Ambunti

If you like crocodiles then Ambunti is the place for you. Remote Lands will take you to face down these ancient eating machines which dwell in the Sepik River basin. Conservationists will love this part of PNG as the WWF is active here. Only 2000 people live in Ambunti and it is an unspoiled place which shows off PNG in a rarified niche. An Up-river trip along the Sanchi will delight all who dare to unlock its secrets hidden amid the tribes and villages who call her banks home.
