Sepik River Scouting Expedition

The Sepik is one of the world’s great river systems. Meandering 1,100 km through Papua New Guinea, this mighty river has nurtured tribes and cultures for millennia. With dense terrain making this part of the world largely inaccessible by road, the river provides access to villages and towns along its course. You'll encounter a truly wild and unspoilt land – increasing in magnificence the further upriver you go.

Highlights include:

  • Follow the barak (canal) to Murik Lakes. You may see traditional drama performed, or purchase carvings at Mendam.
  • Be welcomed with a “sing sing”in the village of Bien
  • Kambaramba – a village built over the water
  • You may have your face traditionally painted at Tambanum
  • Witness a “sing sing” and village demonstration at Kambinambit. You may see the sacred flutes played.
  • Explore Chambri Lakes and see vibrant bird and animal life
  • Visit Aibom – famous for its pottery
  • See the largest Haus Tambaran at Kanganaman and view carvings and sacred flutes. You may see the famous garamut drums being played by village elders at Pelambei.
