From there you hit the Red Centre Highway in your hire jeep and take your own time getting down to Kings Canyon, where the ultimate glamping experience awaits. Your luxury tent sits in the heart of the outstanding natural beauty of Kings Canyon. You will bask in the light of a million stars as you sit on your private decking that looks out to nothing but the finest nature.

When we put this trip together we focused on the idea of creating an experience, rather than just a great trip. We wanted you to feel that you were part of something bigger, something amazing as you travel through one of the most incredible natural landscapes in the world.


Surrounded by the deep red landscape from the moment you start your trip, we wanted to combine luxurious stays with an exploration of the most intensely stunning sacred sites in Australia. Genuinely, there is nothing in the world that compares to standing staring at the silent beauty of Uluru or Kata Tjuta.


For years to come, you will be able to close your eyes and transport yourself instantly back there. Kings Canyon is overwhelmingly beautiful and the luxury campsites bring you closer to nature while allowing you every amenity you could wish for. 


This self-drive trip showcases the heart of Australia in all its glory. After touching down in Uluru, you will collect your Rav4 (or equivalent) and make your way to your stunning accommodation in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. After time discovering this region, jump on the Red Centre Highway and head up to Kings Canyon for an outdoor experience like no other. And to finish, a wonderful drive across to Alice Springs, where after one more night in luxury, you drop off your car at the airport and head onwards.
