Kokoda Trek Special Forces Response Leadership

The Kokoda track is a very arduous, physically demanding trek in an isolated region. It is imperative that a highly qualified trek medic is on the trek that can administer a high level of care in the event of an emergency. This includes administering intravenous life saving drugs, to IV Hydration and Critical Care.
The Trek Medic also administers medical aid to our local guides and villagers along the way who are in the need of Medical assistance.

Kokoda Trek Critical Care emergency responders

We consider and treat our local guides who are from the villages along the Kokoda track as our Brothers and sisters. We treat them as such with the highest of respect and care at all times. All of our local guides are paid at aBove the award KTA rate.


They in return represent the spirit of their descendants, the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels of 1942, By supporting, helping and getting us safely over the track.

 

Getting to know them, hearing aBout their lives, their culture and to witness firsthand their kindness and strength is one of the most rewarding experiences of doing Kokoda.

PRE KOKODA

 trek PLAN:

Kokoda Courage has the best completion rate on the track. This is not just due to our excellent guides or experienced trek medic on the track. It is because we actively oversee every trekkers pre-trek training leading up to the trip.


The Kokoda track experience is very doable. Thousands of Australians complete it every year of all ages.
But extensive Pre-trek training is essential as we are walking over a huge mountain range for 8 days in the heat and humidity, sometimes in very wet muddy conditions, so you must prepare for the worst conditions.


All of our Kokoda Courage staff have their personal training qualifications and will support you and guide you every step on the way of this journey and that includes getting you prepared for the trek.

KOKODA FIT

Kokoda Courage provides an extensive training program to every trekker as part of your trek package.

 

we will also actively provide assistance and advice to make sure you are fit and physically prepared for the trek.

 

we have one of the highest completion rates on the kokoda trail

Bright camp

Kokoda Courage organise and lead a pre-trek overnight camp at no extra cost. This is for trekkers to familiarise themselves with all of their trek clothes, Boots and camping equipment prior to the trek.

 

This also a great time to Bond with your fellow trekkers prior to the trek in a Beautiful place such as the Grampians, Bright, the High Country or the Great Ocean Rd Trek*.

* We also organise these same camps interstate and one of our guides will fly to the state to organise and lead the weekend.
