4 Night Outback Helicopter Safari

Book

Arkaba shares a common border with the dramatic natural amphitheatre of Wilpena Pound, the jewel in the crown of the Ikara-Flinders Ranges.
The pound has been formed by some of the oldest rocks in the world and holds great significance for the local indigenous Australian people, the Adnyamathanha people.

There is no better way to explore this ancient landscape than a jaw-dropping helicopter safari. Hugging Wilpena Pound and our Elder mountain Range and then swooping down into Brachina and Edeowie Gorges is quite frankly just exciting.

Your helicopter safari starts on the lawn right by the Arkaba Homestead and will take you over Wilpena Pound and the ancient ramparts of the Flinders Ranges. Passing over Rawnsley Bluff, down the spine of the Pound, weaving amongst the cliffs of the incredible Heysen Range and low level through Brachina Gorge. Break left onto the flats with Lake Torrens in the distance before touching down at the Prairie Hotel in Parachilna for a gourmet platter of ‘feral food’ (or something else that takes your fancy). We’re back in the helicopter for round two tracking south along the old railway and through Edeowie Gorge, around St Mary’s Peak and west along Arkaba’s spectacular Elder Range. You’ll admire Arkaba’s walking trails and spot wildlife from the air before landing at the Arkaba Homestead in time for a sundowner drink on top of the ranges.

Includes:

- Daily guided wilderness safaris
- 4-nights accommodation at Arkaba Homestead
- All chef-prepared meals
-All beverages
- Three-hour helicopter experience over the ancient Ikara-Flinders Ranges with lunch at the famous Prairie Hotel, one of Australia’s finest outback pubs.

Price:
$4,565 per person twin-share, minimum two people.

The Arkaba Walk runs from 23 March to 12 October 2017 with departures every Thursday throughout the season and additional Fridays in March, April, August, September and October.

Traversing the ancient Flinders Ranges and the private Arkaba Conservancy in outback South Australia, The Arkaba Walk is an experience that immerses you in the story of the land. 600-million years of geological history echo through the stratified layers of Wilpena Pound and the Elder Range, providing spectacular backdrops throughout the walk, while craggy sandstone bluffs and dry creek beds lined with River Red Gums offer a quintessential outback landscape. Large numbers of Red and Western Grey kangaroos, wallaroos and emus are regular sightings along the walk, and the country is littered with the stories, and often heroic failures, of early pioneers who tried to eke a living from the harsh but beautiful country. Arkaba’s own conservation management programs offer interested guests the chance to learn of the challenges that Australia faces in conserving its unique and diverse environment.
