Enjoy strolling around the traditional villages, where fishermen mend their nets and women prepare kasoami, a local dish made of cassava, among the authentic stilt houses, while others just enjoy a cool breeze on a sunny day. Watch the talented women of the Pajam cultural centre make sarongs or discover Tampara—the “Garden of Eden” of Kaledupa—where a heavenly variety of fruits and vegetables grow.
You can also head to Langge Harbour to rent a boat and simply cruise between the small islands. Some of these islands are small and rocky with small villages climbing up the hills along the coast, while others are completely unsettled, with their main inhabitants being the yellow-crested cockatoos who may join you on your journey as travel companions.
You can swim or snorkel in the crystal clear waters and, if you’re lucky, you might catch sight of a pod of dolphins in the lagoon, while closer to the coast you can also explore the stunning mangrove forests. The nearby small Bajo village of Lohoa is also a site to behold, as it seems to float above the sea.
Limbo Langge is about a 30 minutes drive from Ambeua Harbor. A variety of traditional homestays are open to welcome visitors to the area.
The area of Pajam is home to the traditional villages of Palea and Jámeraka. Located up in the hills, the area offers majestic views over the island. It was the site of the island’s first settlement and still serves as the cultural centre of Limbo Langge today.
Pajam is known for its sarongs, and many women can be seen, hard at work, weav-ing the cloth in their homes. The ancient art form has been passed down from generation to generation, with mothers teaching their daughters from an early age.
Kaledupa is a green gem, blessed with lush forests and a great variety of fauna, but without doubt, it is the fertile soil of Tampara, a small village located in Limbo Langge, that brings forth the riches of the earth in the greatest abundance. The agricultural heart of the region abounds with fruit, vegetables, herbs and spices.
For food lovers it is possible to take a tour of the small organic micro-farms, where you can learn all about the local’s crops. After this, you can join a cooking class to learn how to prepare these fruits, vegetables and spices to perfection and then enjoy your creation at a collective dinner.
