We were lucky enough to have Bill show us some of the highlights of Kangaroo Island - we certainly fit in a lot over two days. Seal Bay and the Remarkables were the two highlights in terms of destinations, and the lunches between these were a very personal experience. Looking forward to visiting again in the future and seeing more... More

We elected to take a personalised 2 day tour of he Island, and were met by Grant at the airport off our morning flight from Adelaide and taken to many of the Island sights and in the evening dropped off at our B&B. The next morning Lyn collected us and we saw other aspects of the island including sheep shearing... More

Grant and Gavin were our incredibly knowledgeable guides over 3 days. I don't think there was a metre of Kangaroo Island we didn't explore. It's full on with a lot of driving but the lunches, fun and state of the art vehicles made it well and truly worth it.

6 people in a Range Rover Discovery and we saw a good part of the Island and lots of wildlife. We started at Seal Bay and got there before the crowds. We got very close to the sea lions and very cute they are. Undisturbed by our presence. Then a welcome coffee and biscuits at a stop before moving of... More

We (5 adults in the family) booked a one day tour of KI island, flying out from Adelaide and back on that day. A wonderful experience. Notwithstanding the brief time on KI we saw an amazing amount of key sites, wonderful scenery and many animals. We had our own very comfortable vehicle which can take 6 passengers and we were...

My sister and I booked 3 days of private tours with KI Wilderness Tours. We had two different guides, both who live on KI and obviously have great affection for the place and the animals that live there. We were very interested in seeing as much wildlife (including birdlife) as possible, and our guides brought us to several spots that... More

We had booked a 3day tour which covered almost all of the island and had the same guide (Gavin) on days 1 & 3 who was brilliant with only 4 of us in the Discovery on each of those days. His knowledge was really extensive and over the 2 days managed to find us all the wildlife in the wild.... More

We spent four days on KI as the start to our Australia vacation. The attraction of KI was the wildlife and scenery which we had read about - and boy did it live up to that! If you want to see koala's and kangaroo's in their natural habitat, to see sea lions, seals, echidnas, iguanas, wedge tail eagles, parrots, cockatoos... More
