Owner description: Notable for its massive size and unusual natural characteristics, this cave was once a fortress for a cannibal tribe and still contains a cannibal oven and other reminders of this gruesome history.

There are a few tours that go to this cave, we chose Coastal Inland tours. It was great, more of an authentic experience, Mark the Sautabu village spokesman was a wonderful guide and the lunch at the village was great, have never tasted fresh juice like theirs before.

Caves are dark, you have to walk through water thats knee height, crouching to get under a low cave point. the history of the place was intriguing! i didnt know what I was expecting!

This little excursion shows me another side of Fiji besides the resort, diving and food. I was delighted to see the villages and homes in a car ride to the cave. The Kava ceremony was for tourist but it's eye opening for me. The taste of kava is definitely different from anything I have had before. Visiting the cave and learning the history was a good way to spend a day. In the cave was where over 400 women and children spent a month during a tribal war. They even have the pothole where human was cooked in. It's creepy and yet it's worth seeing ! I would recommend it.

What a sight - limestone caves complete with cooking cave pot, dating back to the days of cannibalism. The caves even have a supposed thigh bone left behind at the cooking pot but I suspect this is just for show. The chief welcomes us with a kava ceremony and then escorts us through into this fascinating cave system, plus before this you get to drive through villages and dirt tracks to get to the caves, after a short crossing of the Sigatoka River - the longest river in Fiji. Excellent experience.

Can highly recommend this tour. Was very easy to book via our accommodation and was very well organised.

The tour itself was amazing. Breathtaking landscapes on the river and then an afternoon spent in a traditional Fijian village.

The jet-boat was put to good use on the return trip down the river with plenty of 360 degree spins which delighted my children.
