Riverwalk and Camping Tour in Manokwari Forest

I have organized numerous riverwalk and camping tours in the forest of Manokwari for several years now. During the tours, visitors will be able to see the beautiful scenery of tropical rainforest, watch lowland tropical birds such as Papuan hornbills, Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, Pinon Imperial Pigeon, Yellow-faced Myna, Palm Cockatoo, Nightjar, Papuan Flowerpecker and a lot more.
In addition to birdwatching, while walking along the banks of the river or swimming in the fresh water river, visitors will be able to see colorful butterflies such as New Guinea Clipper, Cruiser butterfly, Blue Mountain Swallowtail and Birdwing Butterfly from the genus of Ornithoptera.
In addition to freshwater fish, birds, butterflies and large green trees, visitors can also see tropical flowers such as Eichornia, Small Passion Flowers and New Guinea Tulip (Spathodea campanulata) and terrestrial orchids.
As a tour guide, I provide tents, cooking and eating gear, lighting equipment, binoculars and spotting scope that are needed during the tour.
Visitors are suggested to wear water shoes and apply anti insect lotion if they want to participate in the tour.

Destination Manokwari
If you want to visit this forest, you need to fly to Manokwari city.

  • First, you need to fly from your country to Jakarta, Bali or Manado.
  • After that you can take domestic flight to Manokwari city. There are regular daily flight services provided by such airlines as Garuda, Sriwijaya, and Xpress Air.

Manokwari is a historical town. It was the first site in the whole New Guinea where Christianity for the first time was introduced by European missionaries to the indigenous Papuan people in the nearby Mansinam island on 5 February 1855. It was also an important destination for British scientist Alfred Russel Wallace in 1858 when he conducted research on natural history.
Manokwari was the headquarters for Imperial Japanese Army in late 1943 and 1944 when they were fighting against US allied forces during Pacific War. The Japanese deployed 50,000 troops led by Lieutenant Fusataro Teshima from 2nd Army. We could still see old World War II bomb shelters in some parts of the city.

Watching Cockatoo in Lowland Forest of Manokwari

There is a forest area in Manokwari that is the natural habitat of several species of cockatoos. Its name is Mesirrokow located in the west of the city. It is a nice place for nature lovers who want to spend several days hiking, camping and wildlife watching in the river-forest area. From my previous riverwalk and camping tour in the region, I saw Sulphur Crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita). The whole body of this bird was white with yellow crest on top of its head. In the mornings and in the afternoon, cockatoos gathered in small groups and sat on the branches of tall trees near our tents. They made loud screeching sounds that filled the atmosphere of the surrounding forest while they were sitting or flying among the green trees.
In addition to those white cockatoos, I also saw Eclectus Parrots (Eclectus rotatus), Palm Cockatoo (Probosciger aterrimus), Western Black-capped Lory and Rainbow Lorikeet.
Large Papuan hornbill can be seen flying in the sky both in the mornings and in the afternoon.
Cockatoos are not the only birds that live in the forest of Mesirrokow. There are other birds too such as nightjar, pigeons, flowerpecker, butcherbird, and hawk. 
Visitors who want to watch birds in Mesirrokow river-forest need to bring a good pair of binoculars, and/ or spotting scope. They are very important for watching birds or other wild animals without having too close to them. 
Sulphur Crested Cockatoo eats fruits such as papaya, and bananas. In certain areas, abundant population of cockatoos may create problems among farmers. These beautiful birds may be considered as pest because they often attack fruit crops that are planted by local farmers.
As a tour guide, I offer rainforest hiking and camping tour to this jungle. Participants of the tour do not need to bring tents, and sleeping bags or cooking and eating equipment. I can provide them all including two binoculars and 1 spotting scope for watching birds and other wild animals.
Participants of the tour are advised to wear water shoes, and apply anti-insect lotion on their exposed skin.
If you are interested in watching cockatoos and other lowland birds in Manokwari, please, contact me by email to: peace4wp@gmail.com or by whatsapp to +6281332245180.

Watching Nightjar in Lowland Forest of Manokwari

I have just returned from lowland forest of Manokwari. I guided two British tourists for 3 days/ 2 nights on a hiking and camping trip to watch cockatoo, hornbill, nightjar, plover, eclectus parrot and brahminy kite. We also saw beautiful scenery of the jungle and enjoyed swimming in the river.
Here is a picture of some Sulphur Crested Cockatoes (Cacatua galerita) which we saw near our camping site. Local people called the birds: kakatua putih (white cockatoo) or burung yakop. Birds were active in the mornings and in early evening. To watch them, we used binoculars, and spotting scope. I used my old Fujifilm HS50EXR to make some photographs of these cockatoo and some other birds.

At night, we had a short walk to find nightjar. We found some of them. I took several pictures of one of the nightjars. Christina, a British girl who was one of the participants of the rainforest tour, also took some pictures of the bird. We used Birds of New Guinea field guide book to try to determine the species of the nightjar. Unfortunately, we could not confirm its species name.
The eyes of this nightjar bird were glowing red when they reflected light from our torches.

While walking along the banks of the river, we saw some wild flowers such as these blue-yellow terrestrial flowers (which I guessed as a kind of orchid) and yellow eichornia.

New Hiking and Birding Destination in Manokwari - Mesirrokow River

I have been promoting a new tourist destination in Manokwari for 2 weeks now. Its name is Mesirrokow river-forest located in the northwest region of the city, approximately 1 hour drive.
Mesirrokow river is a great place for hiking, sightseeing, birdwatching, swimming and camping. In other words it is a paradise for nature lovers. There is a huge forest area that has not been explored by foreign visitors.
Watching Birds
When I guided two Swiss visitors, I saw a lot of Sulphur Crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita), Papuan Blyth's Hornbill (Rhyticeros plicatus) flying in the sky or perching on the branches of green trees. A good pair of binoculars or a spotting scope will be useful when visiting the river-forest of Mesirrokow.

