What people are saying about Darwin

Thoroughly enjoyed a morning of adventure at Matt Wright’s Top End Safari Camp. There’s a great crowd of characters waiting at the camp to look after you Firstly on the leisurely river cruise (with egg and bacon rolls freshly cooked in the galley on the boat); an exhilarating ride on an airboat on the river, little side creeks and flood plain…our pilot Rowdy knew where to find the resident “salties” (estuarine crocodiles) and got up close and personal with one particularly boisterous croc called “Fluffy”; feeding the rescue crocs (watch out for those jaws, mate!); and finally a smooth helicopter flight over the river, flood plains and adjacent mango plantations. Cold drinks (and optional dip in the pool) on the deck while waiting for the chopper (flying variety). Would highly recommend this cool tour…about 8 hours from pick up (0630) to return (1430) from the Booking Office in the City.
