Silversea Expedition Cruises To KOPAR VILLAGE (Sepik River)

KOPAR VILLAGE (Sepik River)

Kopar is a small village of no more than 200 inhabitants at the mouth of the Sepik River. The inhabitants make a living through subsistence hunting and gathering and go out in traditional canoes to look for suitable sago palms to produce their staple food. Since the Sepik meanders through swampy areas, the locals have cut narrow channels through the swamps to be able to connect more easily with their neighbours. View more

The area surrounding Kopar will offer sights of flood plain birds, parrots and the odd kite, a large bird of prey.
