Fiji's original and the World's First jetboat & village safari,is a half-day, uniquely Fijian adventure into the "Heart and Soul of Fiji", aboard our purpose-built Safari jet boats.

Our guests will travel along the majestic Sigatoka River to visit an authentic Fijian village and experience a day in the life of the real ‘kaiviti’ (Fijian).

To bring the Safari adventure to life, your driver/guide is assigned to each group and introduces passengers to the rich culture of the Fijian people and shares the history, customs and legends of the area.

Sigatoka River Safari began operations in 2006 and quickly established itself as a premier attraction by winning the Best Fiji Experience in 2008 and Best Adventure Tour in 2007 at the annual AON Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards.

To date, Sigatoka River Safari has also won 6 consecutive Trip Advisor Excellence Awards putting itself into the Hall of Fame as the Number 1 Outdoor Activity in Fiji

The jet boat ride was fun and exciting and Captain Jake was an great skipper, had excellent people skills and was a knowledgeable and entertaining storyteller. The visit to the village was full on with welcome ceremonies, a village walk around, food and fun entertainment. A brilliant way to spend a morning without over exerting.

Visiting Fiji and decided to do the Sigatoka River Safari. What a great adventure we had, jet boat up the river, great scenery with the local villages farming and swimming in the river. Visited a local village and had lunch prepared by the women. Everyone was very welcoming. Then get ready for the return boat trip, great fun.
