“See Birds of Paradise and Huli Wigmen with friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

For PNG standards this a very nice accommodation (especially in this price range) made from bush materials. It is locally owned and gives you a typical Niugini feeling with it. The common area with the fireplace is decorated with traditional items of the owner Steven Warili and just outside you have an amazing view over the stunning countryside which is almost the same that top end travelers enjoy a few minutes walk uphill at close Ambua Luxury Lodge. Local birding tours and trips to the culturally rich area with its Huli Wigmen can be individually arranged for your needs.
We started walking trips to the surrounding area (early in the morning!) and saw a few birds of paradise and other species. We would highly recommend bringing binoculars if you are looking for birds! We also saw the blue bird of paradise on its display tree (high up) maybe 30 minutes walk from the Lodge.
As the operators are from the area, they speak the Huli language and can help you to communicate with the people at the local market, which is about 1 hour walk away. Cheap public motor vehicles also travel the way to the Tari gap and to Tari town itsef.
The rooms were basic with a bed and a shelf. It is wise to bring your own mosquito net as insects will be attracted by the light at night. There is a generator operating for a few hours a night, which is enough to charge your camera and phone. The shared bathroom is facilitated close to the rooms and the common area and have 2 flush toilets and 2 simple showers that can spray you with hot water if you tell the staff to start the boiler in advance. The provided meals are nice. You can expect rice with egg and greens as well as chicken and fresh fruit from the local market for dessert. We enjoyed our three day stay a lot and would have stayed longer if we have had the time.

Room Tip: Bring a mosquito net
