Southern Ocean Lodge

Exceptional Kangaroo Island

The Lodge works closely with Kangaroo Island’s multi-award winning, internationally renowned team of expert guides led by Craig Wickham at Exceptional Kangaroo Island. Informed with an impressive knowledge of Kangaroo Island’s natural heritage and great tales of the island’s history, ‘EKI’ guides lead the Southern Ocean Lodge signature half-day ‘Wonders of KI’ tour to the vast wilderness Flinders Chase National Park and have an uncanny skill at spotting wildlife including koalas, kangaroos and echidnas amongst the dense scrub along the way.

EKI also offer a range of full day private tours to Southern Ocean Lodge guests seeking a tailored, private experience, a specialist itinerary or to explore further afield. Key itineraries include an Epicurean Adventure, an exploration of the North West Wilderness and a day at the galleries for Art Lovers. A private tour with EKI may be arranged during a stay, or in conjunction with an arrival or departure from Kangaroo Island.

An EKI tour can also link with specialist Kangaroo Island operators for a KI Marine Tour, take in the vineyard and cellar door at the renowned Islander Estate or enable dedicated insight into the lovable but spiky echidna by way of an afternoon spent with a wildlife researcher. EKI tours offer a first-hand, unforgettable encounter of Kangaroo Island. For enquiries regarding EKI experiences, please Contact Us.
