Wildlife watching tour in Manokwari with Charles Roring
Papua Dragon Lizard
These are the photograph of Tree Dragon Lizard that I saw in Susnguakti forest when I guided 2 Dutch tourists on a 4-day/ 3-night hiking and birding tour in Manokwari. The forest is located in the eastern region of Arfak mountains approximately one and a half hour ride from Manokwari.
I have organized numerous tours to the forest for visitors who come from Poland, the United States, Australia, Germany, The Philipines, South Korea, France, Spain, and Indonesia.
Susnguakti forest is the natural habitat of birds such as Lesser Birds of Paradise, King Bird of Paradise, Magnificent Riflebird, Spot-winged Monarch, Rufous-bellied Kookaburra, Hooded Butcherbird, Great Cuckoo Dove and a lot of other species of birds that are endemic to Arfak mountains.
In addition to birds, tourists who go there could also see cuscus possum, and bandicoot, ground brown skink, and snakes when doing night walk in the jungle. Fireflies and glowing mushrooms exist in the jungle.
There are no hotels or guesthouses in the jungle. I and local villagers built basecamps in the forest for tourists who want to spend a few days exploring the wealth of biodiversity of the forest.
If you are interested in visiting Susnguakti forest, please, fly from your country to Jakarta city - the capital of Indonesia. After that, you can take a domestic flight to Manokwari by Garuda, Sriwijaya Air or Batik Air. Don't forget to bring binoculars, spotting scope, head torch, field guide book: Birds of New Guinea.
