Thumbs up Wanigela, Oro Province Paradise!

Tufi/Siu Village and Wanigela Trip.

WE RECENTLY HAD THE TIME OF OUR LIVES. WE FLEW AIRLINES PNG FROM PORT MORESBY TO TUFI, OVER-NIGHTING THERE AND THEN CATCHING A BANANA BOAT FROM TUFI TO SIU VILLAGE, WHICH WAS ABOUT TWO HOURS SOUTH. BANANA BOATS LEFT EVERY DAY. THERE WERE A FEW VERY SAFE PLACES TO STAY IN TUFI.

WE STAYED OVERNIGHT AT SIU VILLAGE, BEFORE HEADING OFF (IN OUR BANANA BOAT HIRED FROM TUFI) TOWARDS WANIGELA............SEE OTHER POSTING FOR SIU VILLAGE.


AT WANIGELA, WE HAD TO WALK FOR AN HOUR OR SO, FROM THE BEACH, TO THE HOMESTAY HOUSE.........WITH OUR LUGGAGE...........A COLD DRINK WAS MOST WELCOME! (YOU CAN FLY IN BY PLANE TO RIGHT WHERE THE HOMESTAY IS) TO BE MET BY THE GORGEOUS LISA & DAVID. THEY WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO MAKE OUR STAY FANTASTIC, PNG STYLE. THEY PROVIDED BEAUTIFUL MEALS..........BUNS, RICE, LOCAL VEGETABLES, FRUIT, MEAT, CHICKEN...........AMAZING FEASTS FIT FOR A KING/QUEEN.


WE VIEWED CROCODILES, WATCHED THE LAPITA STYLE POTTERY BEING MADE,WALKED TO THE OLD RUBBER, COPRA AND COCOA PLANTATION.....BATHED IN THE BEAUTIFUL STREAMS......SAW BUTTERFLIES, BIRDS OF EVERY KIND, TRIED LOTS OF HERBAL POTIONS, WORKED FOR A FEW HOURS IN THE LOCAL HOSPITAL, WENT TO THE MARKETS, PURCHASED TAPA CLOTH AND SO MANY OTHER INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCES.


COMMUNICATION, FROM OUTSIDE PNG, MAY TAKE HOURS OR DAYS, TO GET TO LISA AND DAVID, AS THE CONTACT PHONE NUMBER ETC BELONGS TO EITHER THE AIRLINES OR THE OWNER OF TUFI DIVE RESORT........AND THEY THEN RADIO LISA & DAVID........................BUT IF YOU HAVE TIME ON YOUR HANDS.............HAVE PATIENCE...........& YOUR STAY WILL BE ABSOLUTELY TOTALLY WORTHWHILE..........& VERY REASONABLY PRICED.

"Homestay Wanigela"


Price: K50pp per night
