If you’re traveling in Australia and want to spend time in the outback, this is a great way to do it. I’ve been on outback tours in the past (Red Centre and Northern Territory), and this was by far the best experience. Traveling with Kimberly adventure Tours was the highlight of our stay in Australia.
We considered several tour companies, but Tim (owner) was the most helpful in coordinating a tour that would work for us. Ultimately, we decided on a private charter since we had two families traveling with kids (4 adults and 4 children). We couldn’t believe what a great job they did in catering to our needs – everything from the itinerary to the snacks and meals were planned with our kids in mind.
Our guide, Shane, was exceptional and clearly loves what he does. He was not only knowledgeable about the areas we visited (knows a lot about the aboriginal culture), but he could take us places and show us things that may be omitted with some of the other tour companies. This is partly because the 4WD truck and gear they have makes it possible to get off the beaten path. In fact, at one point we had to stop to pull another vehicle out of a heavily rutted dirt road. Overall, the experience of camping in the bush - especially sleeping under the stars in swags by the fire, was an experience my family will never forget.
