Embark on a Sigatoka River Safari
For those who love an action-packed holiday, we recommend visiting the town of Sigatoka, where you can embark on an epic river safari adventure. Sigatoka is the largest town on Fiji’s Coral Coast and acts as an important commercial hub for local farming communities. As mentioned, the highlight here is the Sigatoka River, the longest waterway on the main Fijian island of Viti Levu.
Considered one of Fiji’s most highly awarded tourist activities, the Sigatoka River Safari blends an authentic Fijian cultural experience with an exhilarating adventure. Your day will be filled with 360-degree jet boat spins, sampling traditional kava and learning about the everyday happenings in a Fijian village.
Upon arrival in Sigatoka town, you’ll step aboard a custom-built safari jet boat to cruise your way up the magnificent Sigatoka River. Along the way, you’ll learn about the region’s rich history – including its cannibal past! – and visit an authentic Fijian village to meet the Chief and take part in a traditional kava ceremony. What we love most about this tour is that it visits a different village each day, to minimise the impact of mass tourism in such a remote region of the world!
