Indonesia Raja Ampat – Cruise Expedition

Raja Ampat, which translates as «Four Kings,» is a group of limestone karst islands that were formed from a mythical myth and continue to astound and enthrall travelers with their spectacular landscapes that conceal hidden lagoons, bays, and beaches. Raja Ampat allows travelers to choose from thousands of private hideaways while on excursions to see the most biodiverse landscapes on earth. Simply said, you witness a National Geographic moment every day.

World-class wildlife adventures may be held on land and in the water at Raja Ampat. Famous 19th-century naturalist Alfred Russell Wallace has discovered species of the bird of paradise here that are unique to this area of the planet. One of life’s most rewarding wildlife experiences is undoubtedly catching a glimpse of the ethereal beauty of Wilson’s bird of paradise and Red bird of paradise, as well as their captivating behavior. These avian marvels coexist with 350 other bird species, including king parrots and forest kingfishers.

WHAT MAKES THIS TRIP EXTRAORDINARY

  • Visit Wayag Islands, the most iconic islands in the Raja Ampat area.
  • Dive or snorkel in Cape Kri, a fantastic reef that supports a tremendous number of reef fish.
  • Explore Kabui Bay and discover remote local villages adorned with spectacular caves.
  • Visit the Nature-rich area of Dayang & Birie Island, an absolute birder paradise.
  • Get in touch with locals at Arborek Island, home of a welcoming Papuan community, and dive in search of enormous manta rays.

The Ships

Aqua Blu

Aqua Blu is a striking maritime statement with a distinguished history as the former British Naval Explorer HMS Beagle and then as the private yacht of a European aristocratic family. The Dutch yacht design guru Cor D. Rover oversaw a 2019 refurbishment that brought the ship up to world-class cruising standards. When guests step foot aboard this one-of-a-kind cruise ship, they can anticipate experiencing a distinguished sense of history and maritime progress.

Cor has artfully combined a brass-and-ivory interior motif with roomy and welcoming indoor and outdoor communal spaces, including a sun deck, inside the five-deck, 15-suite Aqua Blu.

Aqua Blu’s navy background makes it the ideal vessel to travel the vast seas of East Indonesia since it is faster, further, and more safe and comfortable. The ship has gained the highest international safety standards (RINA, SOLAS, ISM) and has Quantum Zero Speed stabilizers for the best comfort when at anchor or sailing.

The range of Aqua Blu is far superior to that of its rivals in East Indonesia. The ship allows travelers on board to experience the most diverse, enjoyable, and rewarding coastal cruise itineraries in this wild and breathtakingly beautiful corner of the world. It can go great distances in a short time and any sea state.

A 14 DAY EXPEDITION TO MEET CROCODILE PEOPLE, THE HULI WIGMEN, SEARCH FOR BIRDS OF PARADISE, JOIN THE BIGGEST TRIBAL GATHERING IN THE WORLD, AND MUCH MORE FROM US$ 11 392.50 EXCLUDING FLIGHTS

Itinerary in Brief

Day 1 

Arrive in Port Moresby

Arrive today in Port Moresby. After clearing immigration and customs and exiting the arrival lounge, you will meet our representatives and check-in at the Airways Hotel, the best hotel in Papua New Guinea, located just 5 minutes from the airport.

Use the rest of the day to rest and recover from your flight. Later, join your Senior Expedition Leader for a cocktail, a complete expedition briefing, and orientation followed by dinner at the hotel’s poolside restaurant.

Overnight at Airways Hotel Dakota Wing (D)

Day 2

Charter Flight to Karawari – Embark Sepik Spirit

Transfer from your hotel to Jackson’s airport for your flight to Mt Hagen. At Mount Hagen, connect with your private chartered flight to Karawari, an amazing morning flight over the highlands that later descends to the tropical rain forest of the Karawari River. Upon landing, we embark on jet boats for travel to the junction of the Karawari and Krosmary Rivers, where we plan to arrive in time for lunch on board the Sepik Spirit. This river cruiser will be our home for the next 3 days and nights. Inspired by the spirit houses of the native tribes, this is a small, intimate, and unique-looking ship, and the only one that allows for exploration of these very remote waterways.

Overnight at Sepik Spirit (B, L, D)

Day 3 & 4

Explore the Head Waters of the Sepik River

We will use these two days to explore, on our jet boats, the remote villages found on the headwaters of the Sepik River. Among the people we meet will be the Crocodile People, who were formerly cannibals. These people scar themselves in a ceremonial process to honor their totem, the crocodile, and also their ancestors. We will even be invited into the most sacred of their places – their spirit houses. If you are an art lover, you will also find traditional art to add to your collection.

Needless to say, birdwatching is fantastic both on the river and in the areas surrounding the clan villages, and we will hopefully see more birds of paradise.

