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

We attended the morning tour on the 16th January and enjoyed it as much as we did a few years ago. The routine was the same with a very punctual pick up from the resort and pit stop at Sigatoka town. Everything is well organised. The tour guides (bus and boat) are knowledgeable and funny. Our captain Freddy introduced us... More

the river cruise was a lot of fun with the 360 degree spins and the village tour was great as we got to see some true fijian culture with the food that was cooked by the villagers and the beautiful songs they sang for us.

Worth every penny if you want to see a more traditional Fiji and also have a great fun boat ride!!! Suggest purchasing gifts for the kids prior to the tour (pencils books etc) as it's a bit expensive in the tour shop.

I totally recommend this trip if you are somewhere near the Sigatoka city. Riding boat at great speed, visiting village , great stories and lots of fun. I am at Fiji for 11 days, but today I really got closer to Fiji culture.

My partner and I did this recently. We were picked up from our resort, and taken to town to buy from their tour store in Sigatoka. If you would like to get items for the kids, go to the Variety Store next door and get a bunch of second hand books that are a few dollars each. About $20-30 cheaper... More
