PNG has a famously rich avifauna. 708 bird species, including 578 land and freshwater species have been identified.
Our wilderness lodges are strategically located in PNG’s most exciting birding areas. A review of each lodge’s birding list makes it clear that an itinerary built around our lodges will rate amongst a birder’s top trips.
Renowned Ambua Lodge has long been the favoured home base of film crews and leading naturalists including Sir David Attenborough. Seeing the trailing white tail feathers of the Ribbon-tailed Astrapia is just one of the many thrills Ambua’s guests may experience.
A stay at Karawari Lodge, overlooking a tributary of the Sepik River, is an opportunity to spot a wildly diverse range of birds from the Twelve-wired Bird of Paradise to the Victoria Crowned Pigeon to a litany of lorikeets, cockatoos and parrots.
Our newly opened Lake Murray Lodge is home to over 50% of the New Guineas total bird population. In addition to a host of migratory birds, several birds of paradise special, pelicans, hornbills, eagles, parrots and numerous other birds have been sighted.
