I can thoroughly recommend Adventure Wild. All questions and concerns before the trip were answered promptly and patiently making it evident from the start that this is a very professional boutique tour group, passionate about introducing guests to the Kimberley.
The itinerary was well thought out, including all the main places of interest, and a number of two night stops ensured that we were not rushed but had time to relax and to thoroughly absorb the amazing landscapes. Ours was the final trip of the season and, as warned by Adventure Wild staff, it was very hot but there were always options along the way so that we could pace ourselves to be comfortable. A non-swimmer, I found myself ‘swimming’ in stunning gorges, billabongs, rivers and the clear waters of Lake Argyle.
Full marks to our two exceptional leaders, Gools and Thommo, for their skilled driving along endless rutted roads, their thorough organisation and attention to every detail including matters of hygiene, their background facilitation in moulding us into a cohesive, fun loving team, and their patience and sense of humour.
My appreciation for the Kimberley landscape and its people, (indigenous and more recent) was greatly enhanced by the knowledge, insights and storytelling particularly of Thommo. We were thrilled to be taken to an ‘undiscovered’ area of rock art. Gools, with Thommo’s assistance, produced deliciously healthy meals in the camp kitchen. She also managed to remain amazingly calm and level headed when a huge king brown snake joined us after dinner one night!
The tour is over but the memories and impact on me of my time in the Kimberley will live on.

I had a wonderful time. It exceeded my expectations. Gools and Thommo were terrific. They were informative and had a wealth of knowledge. They were very organized and all that helped make our trip run smoothly. They informed us along the way. The food was the best, quite nutritious and a there was a variety of meals, certainly not your everyday camping foods. The friendliness of the group also added to the overall trip.
I would like to extend my gratitude to you and your company and the overall team for a wonderful trip. I have already been recommending “Adventure Wild “ to those I talk to about my trip through the Kimberley. I will definitely continue to recommend it. WOW WHAT A GREAT TRIP.
Thank-you, kind regards

Hi Simone and Karl
A few comments on my Kimberley tour 8 – 19 august 2019:
Congratulations on making my trip to such a beautiful part of Australia so enjoyable. The planning and organisation and guides were terrific. Part of the pleasure was meeting with people from a diverse set of backgrounds and becoming solid friends during the trip. I have recommended Adventure Wild’s Kimberley trip to several friends and one is already planning to do it in 2019.

Congratulations on a wonderful product! It was well paced with a special highlight each day, subtly ever-changing landscape, group size just right and the option of adding on attractions made it affordable to anyone; however the clinchers for me were the tents already set up and no single supplement !
While the natural attractions, stunning sunsets, sunrises, and huge starry night skies are the same for everyone, I feel what set your product apart was the quality of your personnel – Gools and Thommo . What gems you have there. I observed other guides we met on the way and was so glad we had the Dynamic Duo. Not only were they knowledgeable on many subjects, they were passionate and professional, ever helpful, kind, capable, practiced, cheerful, sharing of their own life experiences, experienced at getting camp ready, harmoniously able to work together as a team, create a relaxed, happy atmosphere among the group and interested in each of us.
Oh and did I mention Thommo’s story telling skills and his sympathetic rendering of the plight of the Aborigines ?
And as for Gools’ culinary skills! We dined in a different country each night.
A fabulous trip that will stay in my memory as a highlight for a long time.
Thank you, Simone and Karl for a great tour.

I would just like to add to the rest of the glowing tributes to Adventure Wild.
My Tour 35 was headed by Gools and Thommo and what a team they are. The trip was absolutely terrific . I had really no idea that it would be so high above my expectations…scenery, food, the company and even the swags and tents made for an extraordinary and never to be forgotten holiday.
