My partner and I travelled to Fiji in December 2015 and had a fantastic experience in our Sigatoka River Safari. The bus ride was great enabling us to view more of Fiji. The river cruise up the river was excellent stopping along the way to be provided with information from our tour guide. Upon arriving we experienced our first kava... More

We travelled as a couple and turned up to find that we had the river safari to ourselves. ( the jet boat was full the previous safari- luck of the draw) Captain Jack stopped several times going up river to give us many insights into both the history of the river and current happenings. Were then met at the village... More

Absolutely awesome tour. Amazing experience visiting the Naveyaga village and meeting the beautiful community! We were treated to a beautiful feast, kava ceremony and then some dancing with the locals. Our guide at the village was brilliant! And Captain Mike was wonderful, also what a driver! A day we will never forget!

We've taken this attraction Feb 8, with boat captain Jack. Tour actually consists of 2 parts - one is a boat ride itself, while biggest time of the tour is spent in actual real Fijian village directly interacting with them - starting from a formal kava ceremony with village chief and then lunch, and dance with locals. Reall nice welcoming... More

We travelled on the morning trip on Monday 01/02/16 and our driver was Freddie. He stopped along the way and gave us information. There were only 4 of us on our boat so it felt like a personalised trip. We raced up the river, waved to locals on the way and went to the 3rd village where we were met... More

We got to go onto the smaller speed boat there was 4 of us and our captain Laps (he made it) after cruising on the Sigatoka river we... More

We really enjoyed this experience, the bus trip was very informative and the guide told us a lot of interesting information about the area. Went to the launch area and met our driver Captain Freddy. We were lucky to only have another family of 4 with us. What awesome fun to go along the river and Captain Freddy was a... More

While visiting Fiji recently we wanted to visit a village and experience a little of Fijian culture. We were not disappointed. We participated in a kava ceremony, learnt about the history and culture of the village, were treated to a meal of local produce, prepared by the ladies, followed by many of the villagers singing and involving us in dancing....
