1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
The tour of Kata Tjuta - Ben the guide's knowledge and experience was simply wonderful. I've never met someone who could talk with such knowledge about geology, widlife, country lore.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
Camping was a bit basic but a wonderful experience - cooking over an open fire under a clear unpolluted night sky was simply ethereal.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?
We travel in purpose-built vehicles that are the most modern, energy efficient vehicles currently operating in the region. We are actively reducing carbon emissions and their negative impact on the environment. The Isuzu 500 series engine produces 2090kg less CO² than the 2006 model. As an example, when this is multiplied by six vehicles per year at 60,000km per year the result is approximately 12 tons less CO² per year. © Copyright images: Jeremy Simons, Samantha Ohlsen & Sarah Howarth.
This short but adventure-filled trip gives you an opportunity to experience the beautiful landscapes of Central Australia while learning about the local indigenous Aboriginal tribes.

For accommodations, we stay in permanent tented sites, which are often leased from local land owners. This supports the local community and gives them a steady source of income. While in national parks, we inform our passengers about the importance of staying to the trail as not to disturb the fragile rock formations. We also collect any litter we see along the way.
