Papua New Guinea Islands with Zay Harding
Zay Harding travels to the remote and beautiful Papua New Guinea islands of Manus, New Ireland and New Britain. Starting his journey on Manus, Zay is given an extraordinary traditional welcome, before traveling to the offshore island of Hawei, where he goes fishing with the islanders. Flying on to Kavieng in New Ireland, Zay joins a local hunting expedition for one of the more unusual local delicacies - flying fox. After successfully catching some bats, they're roasted over an open fire on the beach. Zay declares the meat delicious, like a good steak. From Kavieng, Zay cycles down the east coast of New Ireland, stopping to visit a woman who's locally renowned for having tamed some huge freshwater eels. Zay feeds these extraordinary creatures, before cycling on to visit one of New Ireland 's greatest master carvers. New Ireland is famous for its beautiful traditional carvings, and in his home village Ben Sissia shows Zay how he makes the masks that are worn in local ceremonies. Nearby, Zay gets to witness a spectacular Malagan ceremony with masked dancers. Catching a banana boat from the coast of New Ireland, Zay is thrilled when his boat is surrounded by a huge pod of dolphins. Passing through the Duke of York Islands, en route to Rabaul in New Britain, Zay dives a submerged World War Two tank. On arrival in Rabaul, Zay goes diving in the harbour, which was a major Japanese naval base during World War Two, and gets to see a shot down Japanese Zero fighter plane that was discovered just a few months earlier. Until the 1990s, Rabaul was a thriving provincial capital, but the population is now just a fraction of what it once was, following a huge volcanic eruption in 1994, which carpeted the town with ash. Zay canoes to the base of the dramatic, still active volcano Tavurvur, where he joins the locals hunting for eggs that Megapode birds lay for ease of hatching in the warm volcanic ash. Zay then eats some of the eggs after boiling them in a volcanic hot spring. In the hills surrounding Rabaul, Zay witnesses the rarely seen, spectacular nocturnal Fire Dance of the Baining tribe, before ending his trip climbing Rabaul 's highest volcano.
