Itinerary

Day 1 : Uluru
After picking you up from your accommodation in Alice Springs bright and early, we hit the road on our adventure of a lifetime. (For those commencing the tour at Uluru we will collect you from the Outback Pioneer Hotel or meet you from your flight at the airport). Our journey begins heading south to Erldunda travelling through the Waterhouse and James Ranges with a stop at the Camel Farm for refreshments and a Camel ride if you're keen (own expense). We stop at Mount Ebenezer Roadhouse where you can view or purchase Aboriginal artifacts. On the way to Uluru we stop to view Atila (Mount Connor), a mesa tableland and the first significant rock formation of our trip. After a stop for lunch and our arrival at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, we travel to the base of Uluru where your guide will lead you on an interpretive walk, hearing of the Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa). Continuing on, we meet our local Aboriginal Guide who will provide a once in a lifetime authentic Indigenous cultural experience with an interpretive walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole where you will hear the stories of the unique landscapes, art and culture of the local custodians, the Anangu people. We conclude at the Cultural Centre, where you may explore the displays and learn of the flora and fauna of this unique area. Experience the famous changing colours of Uluru at sunset, complete with sparkling wine and nibbles. It's a great time to kick back and contemplate the day and the vastness of the desert. Afterwards settle in at our remote private camp, complete with our signature Endless Star dining experience before retiring to your swag under the amazing night sky or your comfortable safari tent complete with beds. (Note. Clients joining at Ayers Rock airport or resort will do so after lunch and therefore lunch is at own expense.)
Meals :Lunch, Dinner

Day 2 : Kata Tjuta
Rising early, take a short walk to a lookout close to our campsite to view sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta avoiding the hustle and bustle of the public viewing areas. We then head off to Kata Tjuta, an Aboriginal word for “many heads”. Take a walk through the Valley of the Winds to explore its domes of which there are 36 in total. We walk through creek beds, domes and beautiful wilderness. Afterwards, we're off to Kings Creek Cattle Station for our second nights' private bush camp, complete with bush toilet and shower. With nobody else for miles, this camp has stunning views out over the George Gill Ranges and gives you a real feel for the Outback. Dinner around the campfire makes for a very social time with another night out under the stars. Tonight, listen for the sound of dingoes howling in the distance while watching the desert sky light up above you.
Meals :Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3 : Kings Canyon
Today we head off to Watarrka (Kings Canyon) for a mind-blowing 6km walk through the towering walls, crevices and plateaus. We'll visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and the tranquil Garden of Eden. Later we start making our way back to Alice Springs travelling on a typical Outback dirt road. We'll drop you back at your accommodation early evening and usually all meet later for an optional night on the town (Alice seems like the 'big smoke' after three days in the bush!)
Meals :Breakfast, Lunch
