Hi Simone and team,
Just a few words to say, we had an awesome trip with Carmel and Mark our hosts, and 14 other like minded people. We all got on very well from the onset. Mark was so full of Kimberley knowledge, he was happy to share. Carmel’s cooking was really good! Campsite, tents etc very comfortable. Time around the fire after dinner was a perfect end to really amazing days of awesome scenery, walks, climbs, swims and spotting fauna and flora.
The whole trip from the booking to saying goodbye was so well organised.
Thank you all! Jeff and I will never forget the wonderful Kimberley experience.

We had a great time travelling with Carmel and Mark on this adventure tour. The organizing of our hosts was so excellent we sometimes wondered whether it would last the whole trip through. They were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. They also had wonderful tales to tell along the way and everybody laughed a lot. The happy hour times were great around a campfire and the meal produced in camp ovens yummy. We would also like to mention that we had great teamwork along the way. One thing that stands out for me (Agnes) that everybody helped to roll the swags for us “oldies” as we lacked the strength for this task. We even managed to get up at 5.30 am to begin the day and leave the sites by 7 am. I am still amazed to this day. Well that’s another ” bucket list” venture to cross off the list.
I wish we could have done this trip 10 or 20 years ago but we still had a great time doing it in our late seventies.
We recommend this trip highly.

As the season nears its end, I thought it would be timely to congratulate you and your team on being such a fantastic tour group. From the first phone contact, we received top notch attention and personalised care. I would have no hesitation in recommending your team to all my friends and family.
Tour 18 was competently lead by Thommo and Gools. This team went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure everyone had a fantastic time and were able to enjoy the trip at whatever fitness level they chose. They both worked tirelessly to ensure our comfort and needs were met. Thommo has an in-depth knowledge of both the geography and its people that give us a wonderful insight to the Kimberleys. This reflected his passion for the region. Gools has the capacity to “whip up” all meals on a gas jet, in the middle of nowhere, with few kitchen comforts. They work so well as a team and that’s obviously the key to their success.
The trip had so many positives – tents permanently erected, flushing toilets and hot showers, provision for additional drinks, amazing scenery, last night private billabong campsite, the list goes on.
The trip was a once in a lifetime adventure and the photos we took will be a lifelong reminder of a fabulous time in our lives.
Hopefully you will have a rest during the “wet season” and be ready to meet the 2017 season with the same energy and commitment as 2016. The Tourism Awards that Adventure Wild has been awarded are a true testimony of your commitment to the tourism industy.

I am a bit slow to comment on our experience with Adventure Wild but rest assured we have been recommending to our friends and family who are fit enough to put a trip of the Kimberley with Adventure Wild on their wish list.
Carmel and Mark are a great team who provided a memorable experience as well as being resourceful, helpful, kind, accommodating, great drivers, great cooks (best beer damper and amazing desert desserts) and demonstrating a range of other positive attributes to boot.
Our experience of the company was all positive from the time we first met Rory and Carl at the Lifestyle and Leisure show, to our online and phone dealings with Simone who helped us with bookings for the trip and ‘add-ons’ and the trip itself met or exceeded all our expectations.
Many thanks for providing the opportunity for us to see parts of our country that we might otherwise have missed.
On a personal note, I especially appreciated the effort that Carmel and Mark made so that we could visit the Yiyili community school and art gallery.

We would like to say that we have had the most wonderful holiday in the Kimberley, thanks to our very informative tour guides Carmel & Mark.
Adventure Wild you have the most amazing tour guides in Carmel & Mark, we have travelled all over the world and the two of them would be on top of our list. We had a great group that all came together and had so much fun.
The 12 day camping tour was everything we expected, the walks, the waterfalls, horse riding, the helicopter flight over the bungle bungles, sleeping under the stars, the food prepared by Carmel was plentiful, tasty and lots of variety, not forgetting the damper cooked by Mark, you will never go hungry. Sitting around the camp fire enjoying a drink or two and star gazing, very relaxing to finish up the day.
Would highly recommend Adventure Wild and our unforgettable tour guides Carmel & Mark.!!!!!!!!!!!
