Papua New Guinea, one of the last great unexplored lands, remains a place of great wonder and mystery. A country of over four million people, it is home to exotic animals, extraordinary art and flamboyant warriors. A wondrous place for intrepid travelers who wish to discover unique colorful cultures and take a step back in time. Must-sees include meeting the Huli Wigmen, a Southern Highland tribe nearly untouched by modern civilization, and traveling the jungle waterways of the Karawari River to visit isolated Kundiman villages. Another highlight is staying in a floating Haus Tambaran (Spirit House) in the remote Sepik River region.

Papua New Guinea is for curious and adventurous travelers open to discovering a unique world. Though a stand alone destination, we suggest an en-route stop-over in Cairns, Australia.
