￼Kangaroo Island is a place where you can quietly ‘go bush’ to see native Australian animals and birds as they were meant to be seen – in the wild. Echidna, Koalas, Australian Sealions and Tammar Wallabies (abundant here but almost extinct on the mainland), bandicoots and goannas abound on this island sanctuary. You’ll learn about the community’s work to restore habitats and explore the spectacular wildlife and coastal formations of the Flinders Chase. The island’s thriving art and food scene is also explored.
- Guiding by KI’s top wildlife experts
- See and photograph rare and endangered wildlife such as Tammar Wallaby

This is only one example of a TAILORED tour. Tailoring doesn't mean more expensive ... it can often mean less. We can develop tours to suit budgets and interests. The price depends a lot on what you want to do, where you want to go (some destinations are more limited than others), how often and the level of comfort and guiding you need. Drawing off our extensive portfolio, we find trips fall roughly into these price categories. Drop us a line with where you want to go, for how long and your approximate budget and you might be surprised what we can do for you.
