Safari Culture On Australia’s Kangaroo Island

South Australia’s Kangaroo Island offers a true escape into the country’s untouched wilderness. It’s a place where small businesses work together, beaches are pure white and litter-free and innovative menus are crafted based on sustainably-sourced ingredients. Moreover, it’s a place where locals don’t let big business get the best of them and keep their land relatively pure where wildlife can roam free. I would like to thank Exceptional Kangaroo Island for lending me the following photographs, as well as showing me around during my visit to this beautiful paradise. Instead of having pre-set itineraries, the company tailors tours to the client’s interests.

My trip to Kangaroo Island was sponsored by the South Australian Tourism Commission. I was not required to write about the trip and was not compensated for this post. All opinions are my own.
