Papua New Guinea (PNG) was one of the last inhabited places on Earth to be explored. Travelers to this wild and beautiful island nation are in store for plenty of surprises: a country of extraordinary natural beauty, wildlife and astonishing cultural diversity. With an incredible 750 separate languages still spoken, the country has tribal cultures as diverse as its flora and fauna. Scuba diving, trekking, beaches, river cruises and rafting, jungles, animal and bird watching, saltwater fishing, tribal cultures, cave exploration and orchids are the main attractions of PNG.

Papua New Guinea is a veritable smorgasbord of colour, culture and excitement. Perhaps the best way to wutness all these elements is to attend one of the cultural shows. The shows bring together singsing groups from all over the country in an amazing once in a lifetime experience.

Papaua New Guinea is recommended only for flexible, seasoned travelers interested in excellent scuba diving or primitive cultures. We do not recommend the country to inexperienced travelers, those who require world-class hotels or anyone whose trip would be ruined by mosquitoes, heat, humidity, delays or schedule changes. Organized tours are highly recommended for all but the most adventurous visitors who have plenty of time.

PLEASE NOTE: The province of Hela has faced problems post the massive earthquake in February 2018. Trans Niugini Tours, with reluctance, has decided to suspend the operations of Ambua Lodge (Tari) into 2019. For itineraries including Ambua Lodge, an alternative will be suggested as Trans Niugini Tours revises all their current itineraries for presentation. Please speak with an Aspire expert.
