NB: This program needs a minimum of 8 pax to operate as an escorted tour (tour leader throughout). The program will operate without an escort (local guides will meet you at each destination) if the minimum numbers are not reached. We will confirm if it will operate as an escorted tour in May 2017 as currently we are still selling spaces.
The Discoverer is a 11 day/10 night fully escorted program, providing a unique opportunity to discover the culture and ecosystems of the world's second largest island New Guinea. Papua New Guinea is a veritable smorgasbord of colour, culture and excitement. The highlight of the Discoverer program is attendance at the famous Mount Hagen Cultural Show, a world famous cultural gathering of many of the opulently decorated cultural groups of this incredibly diverse land.
