PAPUA NEW GUINEA
PAPUA NEW GUINEA
For many people, New Guinea represents the ultimate birding goal.
Certainly Sir David Attenborough regards the country as ‘the greatest unclaimed prize in ornithological filming.’
His classic programme about the splendours of the birds of paradise and bowerbirds has created a widespread public interest in experiencing New Guinea at first hand.
Until recently, the island’s remoteness and lack of tourist infrastructure prevented this dream from becoming reality. Now, with the help of some well-located lodges, we can explore
the best Papuan habitats and their unique birdlife in comfort and safety.
We will divide our time between lowlands Kiunga, and highland lodges (Kumul Lodge and Ambua–Lodge) before finishing our tour in the capital Port Moresby.
This itinerary is specially prepared and should give us a wonderful opportunity to watch many species of birds of paradise, in fact 21 species and 1 subspecies.
We will also see a wide variety of pigeons and fruit-doves, parrots, cuckoo-shrikes, kingfishers and bowerbirds.
Less familiar groups include fairy-wrens, whistlers, berrypeckers, butcherbirds and honeyeaters.
We will also be able to observe some of Papua’s colorful people, with their distinctive tribal dress and customs.
There is an option of breaking the outward for return journeys in Singapore for those who wish.
This will be Ornitholidays’ sixth tour to Papua New Guinea.
