Bamurru Plains is an extraordinary bush experience on the edge of Kakadu National Park in Australia’s Northern Territory. This luxury camp exudes ‘Wild Bush Luxury’ ensuring that guests are exposed to the sights and sounds of this spectacular environment in style and exclusivity. Activities from the camp focus on exploring the surrounding country, with airboat trips on the wetlands, river cruises in search of crocodiles, bush drives and guided walks. Kakadu’s rich indigenous culture is a day trip of its own. Relaxing in camp, the wet edge pool and deck is a great spot to sit back with a cool drink and let the wildlife come to you. It is the soft touches that surprise in this remote bush location, and the understated luxury is very much in tune with the surrounding environment.
‘Wild Bush Luxury’ is a term the Bamurru Plains Camp coined to encapsulate the style of experience at Bamurru. The focus of your stay at Bamurru is in the environment around you and the wildlife and birdlife for whom it is home. Each individual safari suite is designed to blend with the surrounding bush and as such exposes guests to the sights and sounds of the bush around you, whether it is the haunting call of a Whistling Kite, the raucous cacophony from the Blue-winged Kookaburras as dawn breaks or the sound of a full grown buffalo splashing its way through the floodplains just a short distance from your bed.
The concept is simple – the focus is on key creature comforts, a supremely comfortable bed, 100% cotton linen, large soft bath towels, a high pressure shower and providing lots of space. Accommodation consists of nine spacious and naturally comfortable free-standing ensuite rooms on raised platforms viewing the flood plains. Bi fold doors open on to a large screened balcony permitting fresh air and vistas. The rooms are air-conditioned.
