The safari lodge is stylish and subtle, highlighting the natural wonders that surround it and bringing the atmosphere inside. There are 10 safari-style bungalows all overlooking the floodplain, with mesh walls on three sides so it feels as if you are truly camping out. The lodge has an infinity pool overlooking the savannah so you can enjoy nature’s stage show while cooling off. On safari, you will be fed delicious bush-tucker canapés and for evening meals dine with fellow guests. Make the most of the open bar and the delicious tastes of native dishes such as bush spices and plants, this is outback cuisine with a gourmet edge.


The construction of the lodges, deliberately limited in number, aimed to minimize the impact on the delicate environment. The camp relies significantly on solar power, with 240 solar panels providing 75% of its power and contributing to heating the hot water. All linen, sourced from EcoDownUnder, is made of organic cotton free from chemicals. Locally produced and chemical-free soaps are provided for guests, and chemical containers are reused, while bottles are recycled. The use of local products from the Top End of Australia is prioritized in both construction and boutique offerings whenever feasible. Guests are actively educated on the lodge's conservation initiatives, and for each guest staying at the camp, a donation is made to the Australian Wildlife Conservancy.

Why we love it

Take an evening trip out across the wetlands on the hovercraft. Enjoying the sight of birds flying across the glowing sunset. Stop and absorb it all while sipping on a glass of champagne, as buffalos wander by and magpie geese swoop and dive across the horizon.
