  • You can travel on trucks

    Wewak Transportation

    If you are travelling near Wewak, then the truck is the best way, but if you want to go to Madang, then there is only the sea way. There is a ferry once a week, or you can organize the trip by motorboats, which takes two days to arrive to Madang. I selected this second option and travelled by motorboat, then truck, then again motorboat and finally...

  • Inside Wewak Diesel Power Station

    Wewak Off The Beaten Path

    Because Wewak, along with Madang, was one of the biggest towns along the north coast of Papua New Guinea, it had one of the larger diesel power stations in the country. As a result, I ended up making about 5 trips here for one reason or another and got to know the Manager of the station, local Thomas Kabo, quite well. He did his best to try to keep...

    Wewak Off The Beaten Path

    On a much earlier trip, in September 1980, I was in Wewak following problems with the big new No. 4 machine. With it out of action, things were not going well for Elcom in Wewak! As a result, a smaller 540-kw Detroit Diesel machine with a Kato generator was shipped in as quickly as possible.I was part of the small team from Port Moresby who looked...

  • Angoram is Located HERE

    Angoram Favorites

    With the central 14,000+ foot (4400-m) mountain ranges dividing Papua New Guinea into northern and southern zones, at least 60% of the northern half of the country is drained by the Sepik River. Located only about 3 degrees south of the equator, and catching the moisture off the Pacific Ocean, the rainforest in this part of PNG is the largest...

  • By Dug-Out Canoe

    Angoram Transportation

    In the Sepik River area, the mass of large and twisting rivers and lagoons makes travel by road very difficult, so the dugout canoe is the favoured mode of transportation by the locals. The canoes are made from large logs, which are usually towed to the owners village where the middle part of each is then gouged out using an adz. The final touches...

  • Explore the Sepik River

    Angoram Things to Do

    If you get a chance to spend some time in Angoram, you would be well-advised to take advantage of the situation and head off for a boating excursion on the Sepik. Most of the activity takes place up-river from here, but it is possible to book boat or motorized-canoe trips at the hotel or tourist agencies in town. You actually have the option of...

  • BRING THE DEET!!!!

    Timbunke What to Pack

    DEET is industrial strength mosquito repellent. It's absolutely necessary to be fully covered with this stuff while you're in the Sepik Region, an area infamous for its thriving malaria. It's not enough that you take Malaria pills as a precaution - you need to also wear long clothing and or at least cover up your exposed skin with DEET. You can...

  • Children playing along the river banks

    Timbunke Local Customs

    Apparently the natives hold the croc in high regard, but the children are allowed to frolic along the river banks without a thought as to possible croc attacks....we often saw the kids splashing right along the shoreline, waving to us or playing in the water. When they knew were were coming to their village, the kids would scamper up the shore and...

  • Crocodile Canoes

    Timbunke Local Customs

    The Sepik people hold the crocodile in high regard, and the croc is the prevailing symbol throughout the Sepik region (more on this in my Yentchan pages).The canoes are even carved to resemble this ferocious animal.
