Kakadu Animal Tracks Safari is a small award-winning tour in Kakadu National Park. This is an afternoon safari, departing Cooinda at 1pm and returning around 8.15 pm. It operates daily with a non-aboriginal and a real bush aboriginal guide. This tour combines wildlife and traditional aboriginal experiences in an exclusive and personal environment. It is viewed as the role model for wilderness and indigenous tourism in the Top End.
It is not commercialised, is hands-on and very interactive. Extensive environmental and cultural interpretation is given by both guides. Activities may include bush food gathering, story telling, bush medicines, bush crafts and food tastings. It culminates in a bush food campfire cook-up Aboriginal-style at sunset that incorporates food gathered on the tour.
The Kakadu Animal Tracks Safari has exclusive access to the Kakadu Buffalo Reserve and the amazing bird gathering at Ginjala wetlands (only during the mid-Dry season).
Authentic hands-on aboriginal experiences (bush food gathering, bush medicine, bush crafts, sunset camp fire cooking and ground oven, authentic local aboriginal stories) with a 100% bush aboriginal guide that was born in the bush and grew up in rock and bark shelters (probably the last generation of Australia’s true hunter gatherers).
Family operated small business operating since 2000 at the request of Kakadu Aboriginal People to fund their community meat supply.
