Your Mini-Coach driver will provide you with interesting information about the Sigatoka Valley or as it is otherwise known “The Salad Bowl of Fiji”.
Upon arrival at the valley departure point, you are welcomed and provided with life jackets for the impending safari adventure. Safety drills are provided to all, the chief is appointed and you’re off to discover the heart and soul of Fiji.
As you venture upriver, you will be left in awe by the amazing natural scenery which will have you reaching for your camera or iPhone to capture moments that will take your breath away.
Arriving at your designed village you will be greeted by your guide who will welcome you like long lost family. Your village guide will walk you to the community hall to present your “sevusevu” or kava with the designated tour chief receiving the first bowl of kava…BULA!!
Once the formalities are over, you are now part of the village. You will be shown around and meeting the beautiful Fijian people on their terms, seeing first hand real village life. From there you will join the community in a Fijian lunch prepared by the women, tasting food and fruits grown in the farm nearby. The Safari tour is all about giving your five senses (seeing, hearing, touch, tasting, smell) a truly Fijian experience.
Your time with your new friends will fly by as you enjoy their Fijian hospitality which includes dancing and singing. The farewell song of Isa Lei will be sung to you and for some tears will flow, but you will leave knowing you have made new friends and memories that will last a life time. You will soon agree that your hearts have been warmed, you soul has been touched and that Sigatoka River Safari is “Simply Unforgettable”.
