Notable for its massive size and unusual natural characteristics, this cave was once a fortress for a cannibal tribe and still contains a cannibal oven and other reminders of this gruesome history.

Great experience.

Enjoyed learning about Fiji's history. Ace and Kesa were excellent guides. Went with the Off Road Cave Safari out of Sigatoka and was impressed with the whole experience.

We joined Lino Cappuccino (tours based from just down the beach from The Warwick -200m to right of Nadi wing). Cheaper than the resort and excellent local guides. We first Took a local bus into Sagatoka - fun experience, with late 60s music to sing along with. Some shopping in town then private taxi with 'Bapu' in his week old... More

Amazing trip thank you to Kesa and Ace, luch, water, sarong and kava ceremony with the priest all included in the package. Not for those with knee problems as you will need to crawl through the pregnancy gap...LOL Highly recommended, book the tour through your tour desk at the hotel or Sigatoka Off Road Safari.

On entrance to the caves we encountered a heap of bird nests which we saw a little bird coming out of his nest - amazing. We headed to the pregnancy entrance, crossing through into the beginning of a world of history and knowledge. We strolled through the cave checking out every section of the caves. The cannibal cook oven, weapon... More

A great way to see how the local village hid the villagers when attacked, from the low entrance that the warriors would club as the attackers entered, to the "oven" where "meals of the attackers" were prepared for the villagers.

We really enjoyed visiting this cave and learning about its history plus the local area and villages. We were on a great tour. But be careful who you book with - we were met by one young family whilst having lunch, from another tour. They wanted to make contact with us as they weren't confident in their guide or car...

It was all so great. The 4wd trip to get there, the welcome ceremony in the village with kava and then the cave tour its self. Informative, educational and fab experience. We went with Tia and Ben from 'Off Road Cave Safari' had the best time.

My friends and I went on the Naihehe Cannibals Cave Tour organised through our accomodation tour desk Pacific Destinations and were very disappointed. We were picked in a car by the driver and driven to a local village where we met our guide, a young lady who lived within the village. We walked behind our guide for about 25 minutes... More

This was the only tour we did in Fiji and we were really disappointed. Between two of us it was just under FJ$400, so we were expecting a really good tour. The Billy Billy ride was all of 6 metres across the knee high river to the other side pushed by the local kids, who came along with us. The... More
