If you really want a taste of the real Kakadu then stay here.
My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Kakadu Culture Camp and loved it! Late July was the perfect time to visit, the temperature during the night was in the low 20's which made it easy to sleep. The tents, though basic, were very comfortable. You get a proper bed (clean), a lantern, towels and soap. The shared showers and toilets are a short walk away from camp area.
The night boat cruise is a must. We saw crocodiles, snakes and birds as tracked by Freddie with his spotlight and Dougie safely driving the boat. They gave a unique experience and perspective of the wildlife that inhabit Kakadu. Freddie is a park ranger who is amongst it everyday.
We ate crocodile, kangaroo and yummy buffalo sausages for dinner. We both left KCC with a feeling of gained respect and a better understanding of the local aboriginal culture.
Andy, Jenny, Dougie, Freddie, Catherine & Jessie made us feel very welcome and were more than happy to pass on their expert knowledge of the area. Thanks!
