Bird Watching- East New Britain is home to diverse species of Birds. In the past we’ve taken the birders to the “Wild Dog” mine where the surrounding environment is untouched. For this visit, we organized three Toyota Land cruisers with drivers and a guide. At the site an advance arrangement with the land owners had them waiting to allow the birders to the site. Two hours of bird watching at the site had been an exciting experience for many, especially when seeing exotic birds only found in the region. 1.5 hours drive each way past many villages is an added experience to the adventure as you will be able to see how the locals live.
Customized excursions–itinerary can be drawn according to guests’ requirement.
