Absolutely loved the Adventure Kokoda 8 day history trek! I cannot thank our trek leader, PNG porters & all the Adventure Kokoda staff enough for making it such a fantastic experience.
Our leader Peter Morrison was so knowledgeable - he ensured we got a true understanding & appreciation of the conditions that were faced, the resilience shown, & mate-ships formed.
My PNG porter Rex was an absolute superstar - not only carrying my pack, but answering all my questions, educating me on his life, & encouraging me when things got really tough. Thanks Rex!!
The Kokoda track itself is epic - physically & emotionally challenging, but so rewarding and such an experience. I feel privileged to have almost made it and hope to get another chance to compete those last few days!
I was unfortunately forced off the track with 3 days left due to injury. However, from the moment it happened, I was in the best of hands. The PNG medic & porters swung into action, getting me safely down the mountain to our campsite for the night. Our trek leader, PNG representative & Aus-based AK staff ensured a medi-vac was arranged for the first available time. Choppered out safely, I was transported to the International Hospital by another AK staff member (Helen), who also stayed with me whilst I was seen by the Doctor. But it didn't end there, the AK Moresby based staff continued to check on me, looking after me while I was recovering (thanks again Helen & Donald!). Despite the pain I was in, I always felt like everything was 100% under control and I was cared for in the best possible manner.
Highly recommend Adventure Kokoda & hope the get another chance at those last 3 days in future!
