Getting Here

Many major airlines offer direct domestic and international flights to Darwin.

Once you arrive, we suggest that your group takes advantage of a scenic charter flight by light aircraft or helicopter from Darwin direct to any one of our hunting destinations, where you will be greeted by either Peter Lorman, Jason Lorman, Eric Röse, Marten Muis and Richard Norris; who will be your guides and hosts for your hunting adventure.

At the end of your Safari, your scenic flight operator will return to fly you back to Darwin.

The alternate option is a five to seven hour road journey in a comfortable air conditioned Landcruiser to our boar bush lodge at Mudjeegarrdarrt in Western Arnhem Land, or a ten hour road journey to our buffalo bush lodge at Mann River on the Central Arnhem Land Plateau.

Climate

Tropical Hunting Safaris run from May to October inclusive, throughout the ‘Dry’ season, which is characterised by warm, dry sunny days and cool nights. Temperatures typically range from 21C (70F) to 32C (90F), and the humidity levels are much lower: around 60–65%.

We do not conduct tours during the ‘Wet’ season (November – April) as this period is characterised by increased humidity and monsoonal rains and storms, which can restrict travel.

In June, July and August at Mann River it can get down to 5 degrees at night and at Murgenella down to 10 degrees. We suggest that you bring a jacket or sweater especially on early starts in morning.
