Can anyone advise me a good tour operator for trekking along Kokada Trail?
There are a few trekking companies who can organise the Kokoda Trek for you, it’s worth doing a bit of research though. (more than just google)
Make sure the company you chose has good access to communications (ie satellite phones etc) as well as are aligned to a good emergency assistance company. I say this because having worked for an organisation that arranged up to 5 evacuations out of PNG per day, we saw so many cases that could have had different outcomes if the trekking company was better equipped. Some of the trekking companies also have medically trained guides, but of course you pay for the privilege of this.
Kokoda Trek and Kokoda Trail are two companies I have come across in the past that “seemed” ok. Having not sited them myself though, I can’t say with any level of confidence that they are!
I spent a lot of time in Papua New Guinea for work, it’s a beautiful place but one you need to take a lot more caution with. Safety issues, non-regulated industries etc mean your research should be spot on. Don’t leave things to chance. about 6 years ago
