Bobo's farm is located on the western side of Ovalau, a small island off the east coast of Viti Levu. Bobo is an awesome guy. 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. The guesthouse is 40 yards or so away from there farm, so you have a little privacy if you want. The cooking is amazing, all fresh seafood and very, very tasty. Bobo can take you out on fishing trips, snorkelling trips and all for a really good price.
If you are looking for a real, authentic Fijian experience and you don't want to spend your holiday in the big, fancy resorts, I strongly recommend you to go to Bobo. Me and my girlfriend only spent 2 nights here last June, but we definately would have stayed longer if we had more time.
One more important thing. When you buy your tickets for the ferry, make sure you buy your tickets to Buresala! Not to Levuka! This will save you a long busride on Ovalau itself; Buresala is closer to Bobo's farm.
