As a South Pacific expert your Discover South Pacific advisor has access to exceptional experiences such as Jet-Boating Safari, Whitewater Rafting, attending a Kava Ceremony.
Here are a few of our top recommended experiences!
Safari on the Sigatoka River
Venture into the heart and soul of Fiji while cruising the Sigatoka River aboard custom-built safari jet boats. Throughout the journey, your expert captain and guide introduces you to the island’s rich culture, history, customs and legends. Visit traditional villages and experience a day in the life of the real Kaiviti (Fijian) while lunching with the locals. Women will fit right in wearing their complimentary sulus (sarongs).
Rafting the Upper Navua River
Navigate one of the most dramatic river canyons on earth. Slicing a deep chasm through the island’s tropical interior, the Upper Navua River is shrouded in lush rainforest and protected by challenging rapids. Travelers with some rafting experience can join expert guides paddling exciting class II/III whitewater, finding hidden grottoes and countless waterfalls.
Snorkeling Savala Island
Don your mask and fins and explore brilliant coral reefs during a day on Savala Island, a private island paradise. Go kayaking, try stand-up paddleboarding, take a glass-bottom boat ride or simply listen as the resident storyteller shares the “tale of the coconut.”
Sharing the Kava Bowl
Participate in the ancient kava ceremony in Navala, Fiji’s last traditional village. Kava is a drink made from pulverized pepper plant root, and it plays a central role in island life. You’ll also tour the village, mingle with the schoolchildren, lunch on authentic Fijian cuisine and perhaps go horseback riding through the lush Highlands.
