The Kokoda Trail is located in a remote jungle area of the rugged Owen Stanley Range in Papua New Guinea, where normal radio and mobile communications are near non-existent. Regardless of the limitations imposed on communications by the terrain, Kokoda Trail Expeditions has communications in these areas, using the latest and state-of-the-art satellite phones. We maintain communications with our office in Sydney, Australia, on a daily basis, for situational updates, to report on the progress of our treks and tours, coordinate resupply, initiate emergency evacuations, and keep everyone informed, including staff, trekkers, and their families. We also carry VHF radios and mobile phones, as an alternative means of communications and backup.
Communications is a vital enabler for Kokoda Trail Expeditions Kokoda Trail treks and PNG tours. Because, we rely on good communications for the operations and administration of our treks and tours, our treks and tours will not depart without firstly having communications.
