Nature Safaris

Large arrow left

Nature lovers and history buffs alike will enjoy piling into a Land Rover or other four-wheel-drive vehicle for an off-road excursion to see Bora-Bora’s flora and fauna. During the trip, your Polynesian guide will cover a slew of topics, explaining the island’s volcanic origins, describing traditional plant-based medicinal practices and pointing out ancient religious sites. Expect to witness the cannons left behind by American forces after World War II; the same soldiers built the airport’s original runway. You'll also catch some pretty terrific views.
