Hi Fiona,

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 
look at.

Hope he has a great trip.
