And of course when visitors come to their village …like us!

Your presence on our PNG trip enriched my travel
experience. The love and commitment you have for the PNG
people was so apparent-especially when we showed up at
the villages and the locals came up to you in open
arms. Thank you for sharing with us all the wonderful
aspects of their culture.
National Geographic/Lindblad is our choice of travel companies because they do
customize their staff with people who are passionate about the location and culture.
My world has been enriched because of your presence on this trip. (I let them know
this on the survey as well)…. Enjoy your holidays and continue to dazzle travelers
you share PNG with.

homesteads. The air is fresh; a gentle breeze carries the calls of unseen birds.
