Kiburu Lodge

This village owned lodge is designed in the local highlands architectural style and built largely from traditional materials. The central lodge overlooks the river and the accommodation facilities include 12 self contained units all with river views, television, telephone, refrigerator and tea/ coffee making facilities. Eight budget rooms with shared bathrooms facilities are also available.

At Kiburu, we have the philosophy that we need to nurture our environment and go to great lengths to ensure we have as minimal impact on our envrionment as possible. We collect water using the many rainwater tanks we have at the lodge and will soon be installing solar panels to further minimise our environmental impact.

Early risers will enjoy views of mountains surrounding mist covered valleys, and nature trails within the grounds contain unspoiled, scented flora and a variety of native birds and alpine orchids. Many activities and tours including trout fishing in the Mendi River, and bushwalking to traditional burial caves. White water rafting in the Mendi Valley and treks through the Southern Highlands can also be arranged. Kiburu Lodge's experienced guides will share their extensive and insightful knowledge of these untouched areas.

In the evenings guests can relax in the restaurant, lounge, bar, full verandah or outdoor BBQ area, and be entertained by the Kiburu Village people’s dance performances.

The serenity of Kiburu Lodge captures you immediately. The surrounding forests harbour the stunning Bird Of Paradise, the national emblem of Papua New Guinea, who fly freely in and out of the trees. Kiburu Lodge is passionate and committed to the environment, and we are proud to be a part of the eco tourism industry. Our spectacular and pristine surrounds can be experienced by trekking through the array of marvelous intertwining tracks that traverse the hills and ranges of the Kiburu district.
