Adventure Proposal Papua New Guinea
We have an exhilarating opportunity for a fortunate group of six – eight passengers on a luxurious motor yacht. Papua New Guinea is a renowned colorful equatorial wonderland. Positioned 100 miles north of Australia, it is part of the second largest island in the world after Greenland. It is also the highest tropical island with 70% of it being cloaked in dense tropical forests.
Our Expedition Leader is a sophisticated PhD who has been on expeditions to track tigers in the Sumatran jungle, anthrax on the Etosha plain, lived with seals in the Southern Ocean, and uncover desert vipers in the Middle East. His work with award-winning documentary teams from the BBC, Discovery Channel, and National Geographic have put him up close and personal with some of the world’s most dangerous creatures-if it bites, stings, crawls, or swims he has been at its pointy end. The Captain and local cultural specialists are world class. I’ve traveled with the Expedition Leader and I would trust him on any Journey.
