We booked our tour through the bookings office at The Warwick Resort after we arrived in Fiji which was very easy. We were happy to have done the morning tour as it took up most of the day. We left our hotel on the Coral Coast and got back around 3pm so it's close enough to a full day out... More

We loved it!. They picked as up from our Resort in Denarau (Nadi) and we had a pleasant drive to Sigatoka. We then changed buses and drove up the Sigatoka river road to there depot and had a great tour guide "Mela Bela". The jet boat has a Lexus V8 it sounds great especially after doing a 360.

Lizzy Pizzy and Quinny from the Sigatoka River Safari booking service at the Shangri La resort were delightful. We had prebooked our tour in Australia, yet they took great interest in having my eight year old daughter visit their premises and share her passion for Harry Potter stories. We had heard good feedback about the Safari, but the day exceeded... More

The Sigatoka River Safari came highly recommended and did not disappoint. We were picked up from our resort by bus and taken to Tappoo in Sigatoka. We then hopped on a bus tour to take us to the river with sightseeing along the way. We got to the river and were fitted with life jackets. My husband and I were... More

I cannot recommend this tour enough. We went with our 13 and 15 year children and they have not stopped talking about it. Captain Freddy was excellent and the scenery on the way up the river breathtaking. Our visit to the Nabalebale village was extremely memorable. After a Kava ceremony we wandered through the village with one of the locals.... More

We absolutely loved the Sigatoka River Safari. We had the best jet boat tour guide "The Captain" he was funny & fun! Got to share a rare insight into how remote villages operate in Fiji. Would definitely recommend! Loved the 360 spins on the way back to the bus! FANTASTIC!

The visit to a village gave us a great insight as to how locals live. We were made to feel really welcome and enjoyed a Kava ceremony as well as local singing and dancing. We were taken to the village by jet boat which was exhilarating and so much fun. Captain Jack looked after us and gave us an experience... More
