Bamurra Plains, Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory, Australia

Set amid the rugged and beautiful landscape of northern Australia, Bamurra Plains boasts luxurious accommodations and a safari experience with some of Oz's most exotic wildlife.

You'll hear guides refer to Bamurru Plains as exemplifying "wild bush luxury", and it certainly fits. "Wild bush" because it's in a far-flung corner of the Australian wilderness, and "luxury" because they provide the kind of creature comforts you just don't expect in the middle of the savannah bush.

The star attraction at Bamurru Plains is the wildlife. On safari, you'll look for wallabies, dingos, wild pigs, water buffalo, and crocodiles. And you won't have to look very hard for the crocs. The nearby (but not too nearby) Sampan River is home to one of the largest populations on the planet.
