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

It was truly amazing to be able to share a Kava ceremony, a meal and a dance with the native Fiji people. The boat ride was so much fun, when we were there the river was low, and all the boat drivers have no problem drifting their speedboats around corners to stay in the deepest water possible. It was so... More

If you can find a better way to combine adventure with culture in Fiji then please let me know. We traveled via jet boat with a more than competent driver who was friendly and knowledgeable called Freddy, along the Sigatoka river to one of the many villages dotted along the banks. The village tour, kava ceremony and lunch followed by... More

My partner and I took a much needed break to Fiji and saw this tour advertised at the resort. Every dollar was worth it. From the concise pick up and drop off to the humourous laughter to the boat. "Lady Ga ga" and "spongebob" (driver of the bus) had us all in fits of laughter to tje water's edge. The... More

We had the most amazing trip. Our elderly mother was with us and had difficulty climbing in and out of the boat but there were so many willing hands to help her. When we arrived at the village location she was treated like a queen and carried to the village as the track was rough and steep. When we arrived... More

We were collected from our resort on the Coral Coast and taken into Sigatoka before departing for our River Safari. A big Bula welcome! The Fijians are the most welcoming, friendly people we have ever met. Thanks to Lady Gaga and Spongebob for our entertaining, informative trip to the river. Thanks also to Captain Lam, our Jet Boat driver. Great... More

This was also a good trip. I did it with my Wife and 2 adult children and very young granddaughter. You basically get bussed (Bus driver Jo) to a town where you have to register. From there you are on a bus with a guide that tells you a little about the area you are in. We had Bella, who... More

This trip highly recommended. We took this trip with our 2 boys aged 7 and 4 and they described this as the "best day ever". The bus trip to the boat was amazing with beautiful views and great commentary. The boat trip up the Sigatoka River to the village provided us with the chance to learn about the river and... More
