The jetboat tour on the Sigatoka River is full of surprises for both the adrenaline junkie and the amateur anthropologist. The tour is described as a half day tour, but is more like a full day. We were out for seven hours, hotel collection to return. Starting from the centre in Sigatoka where you sign a waiver , collect a... More

My husband and I took "the road less travelled" last week when staying on the Coral Coast of Fiji and did the Sigatoka River Safari 4 X 4 off road Cave Tour. Excellent is the only word to describe it. Whilst a tad pricey this company gives an authentic Fiji experience enhanced by knowledgeable, friendly drivers and guides. The day... More

Earlier this year on our first trip, we said this was the best ever Fijian experience we had ever had... it's true... so when i came to Fiji again in early May 2015, I went to a different village on the Sigatoka River Safari - this time to Tuvu. You seriously run out of beautiful words to describe the way... More

Picked up from our resort promptly and then transported to Sigatoka town to change buses. Arrived at the river and the toilet facilities were very clean. Often not so in more remote areas. We had Captain Jack (not sparrow). We had humour adventure and information all day. We went up the river in the boat and went to a traditional... More

I highly recommend Sigatoka River Safari to anyone travelling to Fiji. What a wonderful experience in the village. 5 stars for Capt. Leps boat driving and and a trip full of laughter on the way home. The River is clearly the lifeblood of the villages and I felt very privileged to see it.

We visited Fiji as a family with no intention to venture out to tours until we stumbled onto this excursion. Drawn by the fact that a portion of the fee goes to the villages it vists we booked a day trip. With either morning or afternoon trips we opted for the latter.

What a fabulous morning visiting a traditional Fijian village. Captain Jack was a wonderful boat captain, getting us there and back skillfully. The village was just a treat. You can not afford to miss this experience. The villagers were just beautiful, so welcoming and friendly. Remember to take some lollies for the kids as a gift! We highly recommend this... More
