter and Saturn.

The tents are incredibly welcoming and well furnished thanks to the decorative and artistic skills of Rosie. The food is simply excellent-Geoff has amazing cooking skills-and you eat plenty.

We booked a four-day Outback to the Sea private tour and wish we could have stayed longer. We loved exploring the outback with our guide Rosie who told us a lot about the geological formations and the animals. We loved petting baby kangaroos that had been rescued by a friend of hers and swimming with sea lions. Even just wandering through the roads of the outback is an unforgettable experience.

We will also never forget Geoff and Rosie with whom we spent those 4 days. We had a marvellous time thanks to you.
