West Papua, Raja Ampat, Birding on Batanta, Salawati & Waigeo

West Papua, Raja Ampat, Birding on Batanta, Salawati & Waigeo



A pilgrimage to see Wilson’s Bird-of-Paradise. The islands of Batanta, Salawati, Misool and Waigeo are also home to Red and King BoP, Northern Cassowary, c and much more.Pteridophora alberti, King of Saxony Bird-of-paradise,

Key species:

Wilson’s Bird-of-Paradise; Red Bird-of-Pardise; King Bird-of-Paradise; Northern Cassowary; Western Crowned-pigeon; Pheasant Pigeon; Black Lory; Beach Kingfisher; Bruijn’s Brush-turkey.

Birding locations:

The islands of Raja Ampat are accessed via Sorong on the mainland. There are four main islands: Batanta, Salawati, Misool and Waigeo, but a trip to Batanta and nearby Salawati is usually enough to see all but Bruijn’s Brush-turkey.

  • Batanta Island

Birdwatchers usually base themselves in the village of Walibed on the south coast of the island. From the guest house run by the village there is easy access to some great birding. A short walk inland brings you to a large clearing which is an excellent spot to watch for parrots and pigeons in the morning or evening. It is also the spot to look for Red Bird-of-Paradise as there is a display tree nearby. Beyond the clearing the land rises steeply into forest. A walk through this forest towards the ridge above brings you to a number of display grounds of Wilson’s Bird-of-Paradise. Local guides have built hides around several of the grounds, so an early morning walk in will almost always reward you with spectacular views of these amazing birds.

  • Salawati Island

The island of Salawati is a short boat ride from Walibed on Batanta. There are several birding sites on the island. These include an area of swamp forest almost immediately opposite Walibed, which is home to King Bird-of-Paradise and has Northern Cassowary present. An alternative site for both these species, plus Western Crowned-Pigeon is a slightly longer boat ride to the west side of the island. The swamp forests in this area are more extensive and less disturbed. The crowned-pigeon can be seen in the forest and occasionally foraging along the edge of the beach in small groups. Further east along the channel separating Batanta from Salawati there are a group of small ponds just behind the beach which can be good for ducks and Western Crowned-Pigeon is also occasionally seen.

  • Waigeo Island

No details yet. Have you been birding here? Would you like to add some details? Email us or post your advice below as a comment.

Access, accommodation & timing:

The nearest airport to the Raja Ampat islands is Sorong. From there a boat is needed to get to Batanta, Salawati or any other of the islands. An easy, but generally expensive, option is to charter a boat for the number of days you plan to be exploring. This has the advantage that you can pick and choose where and when you want to visit different sites. To arrange a trip on public transport is more difficult, but possible. The best bet for either option would be to ask around for a boat or ride at the port in Sorong or on adjacent Dom Island from which small boats serve the offshore islands.

For Batanta and Salawati the best base is probably Walibed on Batanta. The village here operates a simple guesthouse and can provide local guides to visit the birding sites inland. To visit Salawati is easy if you have chartered a boat, if not you would probably need to catch a ride across on a fishing boat or canoe.

There is no where to buy food on Batanta or Salawati, so you will need to bring everything you need from Sorong. You will also need to bring more than you need (especially rice) as you should expect to feed your guides and anyone else from the village that visits you during your stay. The village can provide someone to cook your food for you if you ask.

West Papua, Arfak, Birding the Arfak Mountains

West Papua, Arfak, Birding the Arfak Mountains


Summary:Astrapia nigra, Arfak Astrapia, Astrapia Arfak

Stunning mountain scenery and stunning birds. See displaying Western Parotia, Magnificent BoP, plus Black Sicklebill, Long-tailed Paradigalla, Arfak Astrapia and much, much more.

