PNG Mask Festival With Sepik River Canoe Safari
This 11 day / 10 night itinerary focuses on two unique locations and is perfect for those with limited time who want a taste of the cultural variety in PNG. The group will commence with a visit to Rabaul to witness the annual Mask Festival, an extravaganza of local colour, dancing and ritual performance, where tribes from outlying islands come together to meet and compete in various canoe and dance festivals culminating in the iconic Baining Fire Dance. We combine this with a visit to some seldom-visited villages along the Sepik River by motorised canoe, with a two night stay in a river settlement for a truly authentic taste of village life and culture. A concise itinerary taking you well off-the-beaten-track and seeing some of PNG’s most interesting tribes.
