Red Centre and Northern Territory
Lords Kakadu & Arnhemland Safaris

This is camping at its very best. Explore the vast Australian outback by day, and sleep beneath the stars in your private camp by night.

Set in the heart of Kakadu National Park, this exclusive camp is solar-powered and its tents are critter-free, allowing you to immerse yourself in the surrounding wilderness in comfort. Leave the crowds behind and discover what makes this one of the world’s great national parks. 

Facilities & Activities

The tours are the main draw here – and for good reason. The team has decades of experience in the area and has forged fantastic relationships with the Aboriginal communities. The result is a privileged insight into these communities and access to the most culturally significant sites in this part of Australia. 

You might choose a four-day active safari through Kakadu, which includes hill walking, an airboat adventure and a river cruise. Starting from your Darwin accommodation, you’ll stop at Fogg Dam Reserve with its abundance of water birds and other animals. At the Mary River Wetlands, a thrilling 45-minute airboat safari awaits – you’ll float above the vast floodplains and have close encounters with crocodiles and birds. Once inside the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, you’ll cruise the Yellow Water, a haven for birds, buffalo and saltwater crocs.   

Other tour options include land tours ranging from three to five days and an uber-luxurious six-day trip that’s packed with waterfalls, sub-monsoon rainforests with crystal-clear plunge pools and Top End’s famous sunsets.

Tours are for private groups, so you won’t be sharing with others. Each 4WD vehicle seats up to seven guests, though six is more comfortable.

Dining

Breakfast, lunches and dinners are included whilst on the tour, and meals will cater for your dietary requirements, such as gluten-free, vegetarian, and food allergies. Tasting kangaroo, emu and crocodile is entirely optional! 

You’ll be eating in a private, solar-powered dining structure. Watch as your guide prepares delicious meals over an open fireplace while you kick back beside the campfire and enjoy the scenery with a refreshing drink and hors d’oeuvres. 

Rooms

Glamping meets the Australian outback here. You’ll be staying in a permanent private campsite with tents furnished with proper beds. Each room features a raised floor and twin beds with sheets and pillows. The tents have been designed to keep bugs out – so you can sleep soundly safe in the knowledge that no critters will be getting in. Everything – including the lights and fan in your tent – is operated by solar power. 

Please note that although you will have a private guide and vehicle, up to 3 groups can be staying in camp at the same time, which has 7 tents in total.

They are among the country’s leading and most innovative ecotourism products that operate with minimal impact on the environment. Sustainable efforts include the use of solar power throughout the private camp and employing local Aboriginal people. 

They have spent decades working closely with local Aboriginal clans and share a mutual respect with the local indigenous people and their relationship with the land. Owner, Sab Lord, was raised on a station that is now part of World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, with his father employing Aboriginal families who taught him their indigenous language and involved him in traditional ceremonies. His ongoing relationships and understanding of their culture has earned him the rare permission to share culturally significant sites and stories such ast Injalak Hill, an area is documented as having some of the best rock art examples in Australia. 

Location

The private camp is located in the heart of Kakadu National Park, a short drive from Yellow Water Billabong, a drive of 3 – 4 hours from Darwin. However your bespoke tour will include transport to and from your accommodation in the City.
