I am finally sitting down with some time to write down a testimonial for Adventure Wild.
As you know I am a single mother with 2 children aged 6 & 10 and I was on the July Tour with Phillip and Liz as our Guides. I cannot express how happy I was with the tour. I traveled with my two children and a close friend of the family, who is 19 years old from Holland. We had a fabulous time and I think I can honestly say that it was the best holiday I have ever had with my children.
It was well planned, Liz and Philip were exemplary tour guides with an incredible knowledge of regional history, both Indigenous and colonial as well as vast knowledge about the local flora, fauna, birds and geological history. In fact there were very few questions from any of the participants on tour that could not be answered by Philip or Liz.
The food was healthy and very tasty, the kids loved it and so did all of the adults. We were treated with well prepared meals and a great variety every day and night.
I could never have done this trip without being on an organized tour – it is the first of this type tour group travel that I have ever done and we all loved it.
My little boy became sick halfway through the journey and Phillip and Liz gave us incredible attention to ensure his well-being and that all our needs were met.
The tents and swags were comfortable and we had well planned forewarning of what facilities were available at each site for showering, washing, swimming etc.
It truly was a fabulous experience and I have recommended your tour to a number of my colleagues as I felt it was exceptionally family friendly with Philip and Liz . The cost was very reasonable given travel, accommodation, guides, food, as well as over extended hospitality on the part of our guides which was afforded to each and every individual on the journey.
A spectacular part of the world and a wonderful journey. Looking forward to an expansion of Adventure Wild into the Pilbara or Kakadu so that we can go again with your tour group to another fascinating part of remote Australia.

Hi Simone & Karl
We would like to thank you for organising such an amazing tour. Having never been to the Kimberley before, we’d only seen it in pictures and on the TV. Having now visited and toured through the Kimberley, we realise that you just cannot appreciate the beauty of the area without actually travelling through it. Absolutely stunning and better than we had ever imagined. Your organisation for the tour was fantastic, so courteous and helpful – we were lucky that we only had a small tour group and we all got on really well. The camping experience was great fun and campfires at night added to the experience. We even had a snake in the toilet on the last night in Fitzroy Crossing (ably dealt with by Phil) which added to the excitement. I’ve already spoken to many friends about our experience and all have asked for details about Adventure Wild.
And finally, is there a better couple of tour guides than Phil and Liz. I can’t praise them highly enough for helping to make it a very special tour. Such a lovely couple who couldn’t do enough for you. They were so patient and thoughtful and incredible meals served on the tour. Nothing seemed to faze them and they were so organised. They worked endless from the time they got up (I didn’t even know that 5am existed?) to the time we all went to bed. Never met such a nice, considerate and caring couple. If the world was full of people like Phil and Liz, the world would be a lot better place.
Anyway, please pass our thanks onto all involved for helping us have such an amazing journey.

Just completed the 12 day Kimberley Adventure with Carmel and Mark. The experience they provided was outstanding in so many ways. Their willingness to help was a true credit to the organisation they work for, nothing was ever too much trouble, they helped us through difficult gorges, so we could experience the grandeur and beauty that is the Kimberley gorges.
Their knowledge of the plants and animals was amazing and often we would stop along the way, just so the group could get that special photograph of something we will most likely never see again. The team work and organisation around camp was again outstanding, they made it fun for everyone and accommodated each persons differences and needs with a smile.
I couldn’t recommend them highly enough even though I know this was their last trip. Thanks Adventure Wild and a special thanks to Carmel and Mark for an experience of a lifetime.

What a fantastic trip, we were so well looked after.
The food was great and the scenery amazing. There were a great bunch of travelling companions with us from all walks of life.
Our tour guides, Carmel and Mark, are very special people that made the entire trip such a pleasure. Constant laughter and an experience exceeding our expectations.

After years of waffling and trying to figure out the best way to explore the Kimberley region without risking our own vehicle, we settled on the Adventure Wild option and we are both incredibly grateful that we did. The whole trip from beginning to end was so well planned and executed from the camping to the FOOD (no fear of losing weight!) and commentary by Carmel and Mark. There is absolutely nothing I would change about the holiday. Mark and Carmel made us feel special, even adding in a few little extras like Cj’s birthday celebration.
Well done to everyone who is involved in pulling off these once-in-a-lifetime trips for us. It will be cherished in our memory for years to come!
