Welcome to an untapped paradise, a sanctuary for life and a pristine region on the verge of critical, sustainable eco-tourism.
The Solomon Islands boasts some of the world’s richest marine life. It is one of only six countries in the 'Coral Triangle', a region with extremely high diversity of coral and fish species. The Arnavon Community Marine Park - the first National Park in Solomon Islands - is a a very special place. It protects 15,900 hectares of land and sea, including three small uninhabited islands, flourishing reefs, fish-filled lagoons, and beaches that are home to thousands of hawksbill sea turtles.
Together with The Nature Conservancy & Kawaki women's group (comprised of the Manning Strait tribes), we will be continuing a special journey which started in Australia at Natures Leading Women, with Global Sisters and our Expedition Leader, Charlotte.
Our organisations spent extensive time together, developing an eco-tourism enterprise solution which provides livelihood to the community and protects the wilderness of these remote Solomon Islands.
Through our travels, we let a lot of extraordinary landscapes vanish into a blur outside the windows. One moment present, the other, gone. On this journey, you will enter a realm vastly different from your typical holiday, in some of the most pristine, undeveloped places.
This experience will be physically challenging, mentally stimulating and spiritually abundant. You will be exposed to the true wilderness of exquisite Solomon reefs and jungle, in areas rarely traversed.
Together with our fantastic partners, you will have the unique opportunity to use our Brainmelt challenge-solving method to create tangible, positive change with a passionate team of creative and innovative individuals.
