Join a small group of like-minded individuals on an ideal group trip and delve deep into the remote regions of PNG where others don’t go; discover unsullied tribal customs and traditional ways of life; explore some of the world’s best coral reef eco-systems; and delight in the spectacle of over one hundred tribes coming together in a colourful contest of singing and dancing, decked out in widely different flamboyant costumes and vivid face paint. There will even be the chance to spot your first bird of paradise, and if that isn’t enough, we can even arrange an extension for you to search for more of those amazing birds. You won’t find a similar group tour of such breadth and value for money to PNG anywhere else, so join us now before the 10 places fill up.

We write to express our thanks for organising another highly successful special itinerary tour [to Papua new Guinea], despite the last minute changes to our tour schedule. We were very impressed with [your representatives]. They ran a highly professional service in all aspects. The three lodges, all with their own very special character, were well run with friendly staff, clean and with good facilities. The food at all three was excellent -including the vegetarian provision. The transfer arrangements…were excellent…The excursion opportunities at all the lodges were good.. .The three contrasting locations of the lodges…enabled us to sample three very different village cultures, and their remoteness and juxtaposition to primary rainforest. . .made for excellent wildlife viewing especially for birds.. .In all our world travels so far, we have never been able to match the very special experience that combined the comfort of these individually unique lodges.. .with the opportunities to explore some of the world’s dwindling rainforest and meet its ancient and charming peoples and witness its unique birdlife. To step outside our lodge cabin [at Tari] and observe three species of birds of paradise was just magic!
