The camp features 15 safari-style suites tucked away in this ancient landscape and offering guests a unique “glampsite” in an exclusive area of the Flinders Ranges National Park. Ikara Safari Camp is set among river red gums, native pines, and wildlife, while secluded from Wilpena Pound Resort’s main accommodations. Each tent is made from insulated canvas and is roughly 14 ft. by 20 ft. in size, and includes king beds with bedding, bedside tables and lamps, a gas fire heater and overhead fan, and en-suite bathrooms with a vanity and shower. Guests can take in the sunsets and rock formations of the Flinders Ranges on the tent’s front deck. There’s also a separate dining area at Wilpena Pound Resort that caters exclusively to Ikara guests.
Guests can take part in scenic flights over Wilpena Pound rock formation, sunrise hot air balloon rides, guided hikes and walking expeditions, and 4WD tours throughout the rugged gorges in the national park. There are also trails for guests to go mountain biking or hiking while exploring the wildlife unique to the area, such as red kangaroo, emu, or yellow-footed rock wallaby.
The ideal time for travelers to visit Flinders Ranges is between May and October. Ikara Safari Camp is located approximately 275 miles north of South Australia’s capital, Adelaide. Rates start at $230 per night.
