      Captain Fini and our village guide Simon were absolute legends. Captain Fini was so helpful with our young family and they both had a wealth of knowledge. Our experience in the village was unforgettable and we would love to do it all again one day.

      Sigatoka River Safari Tour
      This is a must do tour if you are holidaying on Viti Levu. You are picked up and dropped off at your hotel, the tour guide is awesome, the jet boat fast and the children of the village just adorable. We had Captain Jack who was an awesome Boat Master who also knew all the traditional customs and an all round great guy!

      A privilege of the privileged.
      The highlight of my time in Fiji. Captain Laps and the team were incredible. Such a privilege to spend time laughing, dancing and sharing a meal in a local village as well as seeing so much of the “real” Fiji life along the river.

      Jetting Boat Fun!
      Ace, Freddie and their team made this such a fantastic experience for my daughter and I! The people at the village were so friendly , we loved the Kava ceremony , eating a flavorful farm to table lunch, and dancing with everyone afterwards. Such an amazing experience through the entire day. Never a dull moment !

      A fabulous trip!
      A fantastic trip! Very well organised with wonderful friendly staff who made the whole day entertaining. The boat trip with Captain Finni was great fun, very exhilarating and very 'refreshing' on the way back with all the 360° spins! The visit to the Fijian village was fascinating. Seeing how they live and work as a community, and being given such a warm welcome to partake in their traditional Kava ceremony was a real privilege. The lunch was delicious. So nice to know that our visit also helps to support them and bring everyday essentials for us, like running water and electricity , to their village. Thanks to everyone involved. Highly recommended.

      A great experience!
      What a day! The jet boat is so much fun and a great way to see the river and learn about the history of the area. The village visit was fantastic, learning about the culture and traditions. Everyone was so welcoming and the meal and entertainment was amazing! The jet boat tour guide was great!

      A must unbelievable
      Fantastic experience self drove to sigatoka and took bus to cruise location. Bus trip was approximately 20 minutes upon arrival fitted with lifejackets and walked to the boat cruise down the sigatoga river. unbelievable scenery was amazing to see locals playing fishing washing in the river abundance of wildlife, including horses and cattle. Upon arriving at the village was meant by locals and given a village tour. The walk to the village was steep if you have any issues, take your time, but it worth it

      Amazing day trip!
      We had the best time! There was a miscommunication, and it ended up being just myself and a friend. They still took us on the experience as planned rather than trying to reschedule (which we would have understood). Captain Jack was great, shared stories with us, and was full of knowledge and information. The village was amazing. To be able to be a part of this for a short time was such a once in a lifetime experience that I would highly recommend to anyone! A must do while in Fiji

      Fantastic way to see Fiji
      What a great way to get out and see the true Fiji! Our family of 6 were picked up from the Shangri la and taken to the speed boats safari tour. We then visited a local village, and the people who lived their welcomed us with with a kava ceremony We ate the local food beautifully prepared for us. We want to say a special thank you to captain Jack! What a lot of fun he brings to the tour! HIGHLY RECOMMEND Worth every penny :)

      Fabulous - but longer than half a day if staying at Denarau.
      This was a fabulous tour. Captain Jack was knowledgeable, friendly & and great guide. The jet boat was so much fun, and the kava ceremony & lunch in the village were wonderful. Dancing with the villagers was so much fun. The only downside was the travel. We were at a resort on Denarau Island, and it took about 90 minutes to get to Sigatoka - this meant a half day tour went for about 8 hours.

      Fantastic day out
      We had the best day, my 6 y.o loved the off road vehicle drive by Zac and all the bumps, learning about the area we traveled through and the villages from Urma she was very knowledgeable The cave tour was fantastic Sadam who took us through and the knowledge he had about the cave that was passed down from his family was amazing Lunch was delicious. I highly recommend this tour to anyone. 1 tip I wore thongs, probably not the smartest move as I did slip abit when they got wet in the cave

      A great way to see the villages
      We had a great experience on the Jetboat cruising up the river to the villages. Our tour guide Ace was amazing, super friendly and we had a great laugh along with him. We were welcomed by the village we visited with traditional kava, lunch, dancing and singing. Beautiful people, loved hearing about their values in life.

