      Our 6 day tour of Kakadu, Nitmiluk and Litchfield National Parks with Hamish as our guide, surpassed all our expectations. The six days were packed with breathtaking experiences to the point that it was tough to name our top 3 spots on the tour. We were often the first people at a site, making each stop really special.
    Hamish is an outstanding guide with exceptional knowledge of the beautiful landscape, flora and fauna. We learnt a lot! Camping under the stars with our very comfy swags, will be a lasting memory of the tempo of the bush around us and the stars and moon above us as we drifted off to sleep. Hamish is a great cook (great vegetarian options!) and seemed to intuitively understand how to pace the trip and give us family time along the way. His insight into the Aboriginal communities and way of life gave us all a perspective that we had not considered. He also adjusted when we had special requests. Thanks Hamish for taking me to Alex and Petrenas Top Didj gallery. I came away with art that I will treasure always!
    If you want to immerse yourself in a truely wonderful experience, bypass the big tour groups and make your Kakadu experience one to remember, we all recommend Hamish. Big thanks!


      Awesome 5 days touring Kakadu with Hamish and sleeping in swags under the stars. His local knowledge was superb and he provided a fascinating insight into the area, its history and geography. Even though we had visited Kakadu before he was able to take us to deserted gorges and swimming holes we hadn't seen and provided a totally different view of things. Considerate and generous host with an excellent repertoire of camp fire recipes. Perfect for small groups and an excellent guide to the area. Thoroughly recommended.


      My 7 year old, my parents and I did a three day chartered tour of Kakadu with Hamish from Sugarbag Safaris and I have to say this one of the best decisions we have made. Hamish has been running tours of Kakadu for 20 years...More
