Adventure Kokoda is owned by Charlie Lynn, an Australian who is committed to the legacy of Kokoda Track commemorating the deeds of Australian veterans and the Papua New Guineans involved in the Kokoda Campaign of World War Two.

The primary objective of Adventure Kokoda is to lead trekkers safely across the Kokoda Trail and ensure they have an enjoyable and informative experience.

They follow the entire 138 km of the original wartime trail.
wartime historical knowledge of our trek leaders is unsurpassed.
They conduct a formal commemorative Dawn Service at the Isurava War Memorial.
They are the only trekking company to explore the extensive grassland plateaus of Lake Myola 1 and 2, to visit historic wartime sites including the US Army P40 Kittyhawk fighter plane that crashed on the northern edge of the big lake.
They provide hearty cooked meals (courtesy of our trek catering crew) – and fly in fresh resupplies to our Bombers Campsite half-way along the trail.
They provide a roomy mosquito proof tent for each of our individual trekkers.
They provide more philanthropic support to villagers along the trail than all other trekking companies combined via the Network Kokoda Not-for-Profit company we established.

To achieve this goal Adventure Kokoda engages professional trek leaders, many with leadership experience in the Australian Army.

Adventure Kokoda’s operations and trek logistics are managed by Sogeri Lodge owner Warren Bartlett – a former ‘kiap’ (Australian colonial patrol officer). Sogeri Lodge is equipped with a VHF radio base station, satellite phones, landlines and back-up power. Radios and satellite phones are manned on a 24 hour basis when Adventure Kokoda groups are on the Track.

A gem in the heart of Mt. Hagen, Western Highlands Province, Papua New Guinea.
The hotel is conveniently located one minute from the airport and 10 minutes from
​Mt. Hagen city.

The McRoyal Hotel was opened in 2015 and since has grown to be ranked first in hospitality and comfort among other hotels in Mt. Hagen. The hotel is 100% locally owned thus giving it the homely feel. Our staff are warm and always ready to serve you and we boast a spacious and luxurious restaurant that will make you, your family and friends enjoy local food in style; not forgetting our homegrown coffee brew that goes well with the mystic yet pleasant weather of Mt. Hagen.
For business travelers, to tourists, to families, the McRoyal Hotel provides for everyone to enjoy. We offer:

First and foremost, we are a small company and plan to keep it that way. 21 years ago, in 1994, we (Ian Green and Fiona Dunbar) started Greentours, from the back bedroom of our flat in Norfolk, where we had both been at University studying Ecology, with one computer and a new fangled phone/fax machine. We still have customers travelling with us who came with us on in our first year, or indeed on our first tour!

Ian, who had already been leading and organising wildlife tours for other companies, noticed a yearning on the part of many of his customers. Those on birding holidays rather wanted to stop and look at the butterflies and flowers that were being passed by, and customers on butterfly trips were covertly sneaking looks at bird books, floras, and even the odd tome on reptiles… Sometimes, there would even be couples with different areas of wildlife interest! Again guided by the desires of our customers, we have more recently started offering our popular photography, wildlife at leisure and Alpine Garden Society tours.

Naturetrek was founded in 1986 and our first tours specialised in birdwatching and botanical treks to remote and mountainous areas of the world. Thirty-two years later, we still offer many such treks, but our portfolio of holidays now includes 450+ holidays to over 90 different destinations worldwide. Today, we offer the world’s largest selection of professionally organised natural history holidays.

What Can I Expect on a Naturetrek holiday?

All of our holidays are expertly guided by a leading naturalist. In addition, we often take an expert local guide(s). Birds, mammals and plants are usually the main focus of our tours but we do incorporate as many other aspects of the natural world as possible, and many of our tours also include cultural highlights. Our holidays are often longer than other wildlife tours and, because they tend to be slower-paced (with the exception of our Bargain Selection), offer more time for detailed wildlife exploration, photography, relaxation and to take an interest in the region’s people, culture, history and architecture. We generally spend as much time as we can in an area searching for birds, mammals and plants on foot, though we do travel by minibus at least some of the time on most of our tours.

Papua New Guinea is one of the wildest and least explored regions on earth. Its astonishingly rich avifauna includes nearly 400 endemic species, amongst them the exquisite birds-of-paradise. This group of birds forms one of the principal objectives of this 16-day birdwatching tour. Starting in the capital Port Moresby, our tour visits Varirata National Park, Rondon Ridge, Karawari Lodge and finally the world-famous Ambua Lodge, encountering en route a wonderful variety of birds including many of the unique and fantastically plumaged birds-of-paradise. The lodge is situated at Tari Gap in the central highlands, home of the Huli tribe, or ‘wigmen’, known for their ornate ceremonial wigs, and dances and songs fashioned on the mating rituals of the birds-of-paradise.
