What to Bring
It is essential that you bring a torch, shoes you don't mind getting wet - and we mean fully immersed in water: ideally, wet shoes, sandals or old runners, broad-brimmed hat with sun visor for all round sun protection, sunscreen, swimming costume and towel, good walking/trekking shoes and a personal water bottle.
You will also need to bring a sleeping bag, even if you have chosen the Camping Plus option (12DKE1) as these are necessary for the Camping nights and also the Bungle Bungles Safari Camp stay. 10ºC sleeping bags are available for sale at $35pp - these must be requested with our office prior to travel and can be kept following your trip or donated to local indigenous communities.
Other recommendations include: warm clothes for the evening (particularly if travelling May-Aug), personal toiletries and first aid, with any personal medication required.
** Don't forget the necessary luggage restrictions - due to limited space in the vehicles it is important that your luggage is in a small, soft bag (suitcases are not suitable) and weighs a maximum of 15kg.
- Departures are subject to weather conditions and road closures: usually only a concern for tours in April.
- Due to the nature of the Cape Leveque Road, this tour may not be suitable for pregnant women or travellers with back problems.
- The Islands of the Giant Tides cruise is tidal dependent. On neap tides, we will enjoy the alternative Kimberley Island Explorer Cruise.
- Accommodation upgrades are subject to availability and On Request until Confirmed.
- Breakfast on Day 4 and Dinner on Nights 3, 7, 8 & 11 and Lunch on Day 8 are not included as there are excellent local options available, providing freshness, variety and choice - allow approx AUD $200pp for meals. (Allow a little more if you want a beer or glass of wine with dinner.)
- This itinerary involves some clambering over rocks, wading in water by torchlight, walking on rocky creek beds and ascending/descending into gorges. A reasonable level of fitness and being sure on your feet is necessary to participate. Refer to the Fitness rating in The Facts.
- Expect some early morning starts! It is nicer to walk in the cooler morning and travel in the vehicle during the heat of the day.
- The Single Supplement does not include the Bungle Bungles stay; due to capacity constraints single travellers may have to twinshare with another traveller of the same gender - this is a rare occurrence.
- It is important that you appreciate the Kimberley Wild experience and the remote, vast nature of the areas through which we travel - please ensure you read our What You Need to Know and Frequently Asked Questions pages.
- Travel Insurance is compulsory for all travellers on all tours and details must be presented to tour guide before departure.
- Are you over 70 years old? Due to the remote location and challenging nature of our extended camping tours it is essential for older travellers to review and sign our Medical Form to ensure you can participate fully in the itinerary.
- A Tour Assistant is provided on tour for all larger groups of 8 or more travellers.
- On night 1 we reach the Safari Camp by boat, you will only be able to take a small day bag with a change of clothes, necessary personal items and toiletries for the night out at the Safari Camp.
- This tour is a Combination of two separate tours: 2 Day Cape Leveque & Kimberley Coast and the 10 Day Wild Kimberley Loop. It may therefore have different guides for each stretch.
