Enhance Your Safari with Optional Experiences: Sounds of Silence Dinner. You can enhance your Safari with the very popular Sounds of Silence Dinner* which is an open air dinner set in the stunning Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park.
Day 1: (Dinner).
Your Red Centre tour begins at 2 pm, where we leave Alice Springs and hit the dirt travelling directly to Kings Canyon via the famous Mereenie Loop Road, visiting varying Red Centre sights along the way. On arrival at Kings Canyon Resort, check in to your 4 star hotel room and, time permitting, we will enjoy a sparkling wine with a selection of canapés whilst watching the amazing sunset on Carmichael Crag at the western end of Kings Canyon. Tonight, enjoy a sumptuous dinner at the resort’s restaurant with your tour group.
Day 2: (Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner).
Following breakfast we travel to Kings Canyon for an early guided walk. The Rim Walk is botanically and spiritually rich, combined with astounding scenery such as the buttressed domes that surround the Amphitheatre, the Lost City and Garden of Eden. The walk takes approximately 3 hours requiring a good fitness level and for those wanting a softer option, there is the shorter and easier Kings Creek walk leading into the centre of the canyon.
After the walk, we travel to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, stopping at Willonga Well for lunch under the shade of mighty Desert Oaks with perhaps a glass or two of wine. On arrival at the National Park, it’s a good time to stretch our legs at Kata Tjuta with the Walpa Gorge ‘Windy Gully’ walk, suitable for most fitness levels. Returning to the hotel, there’s time to prepare for the evening activities and for those partaking in the Sounds of Silence Dinner* (additional expense), you’ll be picked up from the hotel while the rest of us find a remote location to observe the famous changing colours of Uluru and Kata Tjuta at sunset, accompanied with canapés and wine or cool refreshments. After sunset we travel back to the hotel for a beautiful 3 course dinner and chat about the day’s events with the rest of the tour group.
Day 3: (Breakfast/Lunch**).
Depart the resort under darkness and travel to a remote location to witness a magnetic Uluru sunrise. Guests electing to climb Uluru will be given a breakfast box and taken directly to the base to commence their 2 - 2.5 hour climb (weather permitting) while those not climbing will travel back to the hotel for breakfast. Anangu discourage people from climbing Uluru.
We will rendezvous with guests that climbed Uluru to experience the wonderful walks around the base, learning of the creation myths and fascinating geology of Uluru.
For those departing from the Ayers Rock Airport / Resort, your tour guide will deliver you by 12.30 pm and for those returning to Alice Springs, we commence our journey back, stopping at Curtin Springs Station for a typical Aussie BBQ lunch. We will return you to your hotel at approximately 5.30 pm where your Red Centre tour ends after three days of travel through the stunning beauty of the Outback.
