7 of us (parents plus 5 children aged 15,13,11,8 and 5) stayed here for 3 nights in April this year and we couldn't have had a better time. From the tropical rain hammering on the roof at night, and playing night-time hopscotch on the walk over to Bobo and Karin's house for meals as we tried to avoid the hundreds... More

Honestly one of the best holidays we've had. My girlfriend and I were looking for a real "getaway" holiday and Bobo's Farm was recommended to me by my sister. Bobo and Karin own the many acres of land you'll be adventuring through in Rukuruku and treat you like family the moment you set foot on Levuka. There are numerous activities... More

This was a special experience and i highly recommend it if you aren't into big resorts and want to see the real Fij. The food was beyond amazing, and it is excellent value. It is way off the beaten path - about 45 minutes drive from the boat jetty or Levuka. You can hear the river running, and are surrounded... More

Came here with my girlfriend looking for an authentic Fijian experience. We're both currently living in the Pacific so we were keen to spend as much time in the mountains/hill areas. The accommodation was perfectly-humble and clean, in a beautifully groomed garden. The dining area overlooks a beautiful little gorge. Highlight is of course Bobo and Karen - as mentioned... More

Better late then never we are writing this review month later however, time seems to travel slower on Ovalau and not much will have changed since we went to Bobo's Farm in 2013 and now. Our family of 4 spent about 1 week at Bobo's Farm close to the Rukuruku Village and with all the worldwide travel we do, this... More

Bobo's Farm on the old capital island of Fiji, Ovalau, is a place not to be missed by travelers on a modest budget. Located in the rain forest on the opposite side of the island from the old capital of Levuca it is one of the most tranquil places I have ever been. It has only one guest house with... More

It's been 2 years since I've been here and have been meaning to write a review ever since. I will always remember Bobo's farm as one of the best things I've ever done. Karin & Bobo are one of the friendliest couples you will ever meet. They are running an inspiring self sustaining farm life here, Bobo is extremely knowledgable... More

Very friendly, very knowledgable about the history of Fiji and very keen to tell you about it. Bobo and Karin have built there farm in the bush, it's very secluded and really beautiful.

If you are looking for a Fijian resort holiday, look elsewhere. If you're looking for an authentic Fijian experience, Bobo's is the place to go. Karin & Bobo have built their farm in the middle of a beautiful rain forest. We spent only 5 nights here and would have loved to have stayed longer. The accommodation is basic but comfortable...

Bobo and Karin are excellent hosts and their property is a tropical garden hideaway. Karin is a very good cook which is important as their are no other options apart from cooking for yourself. If you do plan to cook for yourself there is a two burner with grill in the kitchen and you will need to take your own... More
