RECENT VISITOR COMMENTS

"Thank you very much for a wonderful stay in a unique location. It is a glorious unspoilt island and is a treasure for the Solomons. Its pristine environment is a credit to its caretakers.’’
Geraldine and Tim George, Honiara/Australia

“One of the best conservation and tourism programs in the Solomon Islands. I wish you well.’’
Mark Ligo

“What a wonderful place with wonderful people. Where in the whole world can you walk through virgin equatorial rainforest and then swim in a lagoon and see turtles, barracuda, bumphead parrotfish, sharks and even dugong, in crystal clear water? Tetepare is unique and will be ever more unique and cherished as much of the world deteriorates environmentally. Congratulations to the TDA for their foresight and commitment and increasingly evident success. The world is indebted to you.’’
Gregory Mackenzie, Sydney Australia

“Tetepare is a very special place. The snorkelling was out of this world. Had fun watching the turtles and crocodiles. Fantastic food.’’
Debbie Bax, New Zealand

“Tetepare is a very special and beautiful place. Congratulations to everyone for your hard work to conserve it. Don’t give up the fight.’’
Anne-Marie Byrne, Sydney Australia

“What an incredible island! Such an amazing history, landscape and fauna/flora. But above all, the stay is made so special by the enthusiasm, interest, humour and attention to detail of the lovely staff. And of course, the food, which is better than anything in Honiara. The Tetepare project should be an important part of the future of tourism in the Solomons and long may the funding and the support of the Tetepare Descendants’ continue."
William Baron, CBSI
