This 3-day adventure offers a value for money Red Centre experience featuring private campsites sleeping out under the stars in swags. Travel in an air-conditioned minibus and absorb the fascinating information of the area and its people provided by your experienced guide - all of this while traveling with other active travelers from all over the world....and of course you will hike, climb and explore Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon! Commencing in Alice Springs or Uluru, this safari finishes in Alice Springs.
Day 1 (L*,D)
It’s an early rise if you are joining in Alice Springs. Make the journey to Ayers Rock and meet your fellow travelers who are joining there. *Lunch is included for those departing from Alice Springs only. This afternoon embark on an interpretive walk at the base of Uluru (Note: Uluru is a sacred site and the Anangu people ask visitors to respect their law and do not climb). The Cultural Centre is impressive and well worth a visit before watching the ever changing colors of Uluru at sunset. After dinner, some stories and stargazing, it’s time for a good night’s rest at the private campsite before another active day tomorrow.
(OPTIONAL EXTRA: Field of Light - optional extra on night 1 after dinner. We strongly recommend pre-booking prior to arrival as spaces are limited and sell out quickly. The cost is $42 per adult and $30 per child payable direct to Wayoutback Australian Safaris upon booking.)
Day 2 (B,L,D)
Your guide will wake you bright and early to experience a mesmerizing Uluru sunrise, early mornings being such a magical time in the desert. Then it’s a short drive to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), an aboriginal word for “many heads”, to explore its domes of which there are 36 in total. Pull on your hiking boots and take the Valley of the Winds walk through creek beds, domes and beautiful wilderness. After lunch, it’s farewell to Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park as the group travels to Kings Creek Station to spend the night at the private camp.
DAY 3 (B,L)
This morning enter the Watarrka (Kings Canyon) National Park, home of a mighty chasm with sheer red rock faces which soar over 100-metres above lush palm forests. The rim of Kings Canyon is a 6-kilometer round trip walk and you will visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and tranquil Garden of Eden. After the final meal together, begin the journey back to Alice Springs arriving in the late afternoon.
