My husband and I were eager to visit KI but had a hard time figuring out how to arrange a one day visit from our “home” base of Adelaide. Owner Kylie assisted us with the entire round trip: bus, ferry, pick up from the ferry terminal, and then the trip back. She was very pleasant despite my credit card being a bit glitchy.
Upon arrival we were picked up by Nikki. She is extraordinary. She knows so much about wildlife, the vegetation, history, culture, and geology. She asked if we wanted to have a bag lunch rather than stop at a restaurant. What a great idea! (We didn’t come to KI to dine and wine.) She provided tasty sandwiches, refreshing drinks, and apples: just perfect!
Most importantly we circumnavigated the island and saw sea lions, koalas, lizards, kangaroos, wallabies, echidna, many different birds, pelicans, and probably a few more… in the wild.
We also visited spectacularly beautiful venues: outlooks, beaches, woods, coastal areas. Several were tucked away and available only with this company.
We loved Nikki’s warmth, enthusiasm for the animals, her love of and loyalty to KI, and desire to share her knowledge with us.
We were so happy to have this once-in-a-lifetime experience with Kangaroo Island Trails.
