This three day safari is perfect for the independent traveller who wants free time to explore and relax in Cape Tribulation and Cooktown at a leisurely pace. Overnight accommodation and select highlights at areas of interest are included in tour rates and most meals at your own expense, offering a variety of choices to suit. 
 
Day One (L) This morning you will be collected from your accommodation. Travel north along the scenic route to Mossman, lush farmland contrasts with seascape as  we approach the majestic Daintree River. A short morning tea break, then its ‘all aboard’ for an informative one hour river cruise. Relax and enjoy the splendor only the Daintree can offer as you learn of Estuarine Crocodiles, mangrove forests and wildlife, this is nature at its best! We ascend the Alexandra Range and pause for a panoramic view of World Heritage Tropical Rainforest merging with the azure colours of the Coral Sea. Experience the rainforest intimately on our elevated National Park Boardwalk. Accurate interpretations of flora and fauna will be given with ample time for photographs and questions as we search for the elusive, rare and totally unique Southern Cassowary and other wildlife species within this particular habitat.

A delicious barbecue lunch with freshly prepared salads is served while you have the opportunity to hand feed a kangaroo and enjoy a cold drink from the bar. Our tour does a little more. It takes us beyond Cape Tribulation along the 4WD Bloomfield Track to pristine Emmagen Creek and time for a refreshing rainforest stream swim. Seek fish and turtles in the creek, butterflies and exotic birds in the trees and indulge in a feast of tropical fruit, a complimentary glass of wine and a cup of traditional Billy Tea, all of which enhance the tranquil surroundings. At Cape Tribulation Beach there is a little time to swim in the Coral Sea (seasonal) or stroll along the beach and boardwalk to the photographers’ platform overlooking the mountains and coast where the ‘Rainforest meets the Reef’. You will be taken to your overnight accommodation at Cape Tribulation where you have the remainder of the afternoon and evening at your leisure.

You will travel through the heart of this World Heritage Listed area providing incredible glimpses of Australia that are hard to imagine. Travel over rugged mountain ranges, river crossings, spot crocodiles and other Australian wildlife and fauna. You will stop for lunch at the Lion’s Den Hotel, one of North Queensland’s oldest running bush pubs which was established in 1875.
