We went out on our own today exploring. We were on the hunt for two places. One is the Tuveni hillfort. This is the place were a Tongan chief settled when he left to come to Fiji in 1800s. The settlement is on a beautiful outcropping of limestone high above the Sigatoka river just north of Sigatoka. There are yavus... More

This is a really interesting place to visit. A slice of history of the local area, well signposted and informative. A bonus is a stunning view of the Sigatoka River below.

This understated site is full of Fijian history and well worth a visit and stroll around the area. A number of tours include this stop in their itineraries, some are better than others.

Very interesting. The guide was lovely and had a huge amount of knowledge. I really felt for the original inhabitants and how their lives were destroyed. However it is good to go to these places to get an appreciation of the culture and history of the people.

A beautifully place to discover some of Fiji's history, embedded in tribal warfare and cannibalism! The lady who showed us around was a direct descendant of the history of this fort and was very lovely and was very up to date of what the fort was and where it was heading.

We enjoyed our visit to this site, both talking with the local guide and wandering around the fortress area, identifying some of what remains from the day when it was an active fort.

Historical site which isn't far from the local town Sigatoka. Certainly enjoyed the walk through history and to still see some of the ancient pottery still scattered around, along with old coral attached to some of the stones was amazing. I find it very hard to describe just how one feels when you are actually walking through history. This place... More

The lady who was there showed us everything we needed to know. A fist hand experience of where people lived in Fiji and the history of this village is fascinating. The view of the river below is spectacular and the drive to the village takes you through some beautiful villages in Fiji

This is a historical site so don't go expecting to "see" the history, but to learn about it and the ways of the olden times. Personally I loved this. We did this in the rain and had a blast doing it. The lovely host lady at the entrance/information centre was very worried and tried to give us all umbrellas (which... More
