Mike Keighley was a fantastic guide! He picked us up in Darwin, and we toured Kakadu National Park, Katherine Gorge, and other areas over a short time period (4 days). He set us up with local expertise in several areas (Mary River, Yellow Waters, Katherine Gorge).
Although the wet season was a difficult time period to see a lot of wildlife (except for birds), he took us to several secret places, and we saw wildlife, rock art, waterfalls, galleries, cultural centers, and more. We learned a lot from his knowledge of the area and its people and natural habitats.
His personal understanding of ancient and current aboriginal culture is deep. We felt like we saw the best of this region over a very short period. We saw a lot and really liked him!
Called the Never-Never, the Maluka loved to say, because they who have lived in it and loved it, Never-Never voluntarily leave it…
