Reasons to Visit
Papua New Guinea
Accommodation in Papua New Guinea is one of the highlights. Places like Ambua Lodge, Rondon Ridge and Karawari Lodge are unique in location and design and as long as you can survive without a few home comforts, you will love them. Service is not the most polished as the tourism industry is still in its infancy but the food is good and plentiful.
Home to 38 (but still counting!) of the world's 43 species, these fascinating birds are known for their striking plumage, bizarre displays and mating rituals. Spotting one in the wild is a truly rewarding sight that very few people in the world are lucky enough to experience.
There are several dive spots in PNG that are regularly voted as some of the best in the world and the remote nature of these means sharing them with very few people! Large pelagics and pristine coral reefs are combined with warm clear waters - a fantastic combination for any diver.
The sight of 50 giant men dancing in front of you with bright green dresses made from grass, yellow mud painted faces, Bird of Paradise headdresses, bamboo sticks through their noses and machetes in hand is indeed as surreal as it sounds but these are the kind of encounters you can expect on a trip through PNG at festival time!
Huli Clan, Mudmen, Baining people, Tolai men, Sepik tribe, the list is almost endless with virtually every area having their own language, customs and dress. This really is the major drawcard of the country and you will come back with the most amazing memories and hopefully some impressive photos!

The capital is a low-rise city that sprawls around the coast and the hills inland. The attractive Botanic Gardens provide a good introduction to the indigenous flora and fauna and are worth a visit.

The centre is simply known as 'Town' and is close to the historic docks where there are villages built on stilts over the sea. The administrative centre is in Waigani to the north, with an excellent National Museum, Art Gallery and Parliament House, built in the style of a traditional "Maprik Haus Tambaran".
