The tour was fantastic, the area was magical and the driver & guide Rachel, as well as the hosts in the camps, were simply great! Only the weather was different than expected. We were only able to sleep the first night in Swags, then it rained. But we were allowed to move into the tents. There were wraps for lunch and different delicious things for dinner every day.

This outback trip is perfect for solo travelers. You have the opportunity to experience the outback and its many facets. The swag is great! For those who have never tried it! We had a great guide. Jordan really brought us closer to nature. I felt safe. Be sure to book four days. Otherwise, just enjoy the experience...

Once in a lifetime experience to see incredible parts of the country. The tour is very well operated and we didn’t want for anything the entire time! The right amount of challenging and many many memories to take with us.

Fantastic tour. Very conveniently planned from the resort. It was a bit day but the bus, stops and planning made it very comfortable. Glen was an incredible tour guide. I could not recommend this enough

Had fantastic days at the Red Centre. Adam was an excellent guide and knew a lot about the area. The facilities at the campsite were also excellent.
