Kakadu boasts a small award-winning safari called Animal Tracks that is highly recommended for independent travellers wanting to experience the real taste of Kakadu National Park.
The tour combines wildlife and traditional Aboriginal experiences in an exclusive, personal environment with a non-Aboriginal and a real bush Aboriginal guide. Extensive environmental and cultural interpretation is given by both guides and activities may include bush tucker gathering, story telling, bush medicines, bush crafts and food tastings.
Experience a bush food campfire cook-up Aboriginal-style at sunset which incorporates the food gathered during your tour.
A day on an Animal Tracks safari will enable you to continue your trip with eyes much wider open as you learn to read the bush like an Aboriginal. Tours depart Cooinda at 1pm, returning around 8.30pm.
Animal Tracks is viewed as the role model for wilderness and indigenous tourism in the Top End with its real, earthy, hands-on and very interactive tour.
