Crocodile Festival

Cultural in Ambunti

The inaugural two-day Crocodile Festival, sponsored by WWF Papua New Guinea, kicked off in 2007 and now attracts singsing (celebratory festival/dance) groups from throughout the Sepik Basin and a handful of international visitors. Usually held in August (check www.pngtourism.org.pg for exact dates), the canoe races and cultural performances aim to promote community tourism and crocodile conservation.
