Our PNG staff will then give you a brief lesson in Pidgin English to assist you with basic greetings and questions for villagers along the trail.

Your Australian trek leader will provide a safety briefing and provide an insight into the Koiari/Orokaiva cultures along the track. After dinner he will brief you on the strategic situation in New Guinea in 1942 and an overview of the Kokoda campaign.
