Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon
Alice Springs to Uluru
Your adventure begins as you leave Alice Springs and head south with a first stop at a Camel Farm for a break and a camel ride if you`re keen (own expense). Many people don’t realise it but the Australian Outback has thousands of wild camels, which you will come to realise during your journey.
We continue to Mount Ebenezer Roadhouse where you can view or purchase Aboriginal artefacts. On the way to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, keep your eye out for Atila (Mount Connor), which you’d be forgiven for thinking was Uluru!
After lunch (not included) you will enter Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park for a visit to the Cultural Centre to learn about local Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa) before a short, guided walk at the base of Uluru. Those choosing to climb will have the opportunity to do so, weather permitting. (Note: Uluru is a sacred site and Anangu, the indigenous custodians, respectfully ask visitors not to climb it). You will also have time to do your own longer walk around the base should you want to explore further. As the sun disappears into the land for another day enjoy some sparkling wine and nibbles while watching magnificent Uluru go through a vibrant colour change.
Afterwards, we head to our private campsite to enjoy dinner before retiring to our comfortable permanent tents or rolling out the swag for a night under clear southern skies. You will never see stars better than this! (D)
After a stop for lunch and our arrival at the Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park, we head to the Cultural Centre for the opportunity to learn about the local Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa). We then head to the base of Uluru where 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. This experience is followed by a hands-on dot painting session and you can keep your artwork as a memento.
Experience the famous changing colours of Uluru at sunset, away from the crowds, 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.

Uluru to Kings Creek Station
Get up early to view the sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta from near your campsite before driving to Kata Tjuta for a walk through the ‘Valley of the Winds’. After a brief stop at the Ayers Rock Resort it’s time to head to Kings Creek Cattle Station to our remote and private campsite, complete with bush toilet and shower and permanent tents. The camp has stunning views out over the George Gill Ranges and gives you a real feel for the outback. Experience a campfire dinner with new friends and another night out under the stars. (B,L,D)
Kings Canyon to Alice Springs
This morning take a guided walk to see the towering walls, crevices and plateaus of Watarrka (Kings Canyon). Visit the Amphitheatre, the Lost City and the tranquil ‘Garden of Eden’. You’ll arrive at your Alice Springs hostel/hotel in the early evening where you can meet your new friends later for a meal and drinks. (BL)
