George 's Story

South Sea Horizons provided the best care along the way and exceeded my expectations as porters and guides. Although I do not have experience to compare SSH with others, the team that looked after us did very well and we built a bond with our respective porters that made it quite sad to part company when we reached the end of the journey.
Both Kabby and Newton performed first class in making sure I walked safely. I walked with my left knee that was not 100% and this made descents very draining and time consuming. However, my porters were always patient and supportive and when I appear to stumble, hands came out of nowhere to steady me on the track. At campsite, my porters made sure I was able to retire comfortably for the nights and my eating utensils were always clean and on hand during dinner times. I have nothing but praise for my porters and this also goes to the other porters as well who worked behind the scenes to make our journey very enjoyable
I would recommend SSH to anyone looking to walk the Kokoda track. I was not 100% fit but I was able to complete the track with the help of SSH team. Trekkers who are looking to enjoy the track and who are looking to learn about the history of the sights and villages along the track should go with SSH. Menari, the sight and resting place of the last fuzzy wuzzy angel is the base of SSH and so I would encourage everyone to spend some time at Menari during their walk.
I am from PNG and I felt safe all the time when I was on the track. I learnt the basic greetings for morning and afternoon and was able to speak with villagers along the track. Awesome and amazing experience. I will definitely do this again with SSH and K4K next year.
