Welcome to The Dog's Head

Kastom dancing tours go to Wala and Vao to see Small Nambas dances; to Unmet and Mae to see Big Nambas. Other tours go to the spectacular Yalo Cavern near Tanmial and the islets of Wala (a cruise-ship favourite) and Vao.

Accommodation places can usually arrange visits to tribal groups and the Amelbati cannibal site near Wala village, where piles of bones and skulls tell a story of primitive times less than a century ago. At the time of research the cannibal site on the island of Rano was off-limits due to a land dispute.
