It is difficult to describe how wonderful and unique country is Papua New Guinea, and especially to put in words the first feelings and impressions to arrive and find one of a kind and so different world from what one has seen and lived so far.
Me and my friend, we went together on this two weeks trip and the first week we spend on the Sepik River, East Sepik province, guided by Susan Baker and the guys from PNG Frontier Adventures - Chris, his wife Domenika, George and Ronny. They guided us on this expedition with love and great care, always were there for us and made this trip unforgettable and unique. We spend the first night in Tongujam village, honoured to attend their first festival - Bilum festival celebration on the next morning. Then we've been escorted to the Crocodile festival in Ambunti, where we've seen many of the tribes with their traditional clothing, dances, rituals and traditions, and everyting because of the impeccable organisation and care of our great team of guides. After the festival we went to another village - Kanganaman, where we spend 3 more nights and during the days we have visited a few more nearby villages - Palim bay and Caminabit(I'm not sure if the spelling of the last two is right). In Caminabit you can find a small shop with wonderful crafts, jewelry and artifacts, all handmade by the locals.
I cannot put in words how amazing and lovely all the people from the Sepik River are!! Tongujam people, Kanganaman people- where we spend most of the time, they recieved us as brothers and sisters and gave everything to make us feel at home and one with them. I had the most wonderful time shared with PNG frontier adventure people, all the locals and their lovely kids, and not on a last place the fellow travelers from our group.
I heartily recommend to everyone who is looking for a unique and exclusive way of traveling with lots of unexpected and remarcable moments to visit Sepik River.
Papua New Guinea is an astonishing land, unforgettable and extraordinary, place where you will be back!
