Craig and Janet Wickham and their enthusiastic team continue a tradition of sharing Kangaroo Island’s secrets with guests which started as Adventure Charters of Kangaroo Island and morphed into Exceptional Kangaroo Island and has been under their care since 1990.

In the words of Craig and Janet:

We specialise in deluxe wildlife tours and work to create an atmosphere where you will find yourself treated as friends with tours run as a conversation not a commentary. Travel as part of a small group or chart your own private adventure to enjoy excellent food and wine and seek out wildlife in its natural habitat.

Our team arranges small group wildlife tours, luxury private touring and special interest programmes. Special interest guests have included the South Australian Museum Waterhouse Club, San Diego Zoo and the American Museum of Natural History to name a few. 

We combine travel from Adelaide, tours exploring the Island and hospitality at a choice of Island accommodations. This is complemented by fresh local produce prepared by our Executive Chef and served with fine wines. 

For travel partners (tour operators and travel agencies)  our collaborative business model brings together a team of Island businesses for an integrated package of travel, accommodation, transfers, touring and experiences as a destination management service.
We focus on delivering consistent, sustainable, high-quality experiences and take our responsibility to the environment, our guests and community seriously. This is reflected in our advanced ecotourism accreditation and operational code of ethics. We invite you to share this special place we are lucky enough to call home.
