Some footage from a while back ... I might have posted it before ... camera work shaky ... wanted to hit a bit higher on that 1st shot
We enjoyed the wildlife so much we are going back in February.
lol ... Kakadu in Feb = hot, humid and wet = good barra fishing = mosquitoes ...
I lived in Darwin for approx 7 years and now stay in Brisbane ... the build up and wet season became tooooo much ... lol
Hope you enjoy
I hear you ... difficult to explain to someone else what 44 celcius + 100% humidity feels like ... especially for extended periods of time ...
How do you get there ... by air? ... the roads in Kakadu would be inaccessible that time of year with all the monsoon rains
Yes, they certainly can take a pounding.
As for mosquitoes, I work all day long with a upper body head net. I bought a can of bug spray at the place we rented in Kakadu and it cost almost $30.00.
We are going to a wedding in Australia for my nephew, might as well explore your great stomping grounds while there.
Seems you are geared !
Been living in Brisbane for the past +12 months ... during my stay in Darwin I hunted 6-7 times per year (according to my wife it was more) in Arnhemland.
Recently decided to start the safari business so I will only visit during the dry season for hunting ... I do miss the bush out there, but not the build-up/wet season weather ... lol
I might have to put one of those brutes on my bucket list!
Unfortunately I cannot help you with NZ, however buff hunting (incl boars & wild oxen) end of June is not a problem.
Just to give you an idea of the of the Northern Territory (NT) ... it is a state/territory of Australia larger than e.g. South Africa or Namibia with an estimated population of only 250K ... so it is a vast and largely untouched wilderness where animals roam free. We hunt in an area (within NT) called Arnhemland.
If you were to do research on google and type in Kakadu National Park, Katherine Gorge, Arnhem Land, Litchfield, etc. and go to google images you will get an idea what it looks like.
Thanks & Regards Eugene