Overnight at Sepik Spirit (B, L, D)

Day 5 & 6

Explore the Nature and Cultures of Karawari

After breakfast, you will be transferred to Karawari Lodge. Karawari Lodge, poised on the ridge overlooking the river and jungle-clad Sepik Basin, is a world entirely unique. The real fascinations here are the people and how they live with the land and how it molds their lives. They still live as they have for generations – rituals, sing- sings, storytelling, food gathering, and preparation. With Karawari’s carefully planned cultural program, daily visits in riverboats are made to selected villages allowing one the opportunity to be able to observe village life and customs, participate in typical daily activities and see traditional ceremonies. We will visit remote jungle waterways where we will find huge lichen and vine – festooned trees, masses of brilliant flame flowers, and a profusion of orchids. The soft dawn glimmers on these waterways and the vast plain erupts with a myriad of birds – the raucous jungle music. Dug-out canoes glide close by the river banks – stilt villages suddenly spring insight along the flowing waters. Here we will see the man and the environment as it has been for thousands of years. We also have the possibility to birdwatch for the Twelve Wired Bird of Paradise!

Overnight at Karawari Lodge (B, L, D)

Day 7 

Chartered flight to Tari – Home of the Huli

Among the highlights of this expedition are the small aircraft flights that will allow us to observe the mountains and forests of Papua New Guinea from the air. After breakfast, we will embark on our first flight towards the Tari Highlands, the territory of the Huli Wigmen.

Depending on the weather, we will either land at Ambua Lodge or at Tari Town. The latter landing will necessitate a drive of 1 1⁄2 hours to the lodge.

The Ambua Lodge is located at 7,000 feet in the Tari Gap region and borders on pristine mid-montane rainforest grading into the valley grasslands. Spring-like temperatures are the norm, as well as magnificent views of the Tari Valley. The forest canopy, a dense mass of interlocking tree tops spreads out like a green carpet with the occasional splash of bright color to provide an exhilarating setting for venturing along the graded nature trails. You’ll have the fun of crossing traditional vine bridges and discovering secluded waterfalls. Your guide will instruct you in the ways the Huli people utilize the abundant natural resources, as well as pointing out the variety of plants and animals in the forest.

The nature walk will also increase your chances of seeing up to 13 species of birds of paradise found in the vicinity of the lodge. Birds of paradise mostly display during the late afternoon, so you may be lucky enough to see the King-of-Saxony, Stephanie’s astrapia, ribbontail astrapia, and sicklebill birds of paradise during this time period.

Overnight at Ambua Lodge (B, L, D)

Day 8 & 9

Tari, Land of the Huli and Birds of Paradise

The great Tari Basin, with its surrounding mountain slopes, is the home of the Huli clans, one of the largest ethnic groups in the Southern Highlands, and one of the most culturally intact in PNG. Only discovered by the outside world in 1935, the Huli were one of the last indigenous tribes to come under government control. Fierce in warfare and merciless to opposing clans, the Huli dig huge trenches with wooden paddles to delineate clan boundaries, control the movement of pigs, and as secret passageways for warriors during clan battles.

Renowned for their elaborate wigs decorated with everlasting flowers and bird of paradise feathers, the Huli will provide you with a unique and unforgettable cultural experience, and a journey back in time. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet and interact with these proud people and experience their traditional way of life, which is still governed by their belief in ancestral spirits and sorcery.

Our two days at the lodge will be filled with early birding excursions, both at the lodge and the Tari Gap, then visits to the Huli Wigmen until it’s time for lunch, when we will return to Ambua. Afternoons can involve nature walks, birding, or more interactions with Huli men and women. And of course, you will always be able to enjoy the amazing views and gardens of Ambua Lodge.

Overnight at Ambua Lodge (B, L, D)

Day 10

To the Highlands on a Private Flight – Nature Walk

Early morning breakfast and check out for your room. Transfer to the airport in time for your charter flight to Mt. Hagen over vast tracts of highlands grasslands, besides some of the tallest mountains in the country. This is a spectacular flight. Mount Hagen town is in the upper Waghi Valley – some of the oldest evidence of agriculture in the world. Once in Mount Hagen, enjoy a scenic drive up the mountains to the beautiful Rondon Ridge Lodge. The views and nature that surround it are simply amazing. An afternoon guided nature walk and birding tour will enable you to explore the area surrounding the Lodge grounds in search of Birds of Paradise.

Overnight at Rondon Ridge (B, L, D)

Day 11

Pre-Show Sing Sing

In preparation to the Mount Hagen Sing Sing (Show), this gathering is attended by over 100 men and women from more than 10 tribes scattered across the highlands and mainland coastal areas. While this sing sing is relatively small in comparison to others, we will be more than compensated not only by the beautiful setting, including the stunning village location, but also by the absence of crowds of tourists; this is a meaningful, friendlier, and intimate experience for all of us.

