About Daintree Safaris
Daintree Safaris and Nicholas Fox conduct luxury, four wheel drive day tours from Port Douglas to the oldest rain forest on Earth. We carry a maximum of just six guests per day, travelling exclusively in the comfort of a spacious, late model Toyota 200 series Land Cruiser, featuring individual air conditioning and equal legroom throughout. We’ll cross The Daintree River by cable ferry on our way to the Jindalba board-walks. Enjoy a morning tea of home-made muffins and locally grown tea or freshly ground plunger coffee. See two World Heritage sites meet as the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef touch at Cape Tribulation's beach. Take advantage of a true locals knowledge and enjoy our secret, sparkling swimming hole. Savour frosty, tropical delights at The Daintree Ice Cream Company while you stroll through their beautiful gardens. Then, stop for a photo, at the scenic Alexandra Lookout. Lunch, well sit back relax and dine, a la carte, in any weather at The Daintree Tea House Restaurant. Enjoy a choice of Chicken, Beef, Vegetarian and allergy free meals or perhaps you'd like to try our tropical speciality, Barramundi. All dishes are served with salad, chips, fresh bread and a large array of tropical fruit. Your host will talk you through all the exotic locally grown delicacies as you enjoy your meal. Next we take you to The Daintree River Cruise Centre for a one hour guided wild life spotting cruise on the Daintree River. Perhaps we'll spot one of our giant Saltwater Crocodiles. With World Heritage Accreditation and over twenty year’s local experience, Daintree Safaris knows how to show you the best of our beautiful region in comfort and style.

My husband and I were fortunate to spend the day touring this magical place with guide Nicholas. Nicholas experience, kindness, passion and knowledge made this the most memorable day of our trip. We highly recommend this tour to anyone. Morning tea, lunch and the daintree icecream were all as wonderful as were the settings. The boat trip was fantastic and we saw a huge male croc called scare face and a few juveniles. Thanks again Nicholas for a fantastic day.

If you take one tour out of Port Douglas, take this one. Nicholas Fox is an experienced and knowledgeable guide. Having taken tours around the world, his tour rates in my top category. It is a small group tour so you don't get lost in the crowd. You travel in a 4 wheel drive so you can handle the conditions and will not have the tour cancelled because of the weather. You leave at the right time, avoiding the crowds and having the best chance of seeing some unique wildlife. Nicholas' experience means that you will see things on your rainforest walks that you would otherwise miss. His engaging personality and willingness to answer any question just enhances the experience. Using some of the Daintree's unique ingredients, the lunch is excellent and certainly not the usual tourist fare.

Nicholas was a wealth of knowledge. Showed us things we would never have known to look at. Beautiful home baked muffins for morning tea and sumptuous lunch at Daintree Tea house. A great swim in a private watering hole

Had an awesome day with Nicholas! We were very grateful to be the only two on the tour so could ask Nic as many questions (in which he answered ALL in depth) as we wanted. We finished the day feeling as though we had well and truely done the Daintree- we visited such a variety of sites and had the perfect balance of informative guided time as well as time to soak in the surroundings. Nic went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves. I highly recommend this tour if you are visiting the Daintree from Port Douglas - it is extremely good value for money as there is absolutely no way we could have visited that many sites, learnt as much as we did and enjoyed the Daintree in such capable hands any other way. Thank you Daintree Safaris for an incredible day!

My mum and I were unsure about which Daintree forest tour to do as there are so many companies to choose from. We chose this one as it seemed small and we generally like smaller tour groups. On arrival we found out that nichcolas and his wife were the first of the Daintree tours and have been operating them for so many years. Nicholas was a fantastic friendly face, very professional and was like an encyclopaedia of knowledge and he could answer any one of our questions. We visited so many places today, and everything was for the perfect amount of time and didn’t feel rushed. In comparison to lunch I have received on other tours, this was also amazing. The morning tea was beautiful and fresh and his wife’s muffins were delicious. the lunch was a full on big meal from a local restaurant with incredible vibes. Thank you so much, we will tell our friends about this!
