Boats Through The Desert 12 Day Safari - BSC05

Experience a unique adventure safari exploring an inland desert river system. Our journey begins near the Birdsville Track on the Warburton River, travelling through some of the most inaccessible country in Australia between the Tirari and Simpson Desert. We eventually leave the cattle country behind as we near Lake Eyre. As we break out into the wide expanse of water, we encounter huge flocks of pelicans and other water birds. We finally reach the mouth of the Warburton River and the vast inland sea that is Lake Eyre where we set up camp on its shore. Massive recent rains in the catchment have produced abnormal flooding and excellent local rains, guarantee prolific wildflowers and animals life. For a short period of time this river creates spectacular beauty in one of the world's most desolate regions.

Operates: Subject to inland flooding conditions. Please check website for departure dates and confirm price.

Australian Wildlife 14 Day 4WD Safari - BSC20

Australian Wildlife 14 Day Safari has a specialist itinerary giving the opportunity to observe up to 30 native animal species in their natural habitat. Some species that are being rehabilitated after near extinction such as numbats, bettongs, bilbies and certain wallaby species. These have been captive bred, then released into very large sanctuaries cleared of all large predators. We concentrate on the birdlife, with an excellent opportunity of seeing some of Australia's rarest species like the Black-Eared Miner, the Red-Lored Whistler and of course the Mallee Fowl. Some National Parks are included in our visits, but much of this wildlife will be observed in private locations. Visitors will get the opportunity to meet the locals with overnight stays on sheep stations, and time on Kangaroo Island. Cruise the Murray River and visit the magnificent Flinders Ranges. Enjoy a boat trip with an overnight stay on the unique Coorong. Overnight accommodation is a mixture of camping and sheep station, homesteads and motels to shearers quarters and safari camps. Our camp cooking is second to none.

Operates: On demand with minimum 3 people. Price subject to confirmation.
