About Animal Tracks Safaris

Animal-Tracks-Vehicle-01-450We conduct exclusive, 7 hour safaris within Kakadu National Park that combines wildlife and aboriginal bush food (bush tucker) gathering, and many other interactive aspects of aboriginal culture with a real bush aboriginal guide, culminating in a traditional aboriginal campfire bush food cook-up at sunset. This tour is for open-minded people looking for a personalised and earthy experience. We show you the Kakadu you imagined.

You may have seen us on TV shows: Getaway, Postcards, SBS Food Lovers Guide to Australia and Australian Geographic Films and in various Australian newpaper travel stories.

Our safari has exclusive access to wildlife rich wetlands and tropical savannah woodland within Kakadu National Park including exclusive access to a seasonal unbelievable bird gathering spectacle. Small groups (max. 18 persons). We provide a truly unique and authentic experience.

We stand out from the rest by providing exclusive wildlife viewing access, in an open-sided 4wd safari vehicle and extensive personal teaching from our expert aboriginal guide with a focus on hands-on activities that utilise all of your senses.

Our History

Directly assisting the local Kakadu aboriginal community: Our day tours commenced in Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory, in 2000.

The senior aboriginal traditional owner (now deceased) requested we commence tours to enable the Kakadu Buffalo Farm to continue to provide preferred bush meats (buffalo, magpie geese, wild pig, fish etc.) to the aboriginal people of Kakadu. The tour pays a large percentage of gross tour proceeds to fund the Kakadu Buffalo Farm which has continued to provide bush food to smiling faces. The land is Aboriginal owned and Kakadu Animal Tracks tours has been granted special entry permission and other privileges that are not offered on other Northern Territory tours.

We are a small, family operated business.
