Tribes of Papua New Guinea
8 DAYS CLASSIC PAPUA NEW GUINEA
Start in Port Moresby, with the National Museum and Nature Park providing a fitting introduction to your trip. Move on to Tari where you will be based at award-winning, eco-friendly Ambua Lodge set in a spectacular mountain landscape. Meet the flamboyant Huli Wigmen, with their extraordinary headgear. Take a charter flight down to the Sepik River, where you will be based at the wonderfully remote Karawari Lodge, a fine example of rustic comfort in the middle of the steamy lowlands. Learn about the painful rite of passage of crocodile scarification. Take another chartered flight back to the highlands, and settle in to the breathtaking Rondon Ridge, set above the town of Mt Hagen. Go on nature walks and meet even more intriguing tribes like the Polga Mudmen and the Chimbu Skeleton Men. Extend your trip to Rabaul to encounter the Baining fire dancers, view the active Tavurvur stratovolcano and its hot springs, and search for the past in the World War II wrecks.
