Contributive Australian experiences
Wild Bush Luxury's guiding philosophy is to provoke, inspire and reconnect travellers to the bush through experiences that are exclusive, natural and above all, quintessentially Australian. They offer a truly unique way for ethically minded travellers to take a self-satisfying life break in order to make a tangible eco-contribution.
Conservation is at the heart of everything Wild Bush do, inspiring clients to embrace the natural world for a more richly rewarding, immersive experience. Arkaba, in South Australia's Ikara-Flinders Ranges is a private wildlife conservancy set in 60,000 acres. Guests can expect astonishing birds-eye views of the natural landscape via a private helicopter, allowing time to take in the raw appeal of the beautiful Australian outback. Landing at an exclusive swag camp for the evening, a full bush dinner awaits, before guests retire for the night to their cozy swag under the stars.
Aside from merely observing native habitat and vegetation, guests can also gain a rare insight into what's involved in conservation, with some hands-on activities. These can include working at close-quarters with nature guides tracking a radio-collared feral cat with a telemetry device, to better understand how to protect native species and the environment through feral control. It's the perfect blend for those wanting to broaden their horizons and return home with the knowledge they have contributed to a better world.
For a truly aspirational experience, Bamurru Plains safari lodge offers exclusive access to 300 square kilometres of private floodplains and savanna woodland on the Mary River, on the edge of the Kakadu National Park.
