Day 1 - Alice Springs to Ayers Rock

Departing Alice Springs bright and early, we hit the road on our adventure of a lifetime (for those commencing the tour at Uluru, we will collect you from the Outback Pioneer Hotel or the airport). Our journey begins heading south through the Waterhouse and James Ranges before stopping to view Atila (Mount Connor), a mesa tableland and the first significant rock formation of our trip. After taking a break for lunch and collecting guests from Ayers Rock Airport, the afternoon is dedicated to exploring Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Travel to the base of Uluru where your guide will lead you on an interpretive walk, hearing of the Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa) and learning about the art and culture of the local custodians, the Anangu people. We conclude at the acclaimed Cultural Centre where you can explore the displays and learn of the flora and fauna of this unique area. End the day experiencing the famous changing colours of Uluru at sunset complete with sparkling wine and nibbles. It is a great time to kick back and contemplate the vastness of the desert and a while getting to know your fellow travellers. Afterwards settle in at our private camp and enjoy a hearty meal before retiring to your swag under the amazing night sky or your comfortable safari tent complete with beds.


Day 2 - Ayers Rock to Kings Creek Station

Rising early, take a short walk to a lookout close to our campsite to view sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta without the hustle and bustle of the public viewing areas before heading off to Kata Tjuta for a walk through the "Valley of the Winds." Afterwards, we're off to Kings Creek Cattle Station for our second nights' remote private bush camp, complete with bush toilet and shower. With nobody else for miles, this camp has stunning views out over the George Gill Ranges and gives you a real feel for the outback. Dinner around the campfire makes for a very social time with another night out under the stars. Tonight, listen for the sound of dingoes howling in the distance while watching the desert sky light up above you.

MEALS INCLUDED - DAY TWO Breakfast - Lunch - Dinner

Day 3 - Kings Creek to Watarrka

Today we head off to Watarrka (Kings Canyon) for a mind blowing 6km walk through the towering walls, crevices and plateaus of Watarrka. We will visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and the tranquil ‘Garden of Eden’. After a well-earned lunch we return to Uluru for our final night in the outback. Late afternoon visit the camel farm (optional and own expense) to experience one of the oldest forms of transport in the desert before settling in for our last dinner together around the campfire. Later this evening visit Bruce Munro’s art installation ‘Field of Light’ (optional and own expense) or opt to stay back at camp and marvel at the clearest skies you can imagine.

MEALS INCLUDED - DAY THREE Breakfast - Lunch - Dinner

Day 4 - Watarrka to Ayers Rock or Alice Springs

Enjoy your final breakfast in the Outback before we travel to Ayers Rock Resort. Guests flying from Ayers Rock Airport have free time to explore some of the Resort facilities or participate in a range of free activities from Museum Tours to Bush Yarns before boarding the airport shuttle to meet your flight. Guests returning to Alice Springs will have a direct transfer following a brief stop at Ayers Rock Resort.

- Itinerary may change due to cultural reasons, seasonal changes, operational logistics and accessibility.

- Safari is not suitable for children under 5 years of age.

- *Clients joining at Ayers Rock Airport or resort will do so after lunch and therefore this is not included. Please ensure you have had lunch prior to your collection as we will be travelling straight to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park to start the afternoon’s sightseeing.

- ** Melbourne arriving guests should take free shuttle from Airport to Ayers Rock Resort and have lunch prior to pick up

- Please call our Reservations Team (1300 551 510) during business hours at least 48 hours prior to departure to confirm pick-up location and time.

- Field of Light is an optional extra on night 3. We strongly recommend pre-booking prior to arrival as spaces are limited and sell out quickly. The cost is $43 per adult and $30 per child payable direct to Wayoutback Australian Safaris upon booking.

- Due to limited space on the vehicle please restrict luggage to one day pack and one soft overnight bag/backpack. Excess luggage should be stored at your Alice Springs accommodation. If commencing at Ayers Rock please ensure you have one day pack and a soft overnight bag/backpack with the items you require for 3 days packed inside as your large luggage will be stored in the vehicle/trailer and will not be accessible during this time.  

- Single pricing option offers guest a guaranteed single permanent tent during the Safari. As we do not always travel at capacity, some guests may be given a single tent without supplement on location. No refund is given for those that have paid the single option in these circumstances. Additionally for those that have chosen single pricing and choose to sleep in a swag, no refund is offered for the single pricing paid.

Note: During these uncertain times, Wayoutback Australian Safaris will offer a 100% refund up until the day prior to travel for cancellations due to border closures inhibiting your ability to travel - we may ask for proof of residency in this situation.