Camping
I spent 3 days/ 2 nights exploring the river. I used 3 dome tents and a large plastic tarpauline sheet to cover us from heavy rain and strong wind.
Taking Pictures
To take pictures of birds, the scenery of the river and wild flowers, I used my old Fujifilm HS50EXR. The followings are some of the pictures that I made during the trip.

Bird Pictures from the Forest of Mesirrokow River

Sulphur Crested Cockatoo in Mesirrokow forest of Manokwari
Mesirrokow river located in the north-west area of Manokwari regency is a recommended site for watching lowland birds. I spent 3 days hiking and camping with 2 Swiss tourists several days ago. During the riverwalk, we saw a lot of birds including Pinon Imperial Pigeon, Western Black Capped Lory, Little Ringed Plover, Willie Wagtail, Nightjar, Eclectus Parrot, Palm Cockatoo, Sulphur Crested Cockatoo, and Papuan Hornbill.

Photographing Birds
I used my old digital camera Fujifilm HS50EXR. The camera could take some nice pictures of birds that were perching on the branches of trees or flying in the sky. Today there are bridge cameras that have longer reach but most of them are not fast enough to focus on moving subjects. For this reason, I choose this Fujifilm HS50EXR.
Papuan Blyth's hornbill in Mesirrokow forest of Manokwari
The pictures that I created my not be the best pictures for publishing industry but it is good enough for anybody to identify the species of the animals. I mostly use the photographs in my blog and social media page as promotional posts for people who are interested in taking wildlife birding tools.
In addition to birds, I also saw butterflies, bettles, fireflies, flowers, fish, lizards, and wonderful scenery of Mesirrokow river.

Birding Device
I use two binoculars for birdwatching, one for me and another one for my guests. Most often, visitors bring their own binoculars.
If you plan to visit Mesirrokow river for birdwatching, I highly recommend that you also bring a spotting scope + tripod and adapter for smart-phone or camera. It will be a great device for watching birds and other animals.

How to visit Mesirrokow river
  • Fly from your country to Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia.
  • Fly to Manokwari city (there are daily flights provided by such airlines as Garuda, Xpress Air, Sriwijaya.

Flowers in the River-Forest of Manokwari

Flowers in the Mesirrokow river-forest
While I was guiding two Swiss tourists along the banks of Mesirrokow river-forest, I saw some interesting flowers. Some of them were New Guinea tulip (also called spathodea), eichhornia and other species that I don't know their names. In my previous hiking trips in the same region, I saw Faradaya splendida glory vine flowers, Thunbergia grandiflora and Ipomoea morning glory. Flowers like to grow near the river because they need water to survive. Mesirrokow river is located in the northwest of Manokwari, approximately 50 kilometers from the city.

Hiking and Birdwatching
In addition to flowers, the forest edges along the Mesirrokow river of Manokwari was an ideal site for hiking and birdwatching. With 2 good pairs of binoculars, we were able to see a lot of Papuan Blyth's hornbills, and Sulphur Crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita). Mesirrokow river was also a place where I was able to see and take picture of Large-tailed Nightjar (Caprimulgus mucrurus). I also took some good pictures of Willie Wagtail and Little Ringed Plover.

I have just returned from the jungle of Mesirrokow in the northwest of Manokwari. The lowland river forest in the area is an ideal place for hiking, camping and birdwatching.

I also saw soa-soa lizard that was running away from us when he heard our foot-steps. Perhaps, he was drinking water from the river. There were also footprints of deers and wild-pigs that we saw on the sand banks of the rivers.
Most of the area on both sides of the river was flat. It was an ideal place for nature lovers who want to explore the tropical rainforest of West Papua.
In addition to birds, and butterflies, the river environment in Mesirrokow forest has got some colorful aquatic flowers, perhaps from the genus of eichhornia and New Guinea passion flowers that look small but beautiful.

Birdwatching in Manokwari Forest

Manokwari as a famous destination for birdwatchers
Manokwari regency has been a famous destination for birdwatchers. Birding activities can be done in lowland and montane forests. A lot of species of birds can be seen if we walk a wide and long clearing area in the jungle such as the banks of a river.

Birding Device
I highly suggest that birdwatchers bring a good pair of binoculars, a spotting scope + universal stand mount for cell phone (this is important for taking pictures of birds using spotting scope and cell phone) and a tripod.

Eclectus Parrots in Lowland Forest of Manokwari
Lowland Forest of Manokwari
Birds such as hornbill, cokcatoo and hawk choose big trees such as ironwood tree, strangler ficus tree, nutmeg tree and kayu perahu tree as their nests. For dwarf kingfisher, and yellow-billed kingfisher, they prefer smaller trees near the river. I used to see kingfisher that perched on a vine that was hanging over a small river. The bird chose a vine or a twig near or above a river as its waiting platform to watch and catch fish.
The lowland forest the place for visitors who want to see a lot of species of plants including giant trees with big buttresses, or small mushrooms that glow at night.


Camping, Swimming and Fishing
The best way to explore the natural habitat of the forest is by installing tents near the river. I have done this with tourists fro Switzerland, the United Kingdom, China and France. These tourists enjoyed the tour very much because they could see Sulphur Crested Cockatoo, Pinon Imperial Pigeon, and Little ringed Plover, Willie Wagtail, Brahminy Kite, and Kingfisher.
