Step back in time on this 4WD safari exploration - the Great Sights signature tour. This trip starts at the feet of Nadi's famous Mt Batilamu or 'Sleeping Giant' and heads up through the fertile Sabeto Valley, which lies to the North of Nadi.
At the Giant's head, the road becomes a winding track and follows the beautiful Sabeto River, towards the interior of Viti Levu. The final destination is the picturesque village of Navilawa, deep inside Koroyanitu National Park.
On arrival, visitors are welcomed with a 'Sevusevu' or traditional kava ceremony in the community hall. With the blessing of the village chief, visitors can partake in the Fijian way of preparing and cooking food and feast on the delicious fruits of their labour afterwards. In order to take in this stunning setting and appreciate rural village life, visitors then have the option to join the Great Sights Fiji Guide for a brief walk into the rainforest on one of the many trails.
This easy walk ends at a natural cave that the villagers use for shelter during cyclones and is situated by a beautiful swimming hole which can also be used for a refreshing dip. Alternatively visitors can join a guided tour of the village and their gardens.
