Once your private tour guide picks you up this morning you will head out and begin your day of exploring. We will make our way through the town of Madang, through Balashiko Betel Nut Market as we head to Ohu Village. The drive to the village where the Ohu Butterfly Farm is located is approximately 50-minutes this morning.
Once we are at the village, you will have the opportunity to see many different species of butterflies - including the national blue butterfly. There are plenty of flowers, herbal plants, orchids, and different kinds of birds at Ohu Butterfly Farm - including the famous Ragiana Bird of Paradise.
We will enjoy approximately two hours at the butterfly farm before we transfer to the Balek Natural Habitat where there is more history to explore. Here you will see fish from both freshwater and limewater, turtles and eels, have a chance to visit a bat cave that was also used as a shelter at one point for locals, and also see a variety of orchids, insects, and butterflies.
Our next stop of the day will bring us back to the town of Madang, to the wharf where we will transfer onto a banana boat and head north to Malmal Village. After an approximately 20-minute boat ride, we will arrive at the village for some more exploration. The village is a great spot for history lovers as there are plenty of World War Two remnants including warship ship tunnels, machine guns, and much more.
Before we make our way back to the city, the Malmal traditional dancers will put on a unique dance as they send us off.
