Leave sealed roads behind and head for the dirt with this 4 Day/3 Night 4WD safari visiting Uluru (Ayers Rock), The Olgas (Kata Tjuta), Kings Canyon and Kings Creek Cattle Station via riverbeds, bush tracks and sand dunes. Sleep under the stars and enjoy campfire cooking for an authentic outback adventure.
Day 1: (Dinner)
Your tour begins directly from Ayers Rock Airport where you will be collected before traveling the short distance to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. The afternoon is dedicated to exploring this extraordinary monolith starting with an interpretive walk led by your guide, and hearing of the Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa). You will also learn about the art and culture of the local custodians, the Anangu people, and visit the acclaimed Cultural Centre where you can explore the displays and learn of the flora and fauna unique to this area. Experience the famous changing colours of Uluru at sunset complete with sparkling wine and nibbles and plenty of photo opportunities. This is a great time to kick back and contemplate the vastness of the desert while getting to know your fellow travellers. Afterwards settle in at the private camp, complete with signature Endless Star dining experience before retiring to your swag under the amazing night sky or your comfortable safari tent complete with beds.
Day 2: (Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner)
Rising early, take a short walk to a lookout close to the campsite to view sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta without the hustle and bustle of the public viewing areas before heading off to Kata Tjuta for a walk through the "Valley of the Winds". Afterwards, we are off to Kings Creek Cattle Station for the second nights' remote private bush camp, complete with flushing bush toilets and hot showers. With nobody else for miles, this camp has stunning views out over the George Gill Ranges and gives you a real feel for the outback. Dinner around the campfire makes for a very social time with another night out under the stars. Tonight, listen for the sound of dingo's howling in the distance while watching the desert sky light up above you.
Day 3: (Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner)
Today we head off to Watarrka (Kings Canyon) for a mind blowing 6km walk through the towering walls, crevices and plateaus of Watarrka. We will visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and the tranquil 'Garden of Eden'. Afterward we travel a short distance to our next stop to enjoy a well-earned lunch followed by the opportunity to immerse yourself in an authentic indigenous cultural experience. Enjoy a leisurely guided walk with the indigenous custodians while learning about bush tucker and the healing powers of bush medicine and gain an insight into Aboriginal dot painting. Late afternoon we start returning to Uluru for the final night in the outback, you'll have the chance to visit the camel farm (optional and own expense) to experience one of the oldest forms of transport in the desert before settling in for the last dinner together around the campfire. This evening you can also visit Bruce Munro's art installation 'Field of Light' (optional and own expense) or opt to stay back at camp and marvel at the clearest skies you can imagine.
