Fiji's original and the World's First jetboat & village safari,is a half-day, uniquely Fijian adventure into the "Heart and Soul of Fiji", aboard our purpose-built Safari jet boats.

Our guests will travel along the majestic Sigatoka River to visit an authentic Fijian village and experience a day in the life of the real ‘kaiviti’ (Fijian).

To bring the Safari adventure to life, your driver/guide is assigned to each group and introduces passengers to the rich culture of the Fijian people and shares the history, customs and legends of the area.

Sigatoka River Safari began operations in 2006 and quickly established itself as a premier attraction by winning the Best Fiji Experience in 2008 and Best Adventure Tour in 2007 at the annual AON Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards.

To date, Sigatoka River Safari has also won 6 consecutive Trip Advisor Excellence Awards putting itself into the Hall of Fame as the Number 1 Outdoor Activity in Fiji

We honeymooned in 2013 in Fiji and did both the Jet Boat and Cave tours at the time. Three years later in 2016 we've come back and I've brought my 10 year old son with me to share the experience. My wife and I were amazed when both "Queen Margaret" and Captain Freddy remembered us. I can honestly say that... More

The Sigatoka River Safari was a unique day. The speed boat ride was fun and exhilarating. We travelled up the river and saw beautiful scenery and visited an authentic village. The people were hospitable and welcoming. The chief Ori explained village life and traditional customs. Their "way" is to look out and to help each other - a trait that... More

Amazing trip with a well run company. You get to enjoy a few angles of the local culture, help local communities as well as the natural part of the Fijian town of Sigatoka. You can't get better ways to get up close to local village culture ... you will be hosted to a cava ceremony, experience village 'cuisine' together with... More

The Sigatoka River Safari was excellent a wonderful experience. Freddy the captain was awesome, friendly and professional. We bought the tour from Maggie Roko at the Shangrila Resort and I have to say that she is amazing, friendly and very kind. I rate her services very high. I recommend this tour if you visit Fiji.