We will be able to watch the participants prepare their bilas, or traditional dress, paint their faces and bodies, and embellish themselves with bird of paradise feathers. The group will be able to mingle with the performers and take their pictures. Once the dancing begins, we will really be able to appreciate these preparations and take part in the festivities.

Overnight at Rondon Ridge (B, L, D)

Day 12

Mount Hagen Sing Sing – Back to Port Moresby

This is one of the greatest experiences of your life. After breakfast, you will be transferred from the lodge to the showground in Mount Hagen. Today you will spend the full day at the Mount Hagen Show – world-famous for its color, culture, and vibrancy. It is a truly spectacular event where 60 to 100 tribes (Thousands of participants, all dressed in traditional customs and body paintings). The diversity of the coastal, lowland and highlands sing sing groups at the Hagen show reflects the incredible diversity of Papua New Guinea’s landscape – an unforgettable experience to all the senses, and a photographer’s dream. After the show experience, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight from Mt. Hagen to Port Moresby. Upon arrival, transfer to your modern and very comfortable hotel, located just 5 minutes away from the airport.

Overnight at Airways Hotel Dakota Wing (B, L, D)

Day 13

Explore Port Moresby

After breakfast, enjoy a visit to the National Parliament Building, built in the style of a Spirit House. The National Museum will be our next stop where we will be able to see and appreciate the superb collection of artifacts collected from the country’s 800 different tribes.

Port Moresby’s beautiful Nature Park is a wonderful introduction to the flora and fauna of this island paradise. Not only will you meet some of the country’s wildlife such as cassowaries and tree kangaroos, but you will also be introduced to the park’s excellent and extensive orchid collection. Enjoy lunch at the gardens before visiting Hanuabada (“big village”) to see the collection of ramshackle houses built on stilts.

Lodgings

Airways Hotel – Port Moresby

This is the best hotel in all of Papua New Guinea. Located just 5 minutes from the airport, it not only has modern facilities but also lovely surrounding vistas. We have blocked rooms in the Bacchus Wing on the ground floor, and these are comfortable rooms with air conditioning, a safety deposit box, and modern bathrooms with all the needed amenities. The restaurants and bars on the hotel’s upper floor provide great views and the best food in the country. The Airways includes a gym and shops where fine and tribal art objects, as well as souvenirs, are available. WiFi is available in the guest rooms and lobby, but it can be slow or fail altogether temporarily.

Ambua Lodge – Tari Gap

Located at 7,000 feet in the middle of the cloud forest, Ambua Lodge not only offers beautiful common areas and fantastic food but is rightfully considered to be the best accommodation in the Tari area. The lodge staff is composed mainly of local people and is known for providing warm and friendly service. The rooms are simple, but come with electricity, electric blankets, and hot running water. There could be temporary power outages, but these do not interfere with the enjoyment of the stay, and generally service is restored quickly. The lodge gardens are simply beautiful, and the grounds and nearby nature walks provide excellent birding opportunities.

Mount Hagen – Rondon Ridge

Rondon Ridge is located 7,100ft above sea level on the fringes of the Kubor mountain range. With panoramic views of the Wahgi Valley down below, it is a great location for an exploration of the Highlands.

The lodge is a 40-minute drive from Mt Hagen town and features 24 rooms with modern en-suite bathrooms. Electricity is generated from the lodge’s own hydroelectric power plant which harnesses the power of a nearby mountain stream. There is also a bright and spacious restaurant and lounge area overlooking the forest.

Sepik Spirit – Sepik River

The Sepik Spirit is the best, and the only ship that navigates the headwaters of the Sepik River. This is a comfortable ship designed to look like a tribal spirit house and features artistic, handcrafted woodwork made by the local tribes. Air conditioning is available in all the guest rooms and the common areas. Rooms have comfortable beds, large windows, and ensuite bathrooms with hot running water. The food aboard the ship is good and the lounge cozy and relaxing. The Sepik Spirit is equipped with jet boats for exploration (please be aware that jet boat engines are loud and vibrate, so if you have sensitive ears, please include earplugs in your luggage).

Karawari Lodge – Karawari 

Perched high on the banks of the remote Karawari River, and built to resemble a spirit house, the Karawari Lodge includes an impressive collection of tribal art as well as providing beautiful vistas, especially the unforgettable, color-saturated sunsets. The lodge rooms are basic, with fans and mosquito nets. Electricity is spotty, and although it is a beautiful property, because of the rusticity of the rooms, we are staying here only one night. However, your stay will be unforgettable in a good way.
