My brother and I walked the Kokoda Track at the beginning of November 2008 using a local guide and two local porters from Kokoda Station.
The trip took the commercialism feel of the Ozzy companies away from the trip and gave us a more natural and relaxed trek, which we both found to be much more enjoyable.
Our contact was Edric Ogomeni firstname.lastname@example.org, who arranged the contacts for us.
Tony was a very capable guide and Ray and François were a pleasure to trek with
The Kokoda boys are setting up their own trekking company called 'Foot Steps, Kokoda', and I strongly recommend that if you want to go native then trekkers should get in touch with these boys.
Looking forward already to the Black Cat in 2010
