SAFETY and SECURITY
PNG is a mind-boggling destination for birds, wildlife, and culture, because it is one of the world’s last great unexplored frontiers. However, frontiers can be risky places, and PNG is no exception. The Australian government’s travel advice provides a good outline of the types of risks in PNG (https://www.smarttraveller.gov.au/zw-cgi/view/Advice/Papua_New_Guinea), but please check the advice of your own government.
Birding Ecotours exercises extreme care in planning and coordinating its tours, and we stay alert to and avoid areas of trouble. Birding Ecotours does require, however, that all birders on our PNG tours have a comprehensive travel insurance policy that covers PNG. We consider it a less safe destination than most, and we need potential participants on our tours to this country to be aware of this and provide us with evidence of suitable insurance cover.
