the tombs on the side f the road - it is a grave somewhat overgrown and unkempt. Maybe the chief needs a bit more respect and a little more narrative.

The Tomb of Udre Udre is found just along the roadside. Lots of natural debris in the area due to storms, etc. Somewhat interesting to read about the history of Udre Udre before visiting. Spent about 15 minutes at his gravesite. A large tree had fallen within inches of his gravestone. Said a few kind words for all of his... More

If you want to see the tomb, keep your eyes out as you drive along the road near Raki Raki. It is on the left driving away from Wananavu but a bit hard to spot when driving. There is a clear spot across the road to leave your car though so you can walk over the the tomb and get... More

Nothing to do but take a picture! Chief ate lots of people back in the days of cannibalism. Glad they don't eat people anymore!

It's not every day that you get to say you saw the tomb of a man who ate 999 people during his lifetime. Not much else other than the tomb but definitely worth stopping by to snap a few pictures and if your driver has any stories, ask him about them! The folklore is really interesting and the myths surrounding... More

I had read mixed reviews on this attraction, but we were all interested in seeing it. We were headed through the area anyway so it was actually fun to see the chief's grave and all the stones that symbolized the people he 'ate' during his life! Was interesting to wonder about it all, especially since cannibalism only ended in the... More

Really small. You'd drive right by it id you didn't know anything. Our driver stopped, explained the story behind it, and really gave us a unique lesson on it.

What can I say? It is a grave vault that is above ground. The tomb is set off a major highway and accessible, but not for handicapped. The gruesome habits of Chief Udre Udre are the main attraction.

Ok, so there is actually nothing much to look at. It is just a large white-washed tomb alongside the road, but if you are driving around Rakiraki you may as well read about the King who ate about 872 people back in the day.
