Jabiru Safari Lodge provides a sanctuary for outback wildlife in the heart of the 2000 hectare Mareeba Tropical Savanna and Wetlands Reserve. The Reserve is a nature refuge and protects over 5000 acres of Savanna woodland, including 350 acres of regionally important wetlands. Income from sustainable tourism is reinvested in the Reserve to manage and research its exceptional biodiversity, such as the breeding and reintroduction program for the critically endangered Gouldian Finch.
Jabiru Safari Lodge at Mareeba Wetlands is only an hour and a quater drive from Cairns and Port douglas.
Your lodge host and reserve guide will make you welcome and are happy to assist to make your stay memorable and rewarding. The African-style tented safari cabins blend into the open savanna woodland providing comfortable overnight accommodation.
A daily wildlife safari is available in the custom-designed, open safari vehicle allows excellent wildlife and bird life viewing touring the Reserve at a leisurely pace. Kangaroos, wallabies and emus are regularly sighted, along with many of the Reserve's 222 bird species.
The Wetland Reserve gate closes at 4.00pm. Please ring the lodge on 1800 788 755 or 07 40932514 to arrange access after this time.
