Daintree Safaris and Nicholas Fox conduct luxury, four wheel drive day...

Daintree Safaris and Nicholas Fox conduct luxury, four wheel drive day tours from Port Douglas to the oldest rain forest on Earth. We carry a maximum of just six guests per day, travelling exclusively in the comfort of a spacious, late model Toyota 200 series Land Cruiser, featuring individual air conditioning and equal legroom throughout. We’ll cross The Daintree River by cable ferry on our way to the Jindalba board-walks. Enjoy a morning tea of home-made muffins and locally grown tea or freshly ground plunger coffee. See two World Heritage sites meet as the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef touch at Cape Tribulation's beach. Take advantage of a true locals knowledge and enjoy our secret, sparkling swimming hole. Savour frosty, tropical delights at The Daintree Ice Cream Company while you stroll through their beautiful gardens. Then, stop for a photo, at the scenic Alexandra Lookout. Lunch, well sit back relax and dine, a la carte, in any weather at The Daintree Tea House Restaurant. Enjoy a choice of Chicken, Beef, Vegetarian and allergy free meals or perhaps you'd like to try our tropical speciality, Barramundi. All dishes are served with salad, chips, fresh bread and a large array of tropical fruit. Your host will talk you through all the exotic locally grown delicacies as you enjoy your meal. Next we take you to The Daintree River Cruise Centre for a one hour guided wild life spotting cruise on the Daintree River. Perhaps we'll spot one of our giant Saltwater Crocodiles. With World Heritage Accreditation and over twenty year’s local experience, Daintree Safaris knows how to show you the best of our beautiful region in comfort and style.

Nicholas gave us an incredibly informative guide to the rainforest - his knowledge of the rainforest is truly astounding. We did find, however, that a large proportion of the tour was sat in the car rather than actually walking - I guess that's simply the nature of the rainforest area. Also, though Nick did provide great information, we did find... More

Very educational, thorough, well-organized tour. Nicholas was able to show us many wildlife animals in their natural environment. Really cool! Great tour for kids too! We had a great time. Also had an excellent gourmet lunch.Nicholas really knows his nature, animals/wildlife, and rainforest information adequately.

Couldn't have had a better day -- Nick was prompt, attentive, extremely well schooled in the rain forest, local culture and much more. He was willing to modify his original itinerary to give us a second long walk in another part of the Daintree -- we got so much better an understanding of the amazing and unique resource that Daintree...

What a great day with Nick at Daintree Safaris! The day was well planned with walk in the rainforest, swim, morning tea, and really delightful lunch. Nick is so knowledgeable about the rainforest creatures (cassowaries!), plants and local area. Really interesting for us and our 3 older teenage boys. A special day during our visit to Port Douglas.

We were fortunate enough to take a private charter with Nicholas through the Daintree Rainforest. Nicholas has a wealth of knowledge as well as enthusiasm for all of the plants and animals. We even came across a Cassowary and his 3 chicks in the wild!! We would highly recommend Daintree Safaris for any of your tours and give a strong... More

We had the pleasure to go on a trip with Nicholas. This guy is a walking Wikipedia and more than happy to patiently listen to and answer all your questions about the rainforest. The low pace of the trip and the eagle eye of Nicholas resulted in seeing the most incredible and camouflaged creatures of the forest. Guaranteed you would... More
