Over Wildman Wilderness Lodge
In April 2011 heeft deze tropische lodge haar deuren geopend. Deze kleinschalige lodge ligt temidden van de Mary River Wetlands. Hier wordt u getrakteerd op een echte 'wetlands'- ervaring. Ga zoutwaterkrokodillen ('salties') spotten tijdens een boottocht over de Mary River of maak excursies naar het prachtige Kakadu National Park. Hier ervaart u de tropische omgeving van Top End als geen ander. Aan het einde van de middag geniet u van een heerlijke maaltijd onder het genot van een Australisch wijntje. Zó hoort vakantie te zijn!

: Luxe 50m2 tent met fan, en suite badkamer.
Kamers zijn voorzien van airco en compleet ingerichte badkamer.
Temidden van de Mary River Wetlands, halverwege tussen Darwin en Kakadu National Park.
Kakadu wordt in de volksmond ook wel 'Kaka Do' genoemd. Dit geeft al aan dat dit nationale park eigenlijk niet mag ontbreken op een reis door het Northern Territory van Australië.
Kakadu National Park is even groot als Denemarken of Ierland en is het grootste National Park van Australië.
"Happy to be the first visitors of the new season"
We have just spent three nights here and had the pleasure of being their first visitors of the new season. Natalie, the manager, the owners Carol and Gerry and Michael, the chef, went out of their way to make our stay as pleasurable as possible. The food was outstanding and the presentation second to none. It was our first visit to the Top End and we are taking away great memories of our experience. The occasional monsoon didn't stop us doing all things we wanted to, and it was amazing seeing the wet season, maybe we will have to make a return visit in the "dry"! The rooms provide a wonderful view of the distant wetlands and the many wallabies grazing and we enjoyed a glass of wine on the verandah enjoying the vista, perhaps the only negative is that the Habitat lodge rooms are slightly tired, and on a personal note I would prefer a door on the bathroom/loo!
"Excellent staff, place ...and top chef"
So pleased with everything and a huge thank you to the chef David who was really understanding. The rooms are very comfortable, breakfeast delicious. You can have wonderful activities in a peacful place. Will come back !
"Beautiful retreat & good alternative to Kakadu"
Such a lovely welcome, told about the facilities, tours and dining times. Taken to our lodge and assistance offered with luggage. The entire place is so restful, admittedly we did visit at the end of the season, but we were still made to feel very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. My mum is dairy free and there was no fuss at all, the chef even offered to cook us anything we wanted - not that he needed to, the food was beautiful! Fresh, well-flavoured and beautifully cooked. There was an amazing choice for breakfast, and Amber specially arranged a dairy free lunch for the tour we took to Kakadu during our stay, which was the loveliest lunch we'd had all holiday! Amber is definitely worth a second mention, she was fantastic and went out of her way to ensure we had a lovely stay - even coming to get us from the pool when a herd of buffalo decided to wander past the front of the lodge - it was brilliant! Wallabies and Little Corella surround the lodge and grounds, and really add to the calm feel of relaxation - well not the corella so much! ;-) The Home billabong tour was definitely a highlight, and I would strongly recommend it to all - it's an early start, but then back to brekkie, and then on to your cabin for a morning snooze, and you'll never notice the early start! This is definitely worth adding on to any tour of Australia, it's only 1.5 hours outside of Darwin (the unsealed road slows you up a bit!), and it's a great way to see Kakadu without all the driving! Thank you to all the team for a wonderful stay! :-)
"Plan to unwind"
Come to experience real Australia, kangaroos are everywhere, you can spend hours just watching the hop around. The rooms are very spacious and well appointed, no complaints there. The restaurant was great, both breakfast and dinner will please you. The tours are great, don't miss the crocodile tour. The lodge also has bikes that you can borrow, I would highly recommend grabbing one so you can explore the area. There is something so relaxing about cycling through the outback.
"Amazing stay in the Wild"
This is truly a wonderful experience to stay in a hotel that is truly in the wilderness - the wildlife around both the main lodge and on the walk to and from our room was bountiful and beautiful - you forget how wonderful it is to see boxing wallabies in the wild...!!!! It wasn't a particularly busy period but the management / owners well and truly went overboard in looking after all guests and is was more like an invitation to a family home rather than a luxury stay in a stuffy 5-star hotel.... Showering whilst looking over a field of kangaroos / wallabies is something i will not forget for ages... Don't be put off by driving the last 7kms on dirt road - it is very well-maintained and you'll be happy you made the effort to see and stay in one of the most beautiful places in the Northern Territory....I hope to be back again soon...!!!!
