A Biodiverse Hotspot
Take to the skies in a helicopter to view the myriad of caves and waterfalls that surround the Pomio region. Alternatively, take your pick from the yacht’s water toys; drive a jet ski around the waterfalls or explore inside the caves on a paddle board. Experience exceptional reef diving in this biodiverse hotspot; home to 60% of the coral species that dwell in the Indo-Pacific. Dive deeper and explore the many submerged WWII wrecks with a local dive master.
Spend some time inside the Garu Wildlife Area inspecting spectacularly diverse birdlife, from tropical pigeons, parrots to hornbills in their natural habitat. Trek towards the nearby jungle and enjoy a relaxing bathing experience in the hidden Garu Hot River, an idyllic emerald green stream warmed by thermal volcanic springs to temperatures close to 40 degrees.
Fly via helicopter to the Asaro Valley to meet the Asaro Mudmen. Here you’ll learn about the history of black magic from real witchdoctors and enjoy a traditional Mumu feast. Observe the ceremonial ‘moka’ system, where each tribal group is constantly trying to outdo the other by hosting extravagant feasts and marvel in their use of self-decoration that plays an integral part in revealing the tribe’s relationship with other clans.
