Founder Max Davidson originally came to Arnhem Land in search of buffalo; he fell, spellbound, in love with the land instead. For almost 40 years he’s been running safaris here, sharing this special part of the world with like-minded (open-minded) travellers. The rock art is a highlight, says Sue Gough Henly. “Even better, you discover it in a spectacular landscape with escarpments rising over wetlands teeming with birds, fish and crocs. It feels like a living museum in a tropical Garden of Eden.” From $750 per person per night twin-share, including all meals, tours, activities and permits.
