Wildlife, people and landscapes can together build a connection with the Australian bush that is extraordinarily powerful & long-lasting. When your family joins one of our dedicated departures designed exclusively for families, one child travels free. That’s a savings of $2,770 per family!
Don’t know your Western Grey from your Common Wallaroo, your Fat-Tailed Dunnart from your Western Quoll? Well, things are about to change!
At Arkaba we have 60,000 acres of private conservancy for your family to share quality time in the beautiful surrounds of nature and wildlife. There’s no better way to take in the sights and sounds of the outback than by exploring on foot – tracking wildlife using their habits and behavioural cues, learning stories of early pioneers and one of Australia’s oldest landscapes.
Meet your Rex Regional Express flight ZL4412 departing Adelaide 9:10am, arriving Port Augusta 10:05am, where you will be met by your Arkaba field guide for a road transfer through the Flinders Ranges to Arkaba. Set off on foot for 7km through Arkaba wilderness to Black’s Gap signature swag camp.
Stretch out in one of the world’s oldest landscapes, learn about Arkaba’s 500-million-year journey and how we are protecting and allowing natural processes to reassert themselves in this country. We cover 14km over the course of the day with plenty of rest stops for breathing in, wondering & discovering nature along the way.
Depart Elder camp on a safari drive adventure scaling Arkaba’s ridge tops for birds eye views, ending up at Arkaba Homestead in good time for lunch. This afternoon, immerse yourself in indigenous stories through the eyes of a local Adnyamathanha elder.
Depart Arkaba Homestead after breakfast at 8:30am for a scenic drive through gorgeous outback towns, with lunch and entry into Mintaro Maze to stretch the legs on the way. Arrive Adelaide airport or hotel to meet onward flights departing from 6pm.
We understand getting the family together and away on holidays can be a work of art and we welcome any questions you have. If you would like to speak to someone who has experienced Arkaba first hand, please call (02) 9571 6399 to speak with a Wild Bush Luxury Specialist or email us today.
