Ambunti Lodge

The only hotel on this part of the mighty Sepik River, Ambunti Lodge offers basic accommodation but is the best option for those undertaking the three-day canoe trip, which takes you into the heart of authentic Papuan life and culture.

Electricity comes from a generator which goes off at 22:00hrs and comes back in the morning. Rooms are small and beds have mosquito nets. En suite bathrooms have flush toilet, cold water shower (very refreshing in the heat) and air-conditioning in each room (limited hours).

Ambunti Lodge is the only accommodation in the area apart from bush-material guesthouses in the villages which are even more basic.

Facilities

Private facilities, dining room, lounge, bar, air-conditioning (restricted hours)

If you would like to experience real village life first hand, spend a night or two in a local village hut during the canoe trip. A torch is essential and a battery-operated personal fan may be helpful for humid nights. For a touch of comfort at the start and, especially, the end of a three-day Sepik River trip, choose to stay a night or two at the Wewak Boutique Hotel by the sea.

There should never be less than three nights in this sensational location [Ambua Lodge] with a superb climate (hot during the day and cool at night) with very good food, and seeing the amazing Huli Wigmen with their outstanding head-dresses.
