NEW GUINEA ENCOUNTER 9 days / 8 nights

Imagine a country where travelers are beckoned to take pictures of the local inhabitants, where beaming smiles and waves greet the visitor, where there are numerous occasions to authentically interact with the local people and culture. Visit a wig making school, see how village life tradition is based, where time has stood still, a culture that has fascinated Margaret Mead and other anthropologists. With tourism serving only a few thousand visitors a year, Papua New Guinea provides a genuine, unspoiled access to a culture both primitive and sophisticated. The New Guinea Encounter allows the traveller with limited time the opportunity to visit remote villages and gain an insight into life as it has been for thousands of years. It gives the opportunity to encounter ancient cultures of the Karawari and Melpa Peoples. An extremely rich diversity of plants and bird life in both areas is sure to give the nature enthusiast a taste of this amazing and exotic country. This tour does not have a cruise on the Sepik.
