Testimonial for Adventure Wild
Garry & Bonnie Royle
Year of Tour: 2013
After many years of yearning to do an “Outback Holiday” but having no experience with 4WD vehicles or off-road camping etc, my wife and I learnt about Adventure Wild and their guided expedition tour of the Kimberley’s world famous Gibb River Road in a 4WD mini bus.
This appealed to us as a good way to experience much of what the Kimberley has to offer – without having to know anything about 4WD vehicles and camping, nor having to calculate time, distance, destinations and points of interest, as well as not having to organise food, fuel, equipment etc – and this “appeal” proved to be 100% correct.
Right from the beginning of Adventure Wild’s efficient and personal response to our initial inquiry, through to organising some special requests to suit our personal travel arrangements, and finally to our “welcome home: letter which was awaiting our return home, we felt secure we were in the hands of experts who knew what they were doing.
We were made to feel, as were all of our fellow passengers, like VIP’s (even though we had to pitch our own tents and swags and assist with setting up – and dismantling – the campsites at each end of the day!). It was all good fun and many laughs were shared.
Apart from the wonders and the splendours of the Kimberley (we’re told there is no other place in the world like it) we particularly loved the camaraderie and fun which developed (and enveloped) the group as the tour progressed. The sitting around the campfire having a “sund-downer” chatting to fellow passengers, the impromptu sing-songs and story telling whilst watching stunning sunsets evolve into magically star-filled skies was a fantastic way to top off the amazing experiences of the day.
