Varirata National Park

March 22, 2014

March 2014

Bush walk through Varirata National Park, 40 minutes drive uphill from Port Morseby. Great views. Heard and saw birds of paradise in the forest, impossible to photograph, they were too far and too fast….

Randonnée dans le parc national de Varirata, sur les hauteurs de Port Moresby (40 minutes de route). Vues superbes. Avons vu et entendu les fameux “birds of paradise” (oiseaux du paradis), mais impossible à photographier, ils étaient trop loin et trop rapides…
