A great way to see how the local village hid the villagers when attacked, from the low entrance that the warriors would club as the attackers entered, to the "oven" where "meals of the attackers" were prepared for the villagers.

We really enjoyed visiting this cave and learning about its history plus the local area and villages. We were on a great tour. But be careful who you book with - we were met by one young family whilst having lunch, from another tour. They wanted to make contact with us as they weren't confident in their guide or car...

It was all so great. The 4wd trip to get there, the welcome ceremony in the village with kava and then the cave tour its self. Informative, educational and fab experience. We went with Tia and Ben from 'Off Road Cave Safari' had the best time.

My friends and I went on the Naihehe Cannibals Cave Tour organised through our accomodation tour desk Pacific Destinations and were very disappointed. We were picked in a car by the driver and driven to a local village where we met our guide, a young lady who lived within the village. We walked behind our guide for about 25 minutes... More

This was the only tour we did in Fiji and we were really disappointed. Between two of us it was just under FJ$400, so we were expecting a really good tour. The Billy Billy ride was all of 6 metres across the knee high river to the other side pushed by the local kids, who came along with us. The... More

Great day experience, driver and guide Ben and Tia were very knowledgeable (although a little over scripted at times). This trip drove through several villages, gave a great view if the Sigatoga Valley with its extensive farming, included a Kava ceremony to ask permission to enter the Caves from the traditional owners and a history of the local tribes and...

we learnt a lot about local traditions and customs and had an amazing time. An easy walk with tour guides that are happy to help, and a fantastic destination with a great detail of history and an amazing awe factor!

We chose to do this site with Skellys tours, a local Fijian owned tour company. We booked through their Tambua Sands desk. For $155 each (half price for kids) we were driven to the little village - (Sautabu village) that falls on both sides of the river and boated across by some local boats. A beautiful 10 minute walk and... More
