2 Day Kakadu 4WD Safari Itinerary
No matter what time of year you visit Kakadu, there is always something to do. The dry season runs from May to October and at this time of year most visitor sites are open. The wet season extends from November to April and brings green landscapes, flooding and the chance to explore with fewer visitors. This 2 Day Kakadu 4WD Safari runs from March - September an offers 2 full days of hiking, swimming, waterfalls, bush walking, exploring and enjoying the wonder of Kakadu National Park.
Due to the nature of the weather and the changing seasons in Kakadu and its effects on the road access in the area, itineraries can vary for each tour departure. No matter the itinerary however, we offer handsdown the best 2 Day Kakadu 4WD Safari experience available and all that at a great price.
The Kakadu 4WD Tours itinerary is chosen from the following activities:
