Goroka Classic 7 Sept to 19 Sept 2017


Our “Goroka Classic Tour” is an unescorted 13 day/12 night program.   Escorted programs have the same guide throughout whereas with unescorted programs, you still have guides to assist you at each location, the only difference being that guides change at the different locations.

From Port Moresby fly across the majestic Central Ranges to Ambua Lodge in the Tari Valley - home of the flamboyant Huli Wigmen. During your 3-night stay at Ambua, you will learn all about this fascinating culture and have the opportunity to see rare Bird of Paradise on our morning birding tours.

From Tari travel by private charter aircraft into the Sepik Region, for a 3-nights aboard our “floating lodge” the Sepik Spirit.  Explore the waterways of the Sepik River and its tributaries.   From there travel to Mount Hagen, with a night at the luxurious Rondon Ridgeoverlooking the Wahgi Valley, a valley unknown to the outside world until 70 years ago.

On the Friday of the show weekend, your private charter aircraft flies you to Goroka for two full days of show festivities before traveling back to Port Moresby.
