Technology

At Kokoda Trekking, we pride ourselves on offering the safest Kokoda Track experience available. One of the areas in which we specialise is technology. With its harsh landscape and rugged terrain, Kokoda is an experience that carries with it its share of hazards, but then any journey whether across the world or across the road is never 100% danger-free.

To minimise risk and to maximise enjoyment, our technology protocols are designed to keep us in touch wherever we go.

Satellite phones

All of our guides carry a satellite phone to ensure the group’s safety. In the event of a medical emergency or reports of incumbent weather, we are always able to make contact and be contacted.

TrekTraka

Now that you know about our safety technology considerations, now comes the fun part. TrekTraka is a powerful social media tool that will enhance not only your experience while on the trek but also your friends’ and family members’ experience as they follow your progress in real time. It allows your followers on Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms to see exactly where you are, while you’re there. We post updates about what you’re doing and maps of your exact location and also lead your followers back to our website for further information.

TrekTraka provides an exciting way for you to include your friends, colleagues and loved ones on your trek. Can’t you just picture the guys from the footy club or the team at work gathering around the bar or the water cooler chatting about what you’re up to?


Communication

Your friends and family will feel as if they’re the proverbial ‘fly on the wall’ on your trek. We use Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and our forums to post regular updates of each tour’s progress in real time.

Android and iPhone apps

Our website forum is a mecca for Kokoda trekking enthusiasts. Your friends and family back home can drop in and keep up to date with your progress. We can post replies directly from you back to them so they know you are travelling well and so that they can feel as though they’re sharing your adventure with you. The app is free and is available for Android and iPhone.

At Kokoda Trekking, we make it our business to make your Kokoda Trail experience as rewarding and complete as possible. Our use of technology is just one way we cater to safety and social considerations. To view more reasons why you should choose us, click here.
