Walk in the wild & sleep under starry skies

ORIGINAL ARKABA WALK

Experience outback South Australia on a walking holiday & give back to wildlife while you roam.

WILD BUSH LUXURY EXPERIENCE AT A GLANCE

Traversing an ancient outback landscape within our private wildlife conservancy in South Australia’s Flinders Ranges, you’ll be immersed in the story of the land. 600 million years of geological history echo through the stratified layers of Wilpena Pound and the Elder Range, providing spectacular backdrops throughout the walk. The craggy sandstone bluffs and dry creek beds lined with River Red Gums are a quintessential Australian scene. You’ll traverse the basin of Wilpena Pound on day one, escorted by Arkaba’s field guides whose passion is sharing knowledge and connecting you with nature. 

If sleeping under the stars from our gloriously remote walking camps isn’t your thing, you might like to check out our lodge-based Arkaba Walk. Either way, by joining us on an outback foot safari you’re helping us protect Australia’s wildlife.  

WITH TRANSFERS FROM ADELAIDE

Meet and greet Adelaide airport or city located hotel before we hit the open road for our direct journey to the Flinders Ranges and your guided lay of the land safari experience on arrival at Arkaba.

SELF DRIVE ITINERARY

Make your way to Arkaba Homestead from 2pm for check-in to your Homestead Guestroom. There will be time to freshen up before your guided lay of the land safari experience.

Traverse the basin of Wilpena Pound before crossing onto Arkaba’s private wildlife conservancy and descend to Black’s Gap Signature Swag Camp. Glorious diversity meets big outback space and starry skies.

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.

Walk across varying terrain through Mallee and cypress forests before ascending the Red Range. Immerse yourself in our ancient Arkaba Creek line alive with glorious diversity enroute to Arkaba Homestead.

WITH TRANSFERS FROM ADELAIDE

Depart Arkaba for a scenic road transfer through charming outback South Australian towns with wine tasting and lunch in the Clare Valley wine country. Arrive Adelaide airport at 5pm to meet onward flights from 6pm.

SELF DRIVE ITINERARY

Morning at leisure to relax poolside, take an optional scenic flight over the ancient ramparts of Wilpena Pound or perhaps retreat into nature from Arkaba’s wildlife viewing hide or historic woolshed..
