WE ‘GO LOCAL’

Not only is ‘going local’ the best way for you to have a real travel experience, but working with the local people and their businesses means that the economic benefit derived from your trek stays with the local community.

We have excellent relationships with the villages, communities and elders along the track and will continue to work with the local people in PNG and along the Kokoda Track to ensure everyone benefits from this once in a lifetime experience.

We exclusively use local guides who were born or raised along the Kokoda Track. They are all highly qualified, trained and English speaking and their intimate knowledge of the track will show you things that you wouldn’t otherwise find. You’ll also experience the track from a uniquely local perspective even meeting their friends and family along the journey.

Aside from the benefit to you, the traveller, we are proud to say that by employing locals, we are providing income, training and a career to local people.

With Kokoda Spirit, you can trek knowing that the money you spend directly benefits your leader, the porters and their families and the local community. In as many ways as we can, we support local businesses and communities in our travels, it’s the ethical way. It is the only way to get a true understanding of PNG and the Kokoda Track.

WE LOVE KOKODA

We do, we really love Kokoda, which is why we keep going back! We love it’s story, we love it’s people and we love it’s beauty and we’re confident that you’ll feel exactly the same after your experience.

Kokoda is a special place that we’re passionate about, that we care about and respect. We want to keep it special and although we’re not perfect, we try very hard to minimise our impact along the track by delivering an exceptional eco-trekking experience.

WE HAVE THE EXPERIENCE

We’ve been travelling Kokoda since 2004 and we’ve taken thousands of happy trekkers safely from start to finish. Over the years we’ve built an army of highly trained and knowledgable Australian and Papua New Guinean leaders and guides who will make sure you have the time of your life.

Our Adventure Masters and Guides are professional, friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the track with an exceptional knowledge of the history. They live and breathe Kokoda! All our senior staff are First Aid or Wilderness First Aid trained. Meet our team today.
