|Riverwalk Tour in Manokwari|
I hire some local villagers to work as porters, and cooks. During the tour, I teach them how to identify birds and how to cook food for tourists. Hopefully, they could become tourists guides who will protect their forests in the future.
One of the destinations is Mesirrokow forest. It is located in Manokwari, the water current in its river is not strong. So, we could enjoy birdwatching in the mornings and in the afternoons. I have organized tens camping tours in Manokwari each of them is with different participants. In the previous tours, participants came from France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and China. They came in a small group of two to four people but there was also solo traveler who took the tour.

Because the whole world is still effected by the spread of coronavirus disease, the riverwalk and camping tour to this forest cannot be conducted at this moment. However, I can receive bookings for visitors who are interested in future trips perhaps starting from June or July.
