Established in 1986, Exceptional Kangaroo Island offers all-inclusive small group and private tours promising good food, good wine and wildlife in the wild. We are founder members of Australian Wildlife Journeys – the premier sustainable wildlife encounter network.
Tours depart daily (except Christmas Day) from Kingscote, American River and surrounds. Small group tours have 2-12 guests and a second guide if the group exceeds six. Our guests love the combination of nature and hospitality – immersive and sustainable wildlife encounters with delicious, locally sourced food and wines served al fresco.
Our fleet is custom-built to suit Island roads and driven by experienced Island guides, with a conversation, not a commentary. We have twice won “Best Australian Experience” and regularly feature in Top 10 Australian wildlife and luxury tour operator rankings. We have earned an annual TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence since 2013 and maintained Advanced Ecotourism Accreditation for over 20 years.
We package with a suite of accommodation providers to provide you with flexible options. Our tailor-made experiences focus on family vacations, wildlife safaris, farm-gate experiences, wineries, multi-mode active adventures, distilleries, photography, private art studio visits, birding, and even connecting with wildlife researchers.
