Ambua Lodge


Ambua Lodge is an inspired mixture of local architecture, spectacular views and modest luxury off the beaten track. Located in the Tari Gap area, Ambua Lodge borders on pristine mid-montane rainforest at the beginning of the valley grasslands. This location promises the visitor eternal spring weather and views of the Tari Valley.

The forest canopy, a dense mass of interlocking tree tops of all shades of green and the occasional bright splash of color, provides a natural setting and an exhilarating climate for venturing along the nature trails – cross traditional vine bridges, discover a secluded waterfall and spot high-altitude orchids and rhododendrons.

Located at 2,100 meters in the PNG Southern Highlands, in the Tari Gap area, Papua New Guinea.
