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.
"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...!!!!
"Sunset at Kangaroo playground"
Very nice place to spend a few nights in the middle of wildlive. Swimming surrounded by kangaroos and a sweet little frog at night in the bathroom. Bar and kitchen where also outstanding and our tent didn't fade out the sounds of the bush
"Fantastic eco-resort experience"
Stayed two nights and my friends and i thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Positives - 1) high quality dinner and breakfast. Dinner was a 3-course meal and food and plating is rated 5-stars. Breakfast was great as we were offered cold breakfast and hot breakfast options such as an all-day big breakfast or omelettes. The hot breakfast meals were well-cooked and tasted great. Not sure why other reveiwers gave disappointing comments on the breakfast.. 2) home billabong tour was fantastic, peter was a great guide. He taught us to look for crocs in the swamps, observe their behaviour and we spotted more than 10 that morning, either in action catching a fish or basking or partially submerged in the water. Learnt a lot abt these misunderstood reptiles thru this tour. The tour is also way less commercialized than those jumping crocodiles cruises as u get to see the crocs in their natural envt, rather than being spoon-fed by human beings for our own visual consumption.. 3) service was great, as its non-peak season we were upgraded from a normal safari tent to the air-conditioned lodge. Nothing more we could ask for. Beds were comfy. Toilet facilities well-maintained. Only drawback is the absence of a toilet door... Would recommend to stay here for the ultimate outback experience, would come back here again, but maybe during the dry season where the weather is less hot!
I enjoyed a great stay in this lodge thanks to the staff that was always helpfull .Our guide Chizo shared his knowledge & stories with city girls like us about this beautiful area with a lot of humour. The Chef had also made special meals for my friend who ate veg food and I really recommend his creme au chocolat. Be sure that you will not starve : some time I was full only with starters. some hints : if you are not a great fan of heat, book with air conditioning. Tents are really nice and comfortable but can get really warm. You can book a few days only : many guests were staying only for an extended weekend time. So go ahead forget your phone/computer (no wifi in tents) and enjoy a quiet stay in this lodge surrounding by beautiful landscape & animals . One thing to improve : change menu each week or add suggestion of the day.
"Fabulous wilderness experience"
My wife and I stayed at this lodge for 3 nights as part of a tour which included Adelaide and the Ghan. We chose to stay in the safari tents and shared our first night with a tree frog in the tent. My wife was a little perturbed by the myriads of insects around the tent and also within, but we only got 1 mosquito bite between us. The safari tent was very comfortable with plenty of space. We enjoyed the noises at night made by the tree frogs and had no difficulty sleeping. During our stay one afternoon was oppressively hot in the tent, but the bar in the lodge has air conditioning. The food on offer in the restaurant was excellent and we enjoyed tucking into our evening meals after a hard day enjoying ourselves in the bush. We went on a day trip to Kakadu, a morning billabong boat ride and a sunset trip on the Mary River flood plain. We saw a lot of wildlife and our guides were very informative. The staff were always very friendly and very helpful. This was one of the highlights of our tour round Australia and I thoroughly recommend that anyone who has an interest in wildlife should go there.
