Add-On: Bird of Paradise (2 Days/ 1 Night - or longer)

This add-on should be booked in combination with one of our special tour packages, e.g. our package A or B. Here are the packages.


Planned itinerary:

Baliem Valley Resort, Papua, Indonesia

Day 1: Wamena – Jayapura – Nimbokrang

In the morning, arrival in Jayapura (from Wamena, subsequent one of our special tours). Direct transfer to Nimbokrang (1,5 hour drive) to a small guesthouse with neighbouring bird sanctuary. The owner of the guesthouse, Mr. Jamil, an ornithologist, is very well known for his guided tours to the birds of paradise. After a quick lunch, prepared by Mr. Jamil’s wife, we directly start with our first birding tour in the early afternoon. Walking in the forest is easy, more important is a little patience. In this forest several types of bird of paradise can be seen, among which are the Lesser Bird of Paradise, the King BoP, and the 12 Wire BoP. Almost daily, male bird of paradise come to their trees to impress and attract females with their singing and dancing. The chance to see one or more different types of bird of paradise on this guided tour is high. Only when there is rain the birds do not show up. In the evening, dinner and overnight at the guesthouse. The guesthouse has 4 simple but clean bedrooms and guests have to share the 2 bathrooms which are big and clean and equipped with modern instalments.


--- Your stay in the guesthouse can be prolonged, each additional day comes with full board and 2 birding tours (afternoon and early morning) ---


Day 2: Nimbokrang - Jayapura

In the very early morning, with the break of dawn, we enter the forest once more. The very early morning hours are the best time to see the birds of paradise but during our walk through the forest we will realize that many other birds are also active at this time of day. We have time and there is no need to rush. Return to guesthouse in late morning and transfer back to Sentani. (From here continues our special tour program with a direct tour to Lake Sentani and overnight in Hotel Grand Allison “Travellers”)
