Papua New Guinea Luxury Travel
Witness Authentic Local Custom and Stunning Biological Diversity
The challenge for this country, independent since 1975, has been to unite some 750 formerly isolated tribes into one single nation. But for travellers, the diversity of ancient peoples and traditions is part of its allure. Experience the world-renowned Mount Hagen Cultural Show, a dazzling spectacle of tribal song, dance and pageantry. During a three-day cruise on the Karawari, a remote tributary of the mighty Sepik River, take a full-day excursion to the secluded villages of Black Water Lake and enjoy a picnic on the banks of the river, watching as local men gather on their clan’s bench, children paddle canoes to school and women fish with hand lines. Meet the Highland people of Tari, who employ body decoration and face painting along with decorative wigs, flowers and moss. Drive through lush farm land and coffee plantations in the shadow of dramatic mountains peaks, alongside pristine rainforests, sparkling lakes and a stunning array of colorful, exotic birds.
With a history that goes back 40,000 years and traditions that have remained unchanged for centuries, the time to see Papua New Guinea is now.
