During the safari, guests sample native ingredients and wild bush flavors distinct to this Australian Top End habitat and ecosystem. Known for his approach to food, in which he promotes a sustainable and respectful food culture, James shares the same beliefs with the Bamurru Plains, a Wild Bush Luxury Experience.
