Experience the splendour of the Australian Outback on this wildlife safari. Staying at Kangaluna Camp, you'll explore the terrain of South Australia and witness incredible landscape and animal life, from the red rocks and white sand of Lake Gairdner to the Australian sea lions and bottlenose dolphins at Baird Bay. Includes return flights from Adelaide to Port Lincoln.
This 3-day Outback safari takes you to some of the greatest Outback and wildlife spots around Port Lincoln in South Australia.
Your Australia vacation begins with a flight to Port Lincoln, where you'll connect to Kangaluna Camp, your base to explore the stunning landscape and fascinating wildlife of South Australia. On your way to Kangaluna Camp, you'll pass through Mikkira Station to see a colony of wild koalas before heading to Wudinna, a small farming outpost with a population of only 600. Once you reach Kangaluna Camp, you'll head on a safari excursion to see the incredible animals that call the Outback home, including emus and three large species of the iconic kangaroo.
While at Kangaluna Camp, you'll spend your time exploring the surrounding area. A morning drive to Lake Gairdner will reveal just how breathtaking this landscape is; as you stand on the banks of the lake and peer north, you'll be treated to a symphony of colour as red rock blends with the white salt pan as far as the eye can see. Later, a trip to Baird Bay will treat you to face-to-face encounters with bottlenose dolphins and rare Australian sea lions, who may celebrate the occasion by planting a wet kiss on your cheek.
This Australia vacation lets you experience the stunning landscape and incredible wildlife that makes the Outback so singular. Return to Adelaide for your onward flight.