    Well what can we say? What a great experience. I unfortunately was on Fiji time and was a bit late! But all was forgiven. Our guide Saddam(not the Iraqi one) as he quickly points out! And driver Ace - by name and experience! Were fantastic. Saddam's knowledge was exceptional he is from the local village and knew the true history of the cave. As there had been some heavy rainfall recently we had to leave the jeep a bit earlier And hike to our village for the Kava ceremony, which made us late(not my fault this time!) So the Village chief and Ace conducted this for us while we hiked to the cave. Take along beach shoes! The cave was fantastic - not as magnificent as the one in Vietnam but just as interesting, again Saddam's explanation of each chamber was very knowledgeable. 30-40 minutes in the cave then back to the village for Kava and lunch, good old snag sandwich with salad and fruit, nothing exciting but very nice. Bit muddy walking the track. Now for the fun bit! The off road Jeep got bogged! Any moment I'm thinking we have to jump out and push! But no Ace was having none of that! Reverse and forward revs making such a noise that the young men from the village came to our aid. Some more revearse and forwarding with the boys pushing us in the car, all cheering and the front passenger wheel decided to join in the party by throwing mud all over the end passengers on the left hand side! Richard (hubby) coped a spray face, arms, chest, the lady in front of him even worse and poor Saddam the worst. I think he was worried about our reactions until we all just laughed in hysterics. Ace said after he got us out that he had been working the job since 2014 and today was the highlight of his career. Please if you get Ace or Saddam as your driver and guide mention the bogging! Took us at least 30 minutes to get out!

    Vanessa and I loved the Cave Safari so much and have not stopped talking about the wonderful Sadam and also Ace who drove us so beautifully from our hotel and off road through the villages and valleys. The other team member was also a star but sadly his name escapes us. Nothing else escaped us though, we had a beautiful tour through the lush vegetation, waving to the gorgeous children and seeing what the average visitor to Fiji doesn't see. The caves, cava and lunch were all excellent experiences and we highly recommend them to anyone of any age. And music! Our guides sang us some traditional songs along the way which added to the authentic atmosphere of the trip.

    Having a local who grew up around these cave systems as our guide, was a huge boost to this already amazing tour.

    The crew that took us our were fantastic, funny and entertaining as we passed by and through the villages of their famlies and neighbours, learning all about the region they call home. The trek through the cave itself was mesmerizing as we were given an oral history of the caves, the surroundings and the impact the area had on Fijian history.
    Very very appreciative of the warmth and kindness we were shown as guests, rather than tourists to this beautiful area.

    Take this tour if you have the opportunity, you will not regret it.

    Vinaka!

    Our bus driver Zac, tour guide Saddam and buggy driver Moses is what made this excursion such a treat. All full of knowledge, enthusiasm and fun. No question was too much trouble and no request to take extra time to explore what was of interest ever an issue. We loved this trip, a chance to see the real Fiji as you take a 45 min drive into the depths of the island in the open side buggy with ‘natural aircon’. The cave system itself is not large in comparison to others we have experienced but the history is rich and well told by Saddam. We would recommend this over the jet boat and village tour for anyone who has had a jet boat experience previously.
    A special thank you to Saddam from Chief David and Mrs Chief.

    If you're going to do one tour in Fiji, I highly recommend the off road cave safari. This fantastic half day trip gives you an insight into genuine Fijian villages, lead by the absolute legend Sadam (a local himself) who was passionate about sharing how people in this area of Fiji live and informing us of the local culture. Whilst in the cave he told us of the history and more recent personal experiences of the cave.
    Moses was a fabulous driver who drove us through the villages in a very cool off road car to the priest's house where we were given permission to visit the cave. This also gave us the opportunity to introduce ourselves. (Ladies are given a sarong at the beginning of the tour to cover up & can keep the scarf afterwards)
    The cave itself was beautiful - it contained some very unique formations and it was entertaining to squeeze through the smaller gaps at the entrance to the cave. Be prepared to get your shoes drenched though! (I'd recommend wearing shorts as the water reaches your shins and higher in some parts).
    After we'd visited the cave we had a really delicious lunch and enjoyed some kava with the priest (optional) I was a little apprehensive as I'd not tried kava before, but I'm glad I went for it!
    The journey back to "base" was just as fun, with locals shouting "bula!" and giving us big waves. The children even ran over to give us a high five through the window of the vehicle - it was a very joyful experience. Overall, a really fantastic trip and a really awesome crew!

