Staying in a cabin with fully inclusive services was a brilliant experience. So close to nature and the outback but also the lake and savannah. A terrific place for bird watchers too. Service was lovely and the hosts went above and beyond to ensure I got the most out of my stay.

We stayed in a 'tent' - more a portacabin, with wooden balcony at the front, and corrugated iron extension at the back with bathroom facilities. Not luxurious, but more than adequate. Set in a remote savannah landscape, perfect quiet, animals, birds and lizards passing by all the time. Greg and Margaret own a cattle farm, and run this tourist enterprise...

We stayed in a cabin with electricity - a must have upgrade for us. The best parts of the trip were the wonderful, extensive fresh breakfasts on our balcony in sight of friendly, local emus; kayaking across the lakes surrounded by abundant birdlife; a very personal and unique insight into savanna life from the resident guide (we visited his home...

Something a bit out of the ordinary, the safari is awesome our host was very talkative and informative about the wide range of birds we saw. Dinner at night was superb, a heaped portion of Barramundi and veges was just what we needed.

From the Emu's that greeted us at the Lodge entrance to the great food and help of the owners, this place is a nature paradise. The tents are comfortable and the main Lodge is right on a lake surrounded by huge trees. You could spend days birding right there. Combine that with guided boat trips and van safaris and you...

Had a great dinner on the deck- with sunset views across the water and then had the safari feel tent accommodation ( do not let the idea of a tent put you off, it has full size beds, shower and toilet inside, it was a lot bigger than most of the motel rooms I stay in) When had the privilege...

Staying in the deluxe tent while emu's pass the veranda was an unique Experience. Especially because a huntsman spider decided to hunt next to our bed the first night. We enjoyed the Safari and learned a lot on all the Different birds in the mareeba wetlands.

I had an unbelievable stay at Jabiru Safari Lodge. I don't know where to begin! It is a small family run business, and so you get to know the owners, Margaret and Greg (who are wonderful, kind, genuine people). They spend time and get to know you personally, and tell you about their lifestyle here. The safaris are incredible, both...

This was a magical stay everything was wonderful. This has been our best stay in Auz ,The whole place is brilliantly organised and friendly. Our eco tent was very comfortable the food was all delicious. The setting is out of this world and we had two nights could have stayed longer, thank you Margaret and Greg

The whole time here reminded us of our Tanzanian safari. The accommodation was a safari wall tent, but permanent with water and power. A continental breakfast was provided the evening prior so one could greet the day on the deck. Other meals, which were very good, were in the main lodge which was open air with a great view of...
