    Tumbuna Festival

    Combine a more intimate Sing Sing with a tour of Tari, the Sepik region and Mt Hagen

    Tumbuna is the Tok Pisin (local language) word for ancestors. The Tumbuna Sing Sing will be a spectacular celebration of the local traditions with a colorful extravaganza of traditional dress, dancing and singing by local tribes. You will have the unique opportunity to witness the ways of the local people as well as meet tribal elders and hear their stories of the taim bilong timbuna, the time of the ancestors. On this special tour you will also have the chance to explore other areas of Papua New Guinea, including Mount Hagen, the Tari Valley, and rarely-visited villages from the Sepik River. Join Destination Specialist Lené Minder on this amazing ancestral discovery!
