Davidson's, or Mt Borradaile, as it's also known, occupies a huge lease in Arnhem Land. It is blessed with multiple galleries of Aboriginal art, prolific bird and animal life, exquisite views, and a well managed camp to come home to.

Staff are welcoming, knowledgeable, helpful and kind.
Davidson's is a 5 to 6 hour drive from Darwin or a 50 minute flight over the coast and multiple river mouths.
I long to return.

I heard about Davidson's in a travel article about the best way to show children the NT.
We booked directly and they arranged our plane travel, all seamless.
The camp is nicely laid out. I was a bit concerned about lack of AC but despite being very hot during the day, the nights were only ~18 degrees and sleep was very comfortable.
The tours were fantastic. Food was great. We had a couple of different guides, which I liked, as they each had a different approach and focus.
Most of the people there were older and on the 'Outback Spirit' tour. We were lucky that there was one other family, travelling independently, so kids could have some cultural time out and muck around in the pool. I thought it was a really good balance of learning/culture, hiking, food, drinks and relaxation.

We had an absolutely magical few days at Davidson’s Arnhem Land safari.
This place is simply magical, the camp base is stunning, a beautiful pool, open air living areas and simple yet superb cabins. Going out on country is the real highlight though. Our tour guides Bridget and Scott were SO knowledgeable and obviously passionate about this land. The scenery, sunset cruise and rock art is the best we’ve seen and there’s is so much wildlife to admire. Thank you to Leigh and Di, Ray the manager, Greg the maintenance man, and in particular, Charlie the TO for welcoming us onto his country.
Don’t pass this place by when in the NT and don’t stress on the price tag, you will not regret it. This place is truly heaven on earth. So untouched and SO beautiful. Just book and visit.

The tour guides and Staff are Excellent and Ray the Manager is so obliging. Cabins and Meals are great and plenty of things to see and do in the outback. If you just want to relax you can sit any the pool and take it all in.

If you share my fascination with native rock art, you will definitely want to include Davidson's on your itinerary. The pictographs are spectacular in variety and number, spanning a considerable range of time, right up to the present. The facilities, food and service are an anomaly, considering the "safari lodge" title. Delicious meals, a swimming pool, and a nice little library for evening reading material in your spotless, nicely furnished cabin -- all nestle in a densely wooded part of western Arnhemland. Wallabies patrol the grounds, while birds innumerable, a water buffalo (and a few crocs) await your cruise across the billabong. I flew in as the sole passenger in a single engine aircraft from Jabiru and similarly out to Darwin. Friendly, obliging pilots and smooth flights. This portion of my trip was a most pleasant surprise in every way.
