Extraordinary wildlife encounters, excellent local produce and warm hospitality make this large South Australian island a destination without competition. With significant conservation reserves and few introduced pests, biologists refer to Kangaroo Island as “the closest to what temperate Australia was like at the time of European settlement.” It is home to sea-lions, fur-seals, kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, echidnas, platypus, goannas, 260 bird species (17 Kangaroo Island sub-species – many rare or endangered), possums, bandicoots, dolphins and whales. Family-owned Exceptional Kangaroo Island Tours offer small group and private tours, promising good food, good wine and wildlife. Although day trips are available from Adelaide, we recommend a two day/one night stay as a minimum. The interactive two day/one night "Kangaroo Island In Style" includes flights from Adelaide, two full-day tours (two to twelve guests with two guides for more than six guests), and an overnight stay on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis. Touring is conversational rather than with commentary and connects you to the best that the destination offers. Small group tours in custom 4WD vehicles feature home-baked morning tea, alfresco lunch with a choice of local wines, beer, soft drinks and spring water as well as access to field guides, binoculars and maps, and all necessary National Parks fees. 2 Day Kangaroo Island Experience Multi-day Experience or Day Touring Accommodation Options _________ This 2 day Kangaroo Island Experience with experienced local guides sharing ecology, history and contemporary lifestyle explores island life, learning about wildlife tracks, strangely shaped trees and even experiencing a private bush camp and enjoying a delicious meal. Visit Seal Bay Conservation Park and tour among Australian sea-lions on a beautiful sandy beach. You will also visit Flinders Chase National Park to explore massive natural shapes of Remarkable Rocks and see the Admirals Arch – a coastal grotto, home to long-nosed fur-seals. Kangaroo Island with its stunning scenery and abundance of native animals is recognized as one of the world's leading nature and wildlife destinations. Kangaroo Island Wilderness Tours is the specialist small group 4WD operator with each departure being a maximum of just six passengers. Because of this and our luxury Land Rover 4WD’s we can offer a highly personalised experience. Lunch is provided on tour that is a food and wine experience served in unique bushland settings. In fact everything is provided on tour so you can just relax and let our guides show you the best part of Australia. Our fully trained and accredited driver guides are true locals with most of them being born on Kangaroo Island. They have a great passion for the “Island” and have a depth of knowledge that is much more than can be learnt from a book. In some cases, their families have been here for four to five generations making them part of the fabric of the Island. Booking a tour gives the best chance of wildlife sightings as it is difficult to catch sight of them while concentrating on the road if you are self-driving! Therefore, this is also the safest option! 56 Multi-day Experience or Day Touring ANDERSON VACATIONS Highlights (included): • Kangaroo Island Touring • Flinders Chase National Park • Seal Bay Conservation Park • Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch.
