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

After reading so many positive reviews, we felt compelled to try this half day tour. Being our first trip to Fiji, we also saw this as great way to experience some Fijian culture. The fun began on the bus ride up to the departure point, when our jovial hostess playfully pitted AFL supporters against NRL as 90% were Australians on... More

The Sigatoka River Safari is an amazing experience. As you cruise along the river you see spectacular scenery. We then met people from a local village, experienced a traditional kava ceremony and ate a home-cooked lunch. It was perfect. What great value. The staff were also hilarious. As a travel agent I would highly recommend this activity to everyone up... More
