Indigenous Kokoda Adventures
Indigenous Kokoda Adventures (IKA) is the first and only wholly Indigenous tour operator on the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea was built upon the belief that tourism should be beneficial for both the traveller and the local communities that are providing the tourism experience.
We are committed to providing trekkers with a safe, challenging trek in a very remote part of the world. Our priority is for all trekkers to safely complete their trek, have some fun while doing so and to learn about the people and cultures of Papua New Guinea directly from the local people. Our treks are designed to provide trekkers with an opportunity to experience PNG culture while also having the personal satisfaction of mastering the challenge of completing the Kokoda Track. Mastering the physical difficulties of The Kokoda Track is an experience that will never be forgotten, and we speak the truth when we say you will not return home the same person.
Our trekkers can be reassured that because we are local there is minimal tourism leakage – most of our tour fees stay in the communities along the Kokoda Track and with our guides and porters (who are from the Track) being provided with a more fair and equitable employment compensation packages, they are better able to educate their children and provide for their families.
We also work with local coffee farmers in the Kokoda region, selling lKA branded coffee. Net proceeds provide scholarships through our foundation for post Grade 8 education for the children along the Track. Our coffee, Kokoda Luti Coffee, represents the heart and soul of Kokoda – our children who are the future of the Kokoda Track and Papua New Guinea.
