About
To fully experience the incredible Tannese culture, the "Nikinamap Toka Dance" captivates you with its vibrant dances and intriguing kastom ceremonies. See first hand dances that celebrate significant dates and seasons in local village life – the harvesting of the yam, traditional circumcision ceremonies, and the famous toka dance which celebrates unity in an island once known for tribal war and cannibalism. The Tannese culture is closely linked with our natural environment, so it is fitting that part of our tour includes a guided walk from our village down to Vanuatu’s (& possibly the worlds) biggest banyan tree, which has to be seen to be believed! It is the village children's own personal jungle gym and boasts of at least 3 trunks and a canopy expanse filling an entire valley. Here you will wind your way through a network of pathways in and around, up, over and through the giant tree.

I had visited the Big Banyan before and this trip took my adult son and 2 friends and they loved visiting this immense tree! It is truly a wonder of nature. We went via the village and saw the Toka dancers which were also a highlight and kept the trip interesting. A great tour thanks Tokotan tours!

If you want to know culture, the kindness of people and have a unique experience then this is 100% the tour for you. It was a highlight of my visit to Tanna. To dance the Toka dance with the locals I will remember forever. I walked to the Banyan tree and you cannot describe this it’s something you have to see with your own eyes. Don’t hesitate to experience this tour. In short it was AWESOME!
