Kakadu is spectacular to look at, but immensely more interesting when on a Kakadu Air flight you receive a running commentary about the things you see, and many that you can't. On fixed wing aircraft flights the commentary is researched, recorded and delivered by long term Kakadu experts, via headsets.

Hi Gerard Definitely the chopper. While more expensive it allows you to get low and hover over the falls - just brilliant.
