Responsible tourism: Kakadu and Arnhem Land tours, Australia
The diversity and sheer volume of birdlife in this area can be witnessed throughout the itinerary and will appeal to ecologists, birdlovers and wildlife documentors alike. Indeed nowhere in Australia is the bird life more exotic nor is the variety more extreme than in the Northern Territory. Your guides will be able to locate and identify many different species and provide an informative commentary throughout.
One of the group tours travels to the culturally sensitive Arnhem Land and is operated by the legendary Lords Kakadu and Arnhem Land Safaris. Sab Lord, the owner, was born and raised in Kakadu and has a great respect for the land and its people and wildlife. He personally trains many of his guides and their respect for the area really rubs off on guests. The local Aboriginal people in turn have a great relationship with Sab Lord which gives his touring company exlusive access to some fascinating areas of Arnhem Land and some wonderful Aboriginal art and isolated communities which are inaccessible to other operators.
The guides which run this tour are experts in biodiversity, cultural heritage and rock art promoting a responsible, educative focus whilst ensuring a minimal effect on the environment. This in turn helps communicate and interpret the natural values and cultural heritage of the areas visited, while encouraging protection, preservation and conservation of all resources in order to have sustainable visitation for future generations.
