CULTURE

SEPIK EXPEDITION 2018

This soft adventure package features a 3 nights motor canoe journey down the Sepik River from the Middle Sepik to the Lower Sepik, accompanied by an experienced Sepik River guide. Two overnights in Wewak are necessary due to flight schedules. Extra nights on the river are available, and an extension to the Wewak Island (Muschu and Kairiru).

The safari begins with a four hour road transfer from Wewak to Pagwi, the jumping off point for water transport along the Middle Sepik. The road trip is followed by a one hour motor canoe transfer to Korogo, the first of the “crocodile cult” villages. The next day the itinerary explores the traditional way of life and rituals of the crocodile cult people (Yatmul tribe) as you hop by motor canoe from Korogo to Palembei, Kanganaman and Kaminabit villages. On the third day you will call in at Mindimbit village a short distance up the Korosameri tributary, and Tambanum which is the largest village on the Sepik, then overnight further downstream at Kundima. Kundima is a quiet village on the Yuat River, another tributary. The journey ends at Angoram, a small town on the Lower Sepik, a two hour road trip from Wewak.
