Past Clientele Testimonies regarding the PNG Highlands and Sepik River.

"Many thanks for the trip into Highlands region. I really enjoyed meeting all the clans there and Charlie and Justin were so kind, helpful and above all, intent on making my trip as interesting and enjoyable as possible. I think you did an excellent job in trying to organize the best cultural visits in the time available and apart from the hiccup in Tari, the accommodation was most satisfactory considering the general standards in PNG. Most of all I loved the welcome and genuine kindness of all the people I met on my trip and complete strangers who made me feel really at home.." -Jane O'Brien- England.

"I very much enjoyed the trip to Wewak and the Sepik River area. Seeby was very helpful and it was so interesting to see how the river people live in comparison to the Highlands. A complete contrast in every way, including the weather (wow, very hot and humid), so I do feel that I have seen some of the most striking and vivid areas of PNG in the space of two short weeks." - Jane, Ireland.
