My wife and I and our 16 year old daughter and 10 year old son booked a 4 day guided culinary camping tour of the Western Macdonnell Ranges National Park with Aborigine gourmet chef Bob Penuka.
Bob picked us up at Alice Springs airport in a comfy Land Cruiser towing a trailer. We drove to a reserved campsite 120 km away at Ormiston Gorge.
Our 10 year old son Levi wrote this about our experience:
"Bob really made our time in the Outback worth the trip alone. He showed us all of the unique flora and fauna that call central Australia home, and seemed to know the answer to every question we had, whether it was about the history of his indigenous people, animals (from the biggest Euro to the smallest tadpole), plants, cooking, history, or anything else that you could possibly think of. With loads of experience and knowledge to share, as well as amazing cooking skills, he made every hike or even stroll through the brush an exciting adventure. Bob was very knowledgeable about the land which we all stood on and never failed to add the unique, first-hand perspective that only a lifetime in Australia could teach anyone to appreciate to any political discussion. Extremely accommodating, Bob would always ask and consider how everyone felt before taking a hike or while planning an excursion, and his amazing cooking skills coupled with exotic foods like emu or kangaroo would make every meal worth looking forward to. He was really just as great as any tour guide gets, and a very interesting, friendly, accommodating, humorous, skilled, and knowledgeable person."
