ITINERARY

Why we love this trip
• It's a small group soft adventure guided safari
• Visit Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park and get the best of the park in a short time

Is this trip right for you?
• Looking for a medium adventure with like minded folks then this is the trip.
• Group participation makes up a lot of this trip, so you'll be required to help with preparation of meals and cleaning up. These are the kind of tasks that bring a group closer together.

 

Day 1: (Lunch*/Dinner)

Departing Alice Springs bright and early , we hit the road on our adventure of a lifetime (For those commencing the tour at Uluru, we will collect you from the Outback Pioneer Hotel or the airport). Our journey begins heading south through the Waterhouse and James Ranges with a stop at the Camel Farm for a Camel ride if you're keen (own expense). We visit Mount Ebenezer Roadhouse where you can view or purchase Aboriginal arti facts. Stop to view Atila (Mount Connor), a mesa tableland and the first significant rock formation of our trip. After a stop for lunch and our arrival at the Uluru - Kata Tju t a National Park, we travel to the base of Uluru where your guide will lead you on an interpretive walk, hearing of the Aboriginal law and r eligion (Tjukurpa). Continuing on, we meet our local Aboriginal Guide who will provide a once in a lifetime authentic Indigenous cultural experience with an interpretive walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole where you will hear the stories of the unique landscapes, art and culture of the local custodians, the Anangu people. This experience is followed by a hands - on dot painting session where you will take your artwork as a memento of your experience. We conclude at the Cultural Centre, where you may explore the dis plays and learn of the flora and fauna of this unique area. Experience the famous changing colours of Uluru at sunset, away from the crowds, complete with sparkling wine and nibbles. It's a great time to kick back and contemplate the day and the vastness of the desert. Afterwards settle in at our remote private camp, complete with our signature Endless Star dining experience before retiring to your swag under the amazing night sky or your comfortable safari tent complete with beds.

After a leisurely lunch we travel to Kings Creek Station for our second night’s remote outbac k campsite . Our private campsite at Kings Creek is miles from the crowds, which is where the feeling of ‘w ayoutback ’ really starts to take hold. After a campfire dinner it's time to kick back and be mesmerised by the millions of stars on display.

Surrounded by high r ed cliffs and the sandy Ellery Creek, the waterhole has been carved out by thousands of years of massive floods and is an internationally significant geological site. The permanent water here made it a special meeting place for the Arrernte people and is k nown to them as Udepata. Late in the afternoon we will 4WD in to our remote bush camp.
