    by biawak Updated Dec 10, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wasur is the only place in Indonesia where you can go on a "safari" like in Africa. While most of Indonesia's wildlife are concealed in rainforest habitats, you can drive around Wasur (in the dry season) and watch lots of wildlife: Timor deer (introduced), Agile wallabies (smaller kangaroos), cockatoos, lories etc. If you are familiar with prices of pet cockatoos in the US or Europe, you will literally see tens of thousands of US Dollars flying by!

  • Take the plane

    Biak Transportation

    You can also get there by boat, but it takes many days from Jakarta, so up to you if you have time or not.The plane is not too expensive. You can stop in Btak in your way between Jakarta and Jayapura. That is what I did and spent a full day in Byak.