    Very enjoyable tour with the family. We got a peek into Fijian history and culture plus some stunning views of the countryside.

    We set out early from our hotel collecting other tourists along the way. Had a quick stop for a toilet break in a shop selling some lovely Fijian souvenirs and the women were given sarongs to be respectful in the kava ceremony we’d be attending later. We then hopped back on to our bus to head to the official starting point of the different tours (splitting into our Naihehe Cave tour and the jet boat tours).

    We boarded a little barge thing to cross the river (lifejackets provided) then climbed aboard a small convoy of safari cars to zip along the windy roads through the tropical forest around us. Tour guide Tia and driver Sponge Bob were fantastic, manoeuvring the paths and by other vehicles!

    We passed through a traditional Fijian village and heard about daily life for the people of the area. Tia was knowledgeable about the region and was happy to answer any questions we had.

    We presented a kava root to a Fijian priest then enjoyed a kava ceremony before going into the Naihehe Cave. Word of warning - wear shoes you are prepared to get wet! The entrance to the cave involves walking through knee-high water under the 'pregnancy gap' before you reach the large, cavernous cave!

    The tour of the cave has some physical requirements so I would recommend a reasonable level of fitness and sure-footedness – there’s only one hand rail up a small incline, there are some moments of crouching under the rocky entrance, etc. Nothing too challenging and there was an age range of children to a couple in their 70s on the tour but be mindful.

    Inside the cave we learnt more about the history and culture of the local people.

    Afterwards, the BBQ lunch provided was simple but plentiful, fresh and delicious and more opportunity to chat.

    We had a great time on this tour and was one of the highlights of our trip to Fiji. Can recommend 100%

    Also spotted a mongoose on the way back, which a thrill in itself!

    We recently experienced the Naihehe Cave tour with Moses and Saddam as our guides. Saddam was a passionate and experienced guide throughout the tour providing a wealth of knowledge on the history of the cave and those who inhabited it. Moses worked with the local chief assisting us with approval to visit the cave and to cook the bbq whilst we explored the caves wonders with Saddam. These gentlemen made the experience valuable and we recommend it to those looking for an historical insight through their eyes.

    It was a nice excursion and the guides were interesting however when we booked the tour included a bilibili ride across the river and the possibility to swim at the lunch spot. Turned out that the bilibili was lost in the flood so we had to use a jetboat and the swimhole was dry due to the time of the year. This was never mentioned ahead and the price was not adjusted accordingly, instead we were asked for a supplement for gas which was never mentioned upon booking. I was looking forward to the bilibili ride, so this was a bit disapointing as well as the fact that they are selling the pictures they take when on all the other tours they were just sending them to us.

    This tour was exactly what my family was seeking. We wanted to do something a little off the beaten path. We drove through one of the villages where the driver’s (Moses) family lived for generations. Children would run from their homes with giant smiles simply to wave at us. We were able to see beautiful landscapes, overlook valleys, and finally meet a tribal priest who blessed us before we entered a historically significant cave. The history behind this cave is absolutely incredible and I found myself asking why this cave in particular isn’t a “national heritage” site? The storyteller of the cave, Una, was incredible and she was absolutely amazing with our two boys, ages 8 and 11. My boys were fascinated with her storytelling! At the end we were given the opportunity to eat fresh grilled vegetables and fruits, all found on the farm we were on. Do not think twice about this adventure! We would do it all over again. Thank you!

    What a morning! Started driving through the villages listening to the wittiness and humour of Sadam explaining the history and culture of the area. We met the priest and continued on our journey to the cave where we had to strategically squat and walk to see the inside. Our trusty driver Moses then cooked us up a feed (bbq) and we enjoyed some kava before heading down the track high fiving the local kids in our way.
