Ekasup Village is only around 10 minutes from Port Vila and set in the heart of the Erakor Rain Forest, where you’ll be welcomed by the Chief at the village entrance, complete with native costumes. It is the perfect introduction to the culture and traditions of the Melanesian people which have been passed on for centuries in Vanuatu.
Watch and marvel at the ceremonies, taste traditionally cooked food and find out how they caught it. And discover what Ekasup Villagers value and how they preserve or prepare their food on a daily basis with no electricity. Experience also the ancient culture and customs of Melanesian with a unique insight into the village ancestor’s way of life and the traditional ways in which they use native herbs for medicine, weave mats, make hunting traps and prepare and preserve food with herbs and for roasting.
