a huge impact on the future of the natural environment.

up price ex Perth, Western Australia will be Au$7085 p/p twin share.

I know this is not leaving much time to get organized, but Madagascar is calling.

Two positions are taken and we are now going ahead with this tour, so we have three spots
still available.

AN INTRODUCTION TO PNG'S WILDLIFE 2019


Description of photo hereWhether your interests are birds, reptiles, invertebrates or plants, this little foray to
Papua New Guinea will surely please.

After working our way up from Cairns via Port Moresby, we will land on a little bit of
paradise called New Ireland in the Bismarck Archipelago. This is home of some
great endemic bird species and a nice selection of herps. The most notable being
the Bismarck Ringed Python and the once thought to be extinct Varanus douarrha.
We know that this monitor is far from extinct, as we saw several on our last visit. 
The bulk of our five day stay will be spent at the beatifully located Rubio Plantation Retreat.

The next leg of our trip involves a short flight down to Kimbe on New Britian,
the largest island in the Bismarck Archipelago. This island also has it's fair share of
endemic species and we will do our utmost to pick up as many as possible in the
three days available to us.


The final leg will set us down on the upper reaches of the Fly River in Western Province, a very different part of the world.
Two nights of this time will be spent at the remote Ekame Wildlife Lodge.

This tour will cost $6180 p/p, based on five participants. This covers all expences ex Cairns, North Queensland. Exceptions are Visa,
travel insurance, personal effects and alcoholic drinks.
As always, the cost for this tour can be split into three payments and a AU$2095 deposit will secure your spot on this great little adventure.

Tour will run from the 19th August to the 1st September 2019. Should we not be able to make up the numbers, we can still go ahead
with three participants, but the cost will be $7655 p/p.
