Nice Super Bowl spread you’ve got there.

Chili, nachos... is that tzatziki? Good call on the tzatziki.

But to spice things up, we brought some fang-toothed frogs, giant rats and reformed cannibals...

Get fully vaccinated for the Bosavi Crater Expedition, a 23-day trip into the depths of an extinct volcano in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, taking reservations now.

Few outsiders have ever set foot here, so we don’t have many spoilers for you. But here’s a quick primer:

It’s basically a real-life Skull Island.
A 3,000-foot crater wall keeps its inhabitants—like giant woolly rats and tree kangaroosfrom appearing anywhere else on earth. So play your cards right, and you could have a butterfly named in your honor.

Brush up on your survival skills.
You’ll have to spearfish for food and build your own shelter. Kidding. There’ll be guides to help you. And at least one airdrop of supplies.

You’ll meet an ex-cannibal.
He’s the local tribe’s elder statesman, and remembers what life was like before Westerners arrived and they banned... well, not trans fats.

Not everything is so rough.
You’ll feast at a pig roast. Take a leisurely canoe trip. And on your arrival and departure, you’ll stay in the nicest hotel in the capital, Port Moresby.

Best breakfast buffet for 1,000 miles, we hear.
