NEW TOUR FOR TEMPORARY ROBINSON CRUSOES – ADVENTURE HOLIDAY ON KABAKON ISLAND
For the first time in 2018, the Australian based company “Oceania Expeditions” offers an adventure experience on a remote island off the coast of East New Britain, a province of Papua New Guinea. Guests who book the “Kabakon Survivor”, will spend four days on a south sea island during which they cater for themselves. Kabakon Island lies in the Bismarck Archipelago, a short boat ride from Kokopo and Rabaul in East New Britain. It’s uninhabited yet fertile, used by the villagers on next-door Karawara Island as their garden isle. Here, papaya, banana and pineapple grow in abundance, taro and tapioca thrive under groves of coconut palms, and the surrounding seas swarm with a rich harvest of seafood. After a first comfortable night at Kokopo Beach Bungalows, participants leave the western civilisation behind and set off to live four days in bungalows with thatched roofs and spectacular views on the ocean. Visiting villagers from Karawara will teach them the skills they need to “survive” – from learning to hunt lobster, to paddling outrigger canoes to reach the local fishing grounds. Learn from the village women how to cook in a ground oven, how to de-husk coconuts and make your own coconut milk, and discover where the scrub fowls nest to harvest their eggs. Local children will teach guests to weave mats and hats that they can take with them, while songs and stories from the elders will help them understand the customs and lores of the local people.
