Thank you for your advice. I don't think my friend would go alone. Need to have
some local knowledge/contact and consider many social issues when we bird in a
country not as developed and not as safe as Australia.
The good side of going through alot of troubles to bird in exotic and remote
places is one would get many good and colourful ticks.
Hope my friend and other in the group will find this infor useful.

I believe it is not sensible to bird watch in PNG on your own for safety
reasons. Organised tours know where not to go and often have armed guards
with them. To join up with one is also the most time effective way to see
the maximum number of species, especially the birds of paradise.
I would recommend going with Klaus Uhlenhut of Kirrama Wildlife Tours. The
contact is There is also a website which you should
Hope he has a great trip.
