Papua New Guinea is the most mysterious and anthropologically diverse island/country in the world that hosts one of the widest diversities of marine life.
The Sepik river is known as a living anthropological museum. Local tribes remain immensely proud of their crocodile cult, only practiced today in a few villages. The atmosphere in Marab, a village hidden deep in the wild, is bursting with raw human spirit – the air is full of ancient mystery and the power of hypnotizing drums is palpable. At the same time, while swimming with sharks, turtles and other fascinating underwater creatures we discover coral reefs in one of the widest diversities of marine life in the world.
