My husband and I usually travel on our own, but we were fascinated with The Kimberly and coming from the U.S., we were overwhelmed by the challenges. So, we researched and chose Adventure Wild. From the start of our contact with Simone, we were reassured that we had chosen well.
The first day on the road, as our guides Thommo and Gools introduced themselves, traded driving chores and smoothly eased us into our new routine, we were totally pleased. Since Thommo and Gools have spent their professional lives guiding just such expeditions on many continents, everything ran smoothly, no matter the circumstance.
There was no drama as they dealt with an injury on the first and third day. With Simone’s help, the amazing outback medical community was quickly available. The injured parties received full attention from Thommo and Gools, but since there were two such highly professional guides, they were able to continue the service and the forward progress for the rest of the group at the same time.
Their knowledge base of The Kimberly was extensive. A bonus is that they have forged friendships with more than one aboriginal group we encountered.
And the food, well, the world of food was on our table, night after night. How could such taste and quantity come from such a tiny mobile kitchen? The tea stops were fun, as well. We were there to learn about Australia, so we were delighted to encounter, not only healthy treats, but also fun foods such as Lamingtons, Iced Vovos and outback station scones.
Australians know they have something special in The Kimberly.
To people traveling to Australia, we can sing the praises of the relatively untouched treasure and without reservation, we can recommend Adventure Wild’s competence and commitment to such a special place.

There are not enough words to express the amazing camping experience our members had in June of this year. From the pick-up point in Broome to our final destination in Kununurra, our hosts, Jools and Thomo, excelled in their attention to detail in all facets of the Kimberley in which we travelled. We all express our sincere thanks in the care you yourself provided to our Maggie (first mishap). The work you did behind the scenes was amazing and to see our Maggie flown in to our next overnight stay was a joy to behold! Thank you. The same applies to the understanding you showed Meg (mishap No 2). Again thank you, and also to both Jools and Thomo who not only ensured the rest of us were kept informed, but ensured our Kimberley experience would proceed as planned with lots of education, fun and great food.
Jools and Thomo are an amazing couple – they shared themselves amongst us all as if we had known each other for ever, and after just 7 days camping with them as our tour guides, we all feel as though we could just turn up at any time and be welcomed back into their realm. I am sure the majority of people who have them as guides would feel the same way. A personal note of thanks to yourself Simone – from my initial enquiry on behalf of our members, you were always been ready with quick responses to all my enquiries which made me feel comfortable in recommending your tour to our club.
Once again, many thanks Simone – there are some of us who would love to do the tour from Kununurra to Broome – so fingers crossed you will hear from us again at some time in the future.

The letter says it all – your business is amazing, you are amazing as are Jools and Thomo It’s taken me a while to be able to sit down and minimise the feelings I have of the most amazing holiday I have had. The feelings I and so many of our members have in remembering those 7 days are just so deep with emotions – I talk to people about the isolation, the reality check one gets when out in the Kimberley, the trying to understand where we all fit on this earth, the reality that we are all integral in ensuring our environment is nurtured and respected etc. For me personally, Jools and Thomo provided me with a deep sense of thanks, but also opened up feelings deep within me which take me back to my childhood in the back and beyond of Broken Hill. I now have the urge to experience more of the Kimberley.

At last I’ve got myself organised and catching up on emails. Thought you might like these snaps to remind you of the BEST safari you have done!!!! We so enjoyed ourselves and want to thank you once again for giving us one of the best experiences we have had. We keep talking about all the fun we had and the spectacular places you took us to and all the fabulous meals. Just as well we did plenty of exercise as we were certainly well fed. We are noticing the freezing weather back here in Melbourne after the magnificent weather we enjoyed in the Kimberley. Hope the rest of your season goes well and you have some good groups. You are a terrific couple and we were so glad to be on your tour.
Thanks again for a wonderful time love

Keith and I wanted you to know that we considered the trip one of the best trips we have ever done. Cauf & Adey made everything very easy for us both but me in particular. We honestly could not have experienced anything better. Attention to detail, menu etc were of the highest standard. Again, thanks for everything.
