Day 1 (L, D)
Departing Alice Springs bright and early, hit the road on an adventure of a lifetime (for those commencing the tour at Uluru, you will be collected from the Outback Pioneer Hotel or the airport). The journey begins heading south through the Waterhouse and James Ranges with a stop at the Camel Farm for a camel ride if you are feeling adventurous (at you own expense). After that, stop to view Atila (Mount Connor), a mesa tableland and the first significant rock formation of the trip.

After a stop for lunch, the tour heads to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, where your guide leads you on an interpretive walk from the base of Uluru, and explain Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa). Continuing on, you meet a local Aboriginal Guide who will provide a once-in-a-lifetime authentic Indigenous cultural experience with an interpretive walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole where and tell stories of the unique landscapes, art and culture of the local custodians, the Anangu people. 

The tour comes to an end at the Cultural Centre, where you can explore the displays and learn about the flora and fauna of this unique area. Experience the famous changing colors of Uluru at sunset complete with sparkling wine and nibbles. It's a great time to kick back and contemplate the day and the vastness of the desert. Afterwards, settle in at a remote private camp, complete with an Endless Star dining experience before retiring to your swag under the amazing night sky or your comfortable safari tent complete with beds.

Day 2 (B, L, D)
After watching the sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta from a lookout close to the campsite, it's breakfast and then off to Kata Tjuta for a 7-kilometer hike through the magnificent Valley of the Winds. After a leisurely lunch head to Curtin Springs Cattle Station with plenty of time to get a close look before traveling to Kings Creek Station for the second nights bush camp. This private and remote campsite offers an authentic experience of the Outback. After a campfire dinner, kick back and be mesmerized by the millions of stars on display.

Look out for wildlife along the way before arriving at the permanent camp at the small Aboriginal community of Wallace Rockhole.

Very good but sometimes too quickly

For someone who likes taking pictures and being contemplative in nature this tour was sometimes too quickly .... always obliged to run after the group ...
