A Logistical Triumph.
The Ngauwudu Safari Camp was first opened in 2011 and was built exclusively for the enjoyment of Outback Spirit guests. At a cost of nearly $4 million, the safari camp is the most exceptional tented safari accommodation in the Kimberley.
Construction of the camp started in 2010 with the aim of transporting the required equipment, machinery and building supplies to this remote area of the Kimberley prior to the wet season. However, the 2010/11 wet season was the biggest in a decade and created several logistical challenges.
To ensure the camp was fully operational for guests, the final loads of building materials were delivered by barge to Port Warrender, 47kms from the site. Access to Port Warrender was via an old mining track that practically had to be rebuilt by the building crew to enable access. A team of twenty tradesmen and eight locals from the Kandiwal Aboriginal Community built the camp over a four month period.
With an investment of nearly $500,000 in environmentally friendly systems, Ngauwudu Safari Camp is one of the most eco-friendly facilities in the Kimberley.
