The Porters we use are the lifeblood of our business in PNG. Not only do they carry your food and equipment, but many have intimate knowledge of the areas we are traveling through. They are interesting people who, at night, cook our meals and entertain us. If you or a group of you would like to hire a personal Porter for your expedition, this can be arranged. For the 7-9 days, a personal Porter costs an extra AUD$700. Employing an extra Porter does not mean that your struggle along the Kokoda trek is any less meaningful. You are helping a local with a job and you will probably enjoy the trek that much more. We also give our porters K250 remote locality allowance for them when they travel back to their village’s.
