Get to know the Top End Arnhem Land, Northern Territory
Explore Arnhem Land, Kimberley region and Kakadu with one of the most recognised and respected guides in Australia - Sab Lord of Lords Kakadu & Arnhemland Safaris.
These Top End adventures allow the traveller a unique insight into Aboriginal culture, flora and fauna through the knowledge of traditional land owners. Sab and his expert guides host camping experiences at his permanent bush camp in Kakadu National Park. Or be one of the lucky one to join his accommodated safaris for private groups - he has permits to visit the beautiful Koolpin Gorge in Kakadu National Park, which few are fortunate enough to see.
Arnhem Land has always been Aboriginal land, and with permits having been required to enter since 1931, protection of Arnhem Land means that it has remained untouched and pristine. Sab works closely with other award-winning operators such as Bamurru Plains, Cicada Lodge and Davidson’s Arnhemland Safaris to ensure that all tours are of a high quality.
These tours offer privileged access to the entire area and can generally take guests anywhere they want to go across the region, matched to the guests' interest. This includes photography enthusiasts who want to photograph birds, culture and landscape, as well as those who want to gain a deeper understanding of the Indigenous people of the region. The rock art at Injalak Hill in particular is a sight to see and local guides explain its significance that dates back to between 100 and 8,000 ago.
Sab and his small number of guides operate exclusive and personalised private tours through Kakadu and Arnhem Land during the dry season - April and October. Accommodation options range from world class luxury lodges to comfortable private camps, with permanent tents, with floors, beds and solar lights and fans.
