Wow. This was worth every cent. Not a thrill seeker, but this was awesome. Great jet boat ride and then a village tour. We had kids as young as 5 on the boat and a 60 year old grandmother. All ages LOVED the whole experience.

Its a must do when you are in Fiji, To visit a traditional Fijian village and participate in the Kava Ceremony, to be welcomed by the village chief and his village and enjoy a meal followed by music and dance.

I really enjoyed this experience. The highlight for me was eating home made Fijian food. I tried everything and liked it all. My only concern was the late time of this around 4pm. Sexy boy and captain Jack our bus and boat drivers were fantastic. Both were informative friendly and a lot of laughs. Thankyou for introducing us to Bula... More

The Sigatoka River Safari delivered an experience beyond our expectations. Every detail was handled in a professional and extremely friendly manner. An exhilarating jet boat ride and a visit to an authentic Fijian village was unforgettable.

To me the jet boat goes a little against the fijian culture-would have preferred more authentic means of transport however the village visit was awesome and of course the boat was lots of fun-prepare to get wet. When you consider that the cost is about twice the weekly wage of the locals it doesn't seem quite right-if feeling guilty as... More
