A Safari and Village Visit in One

We had no idea what to expect on this river safari that took us down the Sigatoka River to a local Village. We were given life vests and strapped into a high-speed boat, specifically designed to navigate the shallow waters of the river. Our guide was a charismatic Fijian man named Jack, and he gave us a thrill deftly navigating the winding river and even, to our joy and dismay, spinning the boat out three times. On purpose, of course.

The village visit was eye-opening: Many Fijians still live in villages led by chiefs. Upon arrival, we presented the chief with kava, and the men in the village sang a welcome song. We also witnessed a traditional kava ceremony.
