Having visited North Queensland twice before, we looked hard for a tour we hadnt done before and were recommended by many tour shops to do the Wilderness Eco Safaris with naturalist guide "Steve", and we weren't disappointed !!
having done the "regular" Cape Tribulation 4wd tours before (which btw didnt do any real off-road and was very crowded), this safari, which only has 7 people maximum, took us into areas of the world heritage rainforest where the other tours dont go. I can say its the "genuine article" and travelling on old pioneer trails over mountain tops in the jungle was awesome, where we also saw the most amazing and unspoilt rainforest ever, with the largest trees we didnt see on the other tours and some plants that have been around since b4 the dinosaurs. Walking in the rainforest in research areas we also learnt a lot and learnt of the poisonous stinger trees and saw the Tarzan vines.
Lunch was great in a nice peaceful setting by a lake where we could also swim, and the home made banana muffins @ morning tea were to die for. We were also lucky to see some rare kangaroos on the day we went out and also brumbies (wild horses) and a cute lemuroid possum, and not so cute python.
If you're looking for an authentic rainforest experience in Cairns, then my recommendation is you cant miss this one. Other Cape Trib tours weve done just don't measure up.
Top marks , we had a ball, thanks for a great day Steve, we'll be telling all our friends
