For Papua New Guinea’s best high-end montane rainforest experience, Ambua Lodge offers the very best birding in New Guinea. Situated at 7,500 feet elevation on the slopes of Doma Peaks, Ambua Lodge overlooks the verdant Tari Valley, home of the fantastic Huli Wigmen.

The combination of forest, birdlife, and colorful traditional cultures promises a fantastic experience for someone looking for luxury and access to stunning birdlife and decorated people.
