Secrets of Kakadu

A truly great way to see Kakadu. David our pilot kept us well informed and smiling all day. The boat cruise with Dennis and Stallone displyed Kakadu by water at its finest. Stallone shared his stories, traditions and local language. Lunch was excellent and will be visiting Cooinda again. We had a great day. Thank you Kakadu Air

Cannot speak highly enough of our terrific pilot/driver/tour guide/caterer Dave. He was patient and cheerful throughout and really looked after us. The scenery is amazing and this is the very best way to see Kakadu. The admin was terrific and smooth sailing from booking to completion- they even answered email questions after hours! Well worth the money- highly recommend Dave and the team.

hi Kate thank you for your kind words and 5 star review we are happy to share this beautiful part of the world with you thank you for your support kind regards Mat Jones
Great flight, great boat trip, both with excellent hosts.
, Oct. 2019
All the elements of this trip were just as you'd hope they'd be. Mitch was an excellent pilot, an attentive and informative tour host and just generally good company. The views were spectacular. Rueben on the boat was both entertaining and informative and the wildlife was everywhere thanks to his sharp eye and lively style. The whole day was comfortable, packed with interest and just flew by! (Sorry about the pun)

Hi V368SPjohn, We are really thrilled to receive such a vast and positive feedback, many thanks for your time and efforts! I will definitely pass your comments to our Pilot Mitch and Rueben from Cooinda Lodge. By the way, we love the pun! Thanks for choosing us and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip. Many thanks, Kakadu Air

The flight, tour and customer experience was exceptional. Mitch was very knowledgeable and provided outstanding service. Flying over Kakadu was breath taking and the Yellow river cruise was great too. I highly recommend this tour and definitely doing the Katherine day tripper next time with the same company.
