Guided overnight Uluru and Kata Tjuta Rock Tour From $695pp

Set out on an exhilarating journey to witness the fascinating Red Centre on an overnight Uluru and Kata Tjuta guided tour. Experience the natural wonders of these two iconic locations thoughtfully combined into one amazing trip, with a night of camping under a twinkling starry sky.

With so many incredible highlights over the course of two days, this is an experience like no other. Enjoy a breathtaking sunset and sunrise over Uluru and watch the fiery colours dance over the colossal rock. Explore Uluru’s Cultural Centre, view ancient Aboriginal Rock Art sites, and learn about the significance of this incredible national park to the cultural, ecological, and sociological history of this region. Visit Mutitjulu Waterhole and the Kantju Gorge with fascinating commentary from your knowledgeable local guide as you discover the treasure of Uluru. Marvel at the immensity of the Walpa Gorge and Valley of the Winds as you traverse Kata Tjuta, discovering why this national park has been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site for decades. Enjoy a campfire at night under an incredibly starry sky and choose between a classic bush camping experience in a swag tent, or for a bit more comfort opt for a cozy permanent safari tent. Either way, this adventure through the Red Centre will be one of the greater experiences of your life.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the sleeping arrangements?

Basic Single Swag (sleeps 1) – For guests who wish to sleep under the stars on the ground, in a self-contained canvas-covered bush bed roll with a camp mattress.

Twin Share Safari Tent (sleeps 2) – For guests wishing to sleep in the outback but remain protected from the elements, there will be permanent tented campsites, twin single beds with mattresses, bed linen supplied, and lantern. (Solo travellers booking separately in a Twin Share Safari Tent will be paired with another solo passenger, where possible of the same gender but not guaranteed.)

The permanent tented campsites have access to communal campground showers and toilets. These sites generally have limited solar power or are unpowered. Therefore, guests are asked to bring rechargeable power banks (limited power access to charge phones or cameras).

Can I get a pick-up from Alice Springs on the day of the tour?

Given the tour departs early from Alice Springs (between 6:00-6:30am), guests must arrive the day prior to the tour and stay 1-night. Once your Alice Springs accommodation is booked, please let the supplier know and they can arrange a pickup on the day of the tour. Airport to accommodation transfer pre and post tour is not included.

How fit do I need to be for this tour?

A minimum moderate to advanced level of fitness is required to complete the walks. The length of walks will be between 2km to 6km each day, often over steep rocky sections and in direct sunlight and high humidity. An approximate 12-15km walk is included in this tour. Embarking on walks will be at the guide’s discretion to ensure the safety of guests. Therefore a medium/high level of fitness is required and a doctor’s certificate is required for people over 70 years (30 days prior to travel).

How much luggage can I bring on tour?

Please only bring small soft overnight bags and hand luggage only as there is limited storage onboard the vehicles. Large suitcases and oversized luggage can be left at your hotel whilst you are on tour. This tour is not suitable for anyone who requires the use of a mobility aid, wheelchair, walker, and or stroller.

What type of food do we eat on tour?

Most of the meals are prepared by your tour guides with basic camping-style food options and on occasions, they will be provided by your accommodation providers onsite. Guests are asked to participate in the preparation of meals, clean-up, and vehicle unpacking/loading as it’s a great way to get to know and connect with your fellow travellers.

What kind of vehicle do we travel in for this Uluru Camping Tour?

You will be travelling in an all-terrain 4×4 range eco-tour bus, uniquely designed to handle the harshest of terrains and off-road tracks. The maximum number of passengers on these tours is 15-21 people, with a minimum requirement of 8 people to guarantee the departure.

What is the temperature like in the Northern Territory?

The weather in the Northern Territory can fluctuate and be extreme. It is not unheard of for temperatures to reach over 40+ degrees Celsius in the dry season and in the evening the temperature drops dramatically. Please ensure you have checked the average temperatures for the time of year you are travelling and have packed adequate clothing. In the event of rain or inclement weather, your experience will still go ahead, unless contacted by the provider.

Do I need Travel Insurance?

We endorse the recommendation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade that all travellers take out travel insurance. If you already have Travel Insurance please understand that it is your responsibility to ensure that your Travel Insurance covers you for all of the adventure style travel you have booked with us.
