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

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

We have just spent a wonderful fortnight at Bobo's Farm near the village of Rukuruku, on Ovalau, Fiji. We are a family of four with two boys aged 9 and 7 on a gap year together and have just spent a fortnight with Bobo and Karin. This was the only place we had booked prior to leaving home 8 months...

We had an amazing time at Bobo's and Karin's. They really make you feel at home. We stayed there for 9 days. We came a day to late because of delayed flight but this was not a problem and didnt need to pay for that night. Bobo loves to entertain, inform you and show you around. If you want more... More

Bobo is quite a character, seeks to set you at ease. If you need a little more private space, simply let him know. He is gracious about it. I liked th Fijan food, the hammock on the terrace and the dips in the pool. The beach ist not fantastic, but ok.

We recently spent five nights at Bobo’s Farm, and despite our group of six ranging in age from eight months to seventy-one years we were beautifully cared for by Bobo and Karin. The meals prepared by Karin, Oona and Artetha from the nearby gardens, creek and sea were delicious and nutritious, and whilst trundling us on various adventures to the... More

Our few days with Bobo and Karin we the highlight of our couple of weeks in Fiji. In fact they were probably the highlight of all my travels so far. Ovalau is a little bit complicated to get to - the one ferry wasn't travelling on the day we were to set off (Wednesday) - but don't let that put... More
