Follow these handy hints to increase your chances of seeing Kakadu’s abundant wildlife (while keeping yourself safe):
Early morning and sunset are the best times to spot wildlife.
Use a torch to look for nocturnal animals at night, but don’t shine strong spotlights onto sleeping critters – you wouldn’t like it either !
Look for clues showing where animals have been, particularly tracks, droppings and scratchings.
Animals are often heard before they are seen. Walk quietly, listen and watch for movement.
Use binoculars to get a closer look.
While keeping yourself safe watch out for animals crossing the roads, including lizards and snakes.
Do not approach, disturb or feed wildlife.
Pay attention to crocodile warning signs. People have been killed and severely injured by crocodiles in the park.
Snakes, pigs and buffaloes can also be dangerous. Keep well away from them.
