The Wildman Wilderness Lodge, which opened last week in Mary River Wetlands between Darwin and Kakadu, takes recycling to a whole new level. It has been dismantled, transported 1,500km across the country from its original home on Australia’s north-east coast where it was the Wrotham Park Station, and reconstructed to offer a new wildlife safari experience.
Cox & Kings, offers a wide range of tailor-made holidays to Australia. A 4-night stay at the Wildman Wilderness Lodge, combined with 2 nights in Darwin is priced from £1,750 per person, including transfers and accommodation in a Habitat room with breakfast and dinner daily. The price excludes international flights.
Alternatively, Cox & Kings can include the Wildman Wilderness Lodge as part of a longer private tour around the Northern Territory to take in the region’s ancient Aboriginal culture, abundant wildlife, assorted landscapes and rugged scenery. A 14-day / 13-night itinerary, including 3 nights in the Wildman Wilderness Lodge, a journey on The Ghan train from Darwin to Alice Springs and 5 days car hire to visit Uluru, is priced from £2,845 per person including transfers, car hire and accommodation with meals as specified. The price excludes international flights.
Optional activities on offer include sunset cruises, wetland safaris, wildlife photography and bird-watching, and will be accompanied by naturalist guides or, where possible, trained Aboriginal guides.
