Helicopter over Arkaba and picnic on your own mountain top...

At Arkaba, safari days are designed by dedicated conservationists who are all about sharing stories, wildlife and this 60,000-acre private outback Australian wilderness. Exploring this ancient landscape by helicopter, hugging Wilpena Pound and the Elder mountain range and then swooping down into Brachina and Edeowie Gorges is quite frankly just exciting. And the best thing of all, you land on a private mountain top for a private picnic with views to the North of Wilpena Pound, east to the Chace Range, west to the Elder and Red Range and south to Yappala and Yourambulla Ranges. On a clear day you may even spot Lake Torrens to the west, the second largest salt lake in Australia.
