spring pools, riding horses, bamboo rafting, visits to plantations
and village explorations. Very remote and one of our all-time
Ancient Cave Discovery
Trek through Fiji's "salad bowl" region to one of the last
fortresses of Fiji's cannibal history. Crawl through passages to
discover a sacred cave where cannibal ceremonies once took place
for an insightful, out-of-the-ordinary Fiji vacation experience.
Cannibal oven and ritual platform still remain intact. A descendent
of the last cannibal tribe will be your guide. This glimpse of
indigenous Fijian culture is arresting and insightful.
Sigatoka Sand Dunes
In July 1989, the Sigatoka Sand Dunes were designated as Fiji's
first National Park and their management handed over to the
National Trust of Fiji. The Dunes are a unique feature of Fiji's
National Heritage. They form an area of outstanding natural beauty
covering 650 hectares, and offer a rich combination of interesting
features. Archaeological excavations on the eastern end of the
dunes have revealed a substantial ancient burial complex. The
western end of the Park is important in that it provides a
typical-and now rare-example of natural Fijian beach forest. There
are 165 recorded plant species growing in the park. The park
supports a small population of reptiles and migratory birds.
Kula Eco Park
Kula is located on Queens Road, opposite the Outrigger Reef
Resort east of Sigatoka town. Being Fiji's only wildlife park, Kula
is the breeding center for Fiji's endangered species. The park
provides free hands-on environmental education to Fiji's children.
Visitors can spend hours observing parrots, lorikeets, falcons,
hawks, fruit bats, snakes, iguanas and marine life. Learn about
Fiji's flora and fauna in natural settings.
Inland Valley Tour
An exhilarating way to tour Fiji, take a 4WD safari into the
interior, over hills and across rivers. Stop at a nature reserve to
take in the local flora and fauna, and hold a rare Fijian crested
iguana. Visit the island pottery village, where women demonstrate a
craft handed down by the ancestors. A visit to a Tongan hill fort,
guided by one of the descendants, offers a glimpse of early tribal
life. At twilight, motor into an Indian village, for an authentic
family dinner prepared by your Indian hosts.
Trek to a giant 120-foot waterfall, steeped in mystery and
legend. A crystal clear swimming lagoon hosts therapeutic waters,
amidst a wondrous setting of ancient trees and lush tropical
Traditional Village Experience
This is a great opportunity to get way out of the tourist ruts
and experience "real life" during your trip to Fiji. Our friends
from the village invite you to join in with their daily lives. You
will be met by your village guide, and become immersed in native
life. Join a herbal medicine man or woman to explore the native
plants and herbs found in the rainforest. Join in local style
fishing as you hunt for prawns, and fish for your lunch. Learn to
prepare a lovo pit (underground oven), and try your hand
at village handicrafts. Village guides will take you on a trek
through some of their sacred sites, and tell you the legends and
spirits that abound in the area. Help prepare your feast, and eat,
island style, on mats in the common meeting room.
Navua River Safari
Your journey begins on a motor boat which takes you up the
scenic Navua River, passing waterfalls and deep gorges. Visit a
traditional Fijian village, and enjoy a traditional Fijian lunch.
Join in a kava ceremony, an ancient Fijian rite, involving
the ritualized imbibing of yaqona, made from pepper-plant
roots and reserved in former times for chiefs and priests. Sipping
kava may make your lips tingle and your head feel numb, but
according to local tradition you've entered into communion with the
world of the spirits. Enjoy a relaxing swim in fresh mountain
Coastal Sea Kayaking
Travel to the protected waters of Beqa Island. Drop anchor and
launch sea kayaks to explore the white sandy beaches, coral gardens
and tranquility of uninhabited Nanuku Island. Paddle deep into the
cliff-lined interior to Lawaqalevu Island, where hundreds of fruit
bats cling to the surrounding trees like overripe fruit. Tide
permitting, paddle through a secret mangrove tunnel that leads to
the great blue beyond - a truly unforgettable Fiji travel
experience. Here views of surrounding islands, snorkeling, island
exploration and peaceful paddling fill the remainder of the
afternoon. Conclude the journey by riding the waves and chasing the
setting sun back to the mainland.
Biking Fiji's Interior
Begin your trek along the scenic Coral Coast highway, then take
your bike journey into the rainforests and jungles of the Upper
Navua River. This 20-mile-plus route will take you high into Fiji's
interior. Overnight at one of the local villages, joining with the
villagers for a bowl of kava and ancient stories, or return to your
resort on the Coral Coast for the evening.
