KARAWARI LODGE

Following a fabulous diving excursion in Kimbe Bay in 2003, we visited Karawari Lodge. Sitting 300 meters above the banks of the Karawari River in East Sepik Province of Papua New Guinea, the lodge overlooks an endless expanse of dense tropical lowland rainforest. Stilted villages line the edges of flooded waterways, where dug-out canoes are the primary means of transportation. The Sepiks live completely off the land, weaving fishing baskets and preparing and cooking food from the Sago Palm.
