Numfor Paradise Kingfisher Tanysiptera carolinae occurs only on Numfor Island in western New Guinea's fabled Geelvink or Cenderawasih Bay and hence is a West Papua endemic. Copyright © Aniket Sardana

Geelvink Islands endemics

Birding break

No less than 17 endemic bird species, including a megapode, two gorgeous paradise kingfishers and three parrots, plus heaps of morphologically highly distinctive yet virtually 'forgotten' endemic subspecies await us on this birding adventure covering the islands of Biak and Numfor in West Papua's famed Geelvink or Cenderawasih Bay. So join us as we sound out speciation in these insular taxa, and later still be in the fortunate opportunity to continually add ‘new species’ to your life list from the comfort of your easy chair.


Rewarding year-round.

A resounding thank you for introducing us to so many wonderful birds. Not cheap — everything is expensive here at the end of the world — but worth every cent.
