Papua New Guinea: New Britain Tour Pricing

2024 & 2025* Trip Pricing: $2,690 USD or 2,120 GBP 

for 5 Days and 4 Nights


  • The tour package includes all lodging, meals, and access fees to reserves, parks, and other birding sites.

  • Premier Bird Guide: All of our tours use the services of an excellent bird guide, often a well-recognized expert on birding in this area. Beyond our lead bird guides, these tours have a host of well-experienced local guides.

  • Top-Rated Preparation Services: We support your preparation for the trip. We provide information on the birds you will see and all the travel details, including all logistic details (arrival plans, trip itinerary, lodging details, and more), information on entry into Papua New Guinea, and information on travel health issues, packing information, and more. Most of our clients comment that our Trip Participation Guide is the best they have ever seen.

  • Transport and Airport Transfers: 

    • Local ground transport is included. This includes a large transport van for most of the trip and jeeps in some locations.

    • We also have a driver pick up the group at the airport in Hoskins at the start of the extension, and he/she will return the group to the Hoskins airport at the end of the extension tour

    • Flight cost for the round-trip flight from Port Moresby to Hoskins is not included. See the details below for a flight cost estimate.

  • Acre for Bird Conservation: As part of our efforts to support bird conservation, we purchase in the name of customers (for each booking) at least one acre (but averaging between three and four acres) of wilderness to support bird conservation. As our trip prices are often 20% (and often even a better deal) less than our competition, this does not cost you more and it is a great way to support bird conservation around the world.

  • Small-Group PricingAll the prices mentioned above are for tour groups of seven or eight participants.  We will offer reasonable small-group supplements for group sizes of 4 to 6.

  • Private and Custom Group Pricing: We are glad to provide pricing for smaller groups (including couples) or custom groups.


Possible Additions to Basic Trip Pricing:

  • Single Supplement: Single supplement is $420 USD.

  • Flights are estimated at about $400 to $600 USD.
