|Our Camping tent for visitors|
Birds are usually active in the mornings and in the evening. They can be watched near the campsite. Visitors who want to watch them have to wake up early in the morning at 05.00. The walk to the birding site is around 10 minutes to the Lesser Birds of Paradise and 30 minutes to the King Bird of Paradise. Visitors need to bring a good pair of binoculars. Camera with telephoto lens such as D-SLR cameras with 400, 500 and even 600 mm lens are useful for taking pictures of birds and other wild animals in the forest.
I also organize night walks in the forest to allow visitors to watch ground skink, Papuan tree dragon lizard, ikaheka snake (which is a very poisonous snake), and cuscus possum.
Local villagers have got the expertise to immitate the sounds of female cuscus possums. To attract the possums, we have to do night walks. Visitors must turn off their flashlight before the calling can be started.
Sometimes bandicoot also comes to the same site and we wait for the cuscus possum.
If you want to watch cuscus possum, you need to fly to Manokwari city. I can meet you in this city and organize your tour to the forest and stay there for 3 to 4 days to watch the wild animals of Arfak mountains.
