Casual gear is a must. You will need minimal changes of clothing.

"We had a fantastic trip & commend you on your organisation.  Everything went very smoothly.  Most especially we want to thank Luke & Genevieve. 

They were absolutely the best & made our trip so enjoyable. 

Nothing was ever a problem & our comfort & enjoyment was their priority.  Luke was very informative & explained everything so clearly, and Genevieve was our “mother hen” making sure we were all well fed & cared for.  They are both an asset to your business."

"Have just returned from an excellent 11 day camping trip to Cape York, plus extra day on Horn Island.  All aspects more than met our expectations.  Each day was carefully planned and run, ensuring we were well cared for.  The camping equipment was good and every day brought positive surprises.   Our driver Luke enthusiastically shared his detailed knowledge of the history, landscape and wildlife;  Genevieve ensured we ate well and both were so happy and personable throughout that it was a delight to travel with them."

"Helen and I want to convey our thanks to your company for the experience we enjoyed with Alex and Charlotte on the camping safari leaving Broome on June 26th , this was our first time we have been camping and we thoroughly the experience.  Your vehicle was very comfortable to travel in, is well set up.  Alex and Charlotte were very well organised in setting up, with passengers assistance and repacking again. Alex’s driving was very safe and his commentary was very informative. Likewise Charlotte’s meal preparation well organised with plenty to eat, working under not the easiest conditions.

  We have often been told of the scenery in the Kimberley’s and were always looking for a way to see it and your organisation filled our expectations, we seen places we could never got with our own vehicle.  

Thanks again, to all especially Alex and Charlotte, we hope we may be able to do the Cape York trip at another time"