Key species:

Magnificent Bird-or-Paradise; Black Sicklebill; Long-tailed Paradigalla; Arfak Astrapia; Arfak Bowerbird; Lesser Bird-of-Paradise; Superb Bird-of-Paradise; New Guinea Eagle; Feline Owlet-Nightjar; Mountain Owlet-Nightjar; Spotted Jewel-Babbler; Chestnut-backed Jewel-Babbler Spotted Catbird; Flame Bowerbird; Magnificent Riflebird; Buff-tailed Sicklebill.

Birding locations:

The best known birding is around the village of Sioubri, and in the company of one of Indonesia’s best local bird guides Zeth Wonggor. There are great birding sites above and below the village, and the road from Manokwari to reach Sioubri also passes through good forest habitat. To see the range of species present around Sioubri takes a few days and some careful consideration of where to place yourself each day. The best bet is to discuss the options with Zeth when you arrive and plan your time accordingly. Most of the key species occupy distinct altitudes and so for example a trip up high is necessary to see Black Sicklebill, Arfak Astrapia and several of the parrot and robin species. A trip down towards Ciraubri is necessary for Flame Bowerbird and Magnificent Riflebird. Other species can be seen nearer to Sioubri, either above or below the village. Zeth has constructed hides close to the display grounds of several species including Western Parotia, Magnificent BoP, Arfak Bowerbird and so you also need to decide which hide you want to place yourself in each morning to stand the best chance of seeing the birds in action.

Access, accommodation & timing:

The nearest airport is in Manokwari. From there it is a 2-3 hour drive up to Sioubri (longer if you stop for birds!). Cars can be chartered in Manokwari and you should also arrange a day and time for the car to come and collect you at the end as there is no way to arrange a ride back once in Sioubri.

The village runs a simple guest house that you can stay in, and there is another simple hut higher up the mountain that you can spend a night or two in to access higher altitudes more easily.

You should bring all the food you need, plus more for the local guides and porters, from Manokwari. You can probably buy a few fresh vegetables locally to supplement what you bring. Through Zeth you can arrange porters and cooks to support you during your stay.

The weather is very pleasant during the day and cold at night, so a sleeping bag is necessary. The main season for displaying birds-of-paradise runs from March-September and so this is the best time to visit. It is worth trying to get a message ahead that you plan to come, to make sure you can get Zeth’s time. He cannot be contacted directly but a message can be passed to him from his brother, Asser Wonggor, or via Papua Bird Club in Manokwari.

Pegunungan Arfak Nature Reserve

Pegunungan Arfak Nature Reserve comprises an area of 68,000 ha. located in the Bird’s Head peninsula, about 25 km southwest of Manokwari in Manokwari province. The altitudes in this mountain reserve range form sea-level to the 2,802 m. Gunung Humibou. Habitats range from tropical lowland rain forest, through sub-montane forests to montane moss forests at the higher altitudes.
Pegunungan Arfak is home to a variety of animals of which some only occur in the reserve. Approximately 110 mammal species, including 30 marsupial species, and 320 bird species can be found. The area is famous for its six species of birdwing butterflies, which are great collector’s items for butterfly collectors. To protect the wild species, a special butterfly breeding facility has been established in Mokwam, at the northern border of the reserve. The Anggi lakes, which are also worth a visit but not part of the reserve, are located a little west of the site.
Currently, WWF and PHPA, run a special project in the area. They try to promote conservation awareness in the area in co-operation with the local Hatam people.
Pegunungan Arfak Nature Reserve is relatively easy accessible. From Manokwari buses go to Rainsiki, at the southern border, Warkapi, at the eastern border, and Warmare, a trans-migration village north of the reserve. Manokwari can be reached by plane from Biak, by plane or boat from Jayapura and by boat from Sorong. English-speaking guides for the area can be found at the WWF office in Manokwari. Guides, who speak only Bahasa Indonesia, can be found in the villages bordering the reserve.
Except for some very simple huts there is no accommadation in the reserve. At Mokwam it may be possible to stay in the WWF hut. To sleep in the villages at the borders of the reserve you have to ask the kepala desa. Manokwari offers several possibilities.
