Pack your swag, brush up on your ‘Waltzing Matilda’ and go bush for a couple of weeks on this award-winning camping tour that will leave you in wonder of the Kimberley.  Start with a day relaxing and exploring the unique outback town of Broome before heading off to experience the best that this magnificent region has to offer; Windjana Gorge, Tunnel Creek (Dimalurru), the famous Gibb River Road, El Questro Wilderness Park, the Bungle Bungles and Lake Argyle to name a few.  You won’t just tick these off your must-do list, your guide (a Kimberley local) will ensure you immerse yourself in the experience.  
 
Bungle Bungles Safari Camp, in the heart of Purnululu National Park truly separates this tour from all others. While travellers on other camping tours are in the public camp ground or staying outside the park (with a two hour drive each way consuming much of their day in the park!), Kimberley Wild has its own private safari camp!  Here you can enjoy the comfort and stunning views of the Bungles Massif. The camp features modern facilities – flush toilets and hot showers, a covered dining deck with panoramic views and an open air campfire around which we can relax beneath a sparkling Kimberley night sky: chatting, star-gazing and sharing the adventure with like-minded travellers.

Rivers created this landscape of unique orange and black striped 'beehive' geological formations over a period of 20 million years.
