    Karawari Lodge, on a ridge overlooking the Karawari River, in the Sepik region, is a time-warped mixture of pre-technological and technoloical architecture - is the perfect base for some old-fashioned jungle, river and village exploration. You are in the middle of Arambak country-- locals pole dug-out canoes, the drums throb, the wild birds call, and, traditional village lifestyles continue largely unchanged."Somethinglike a National Geographic expedition. No roads. Thick jungle. Locals poling dugouts. Crocodiles.

    You wind up at the surprising Karawari Lodge. All kinds of comfort amidst a thousand miles of jungle." - Robin Kinhead, Chicago Tribune. Comprehensive lists of bird and orchid life of the Karawari area are available online.
