A great trip to see some of this part of the NT. Suitable for all travellers, including solos - don't be put off travelling by yourself. There are long days and early starts, but they are so worth it! Great campsites with everything you require and a fabulous tour leader, Gordon. Well worth doing - I didn't want to leave!

The Intrepid trip to the top end is amazing. You visit out of the way places and share experiences with the locals. The range of activities can suit a variety of travelers.
