Rainforest Tour in Sorong and Raja Ampat

I often guide tourists on rainforest tour in Sorong and Raja Ampat regencies. Most visitors who want to spend their holidays in Waigeo, Gam or Mansuar islands need to fly to Sorong city first. From there, they will continue their trip by fast ferry boat to Waisai and then by motorized boats to homestays and resorts in those islands. 

There are a lot of visitors who request land tours especially the wildlife watching trips to rainforest.

The one that is close to Sorong city is mangrove forest. When I guide visitors to this forest, I bring binoculars that I attach on a tripod. This allows tour participants to watch birds in distant trees with better images. Birds in mangrove forest that we could see include White-bellied Cuckooshrike, Orange-fronted Fruit Dove, Orange-breasted Fig Parrot, Brown-backed Honeyeater, Olive-backed Sunbird, Hooded Butcherbird, Blue-black Kingfisher and etc.

For trips to rainforest of Sorong regency, I usually offer a 3-day-2-night wildlife watching trip in Klasow valley. The main target birds to see include various species of insects, birds, reptiles and mammals. Because visitors stay in a village in the forest, monitor lizard, cuscus, and paradise birds could be seen during the tour. 

When I guide visitors in Raja Ampat, I combine snorkeling and sightseeing tour with birdwatching and wildlife watching. Actually, coral reef is considered as the tropical forest of the sea. It is the natural habitat of a lot of species of marine animals and plants. Beautiful marine creatures could be seen while we swim over coral reef. But unique rainforest animals can be watched when we go hiking in tropical forest of Waigeo.
