This was a very long day but all worth it. I chose a one day trip and I chose to upgrade to the company Kangaroo Island Odysses making more personalized trips.
We were only a nine people (I think) in the bus and we’re picked up at the ferry by Nikki our guide for the day. Nikki was so amazing and her knowledge was breathtaking, because I could hear that Kangaroo Island is her life and it means so much to her.
First we went and saw kangaroos and the way she told us to act in the nature made the kangaroos pretty safe with our presence so we got really close and got some amazing pictures.
The amazing part about having this trip was that beside seeing the obvious things on Kangaroo Island we stopped when there were exciting things to see like a little wallaby sitting by his bush on the side of the road. Beside that several of us was interested in seeing the eucalyptus distillery so we managed to squeeze a short stop in there.
We had a tea break at a breach where we saw dolphins surfing in the waves and it was so amazing.
Lunch was magical with a beautiful arranged table in a tent with open sides under the eucalyptus trees so we could see nature around us.This is actually the best food I’ve had in a long time and I get diet food which normally is more a “hungry-mans-dinner” – no not here – the girls in the kitchen had made a huge effort to give me a tasty gourmet meal and it was. Absolutely to die for.
After we went on a koala watch in the area that was private owned so we had it all to ourselves and they were so cute. Most of them was awake so again amazing pictures.
Then it was a seal time at Seal Bay and that was again an amazing experience. We had seal pups running up to us and looking at us from a short distance, seal surfing the waves, young males fighting for “fun” some were even training for mating season.
This trip was an epic experience for me and I would love to return to see more of the island and especially listen more to our guide Nikki. The weather wasn’t sunny but that was the best part because then all the animals are active in daytime instead of hiding from the heat. This was an amazing day.
