Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A 40 min hike to the Waisali Falls is well worth it for a cooling swim. Single track trail can be muddy and slippery after a rain and protruding roots, so boots or at least walking sticks are recommended.

This is a 40 minute hike with definitely uneven paths. Wear shoes with treads, or be confident in your normal footing. It is a mix of uphill and downhill as you're making your way in. You'll absolutely need a guide, because the entrance is hidden and the path isn't always clear, but once you get to the waterfall it's AMAZING!!

We had a lovely walk in the humid, lush rainforest. The trail is well prepared but you need good shoes because it can get slippery. The ranger provided very good information on the animals we might encounter but the wildlife did not cooperate this time. From the beginning of the trail there are beautiful views!

We were made very welcome by the attendant who explained a little about the Rainforest and then we set off. It is a strenuous hike but it gives you great insight in to the local endemic plants. It is just off the main road between Savusavu and Labasa and for 10 Fijian Dollars is very very good value, we enjoyed our visit there immensely!!

We specifically set out in our hire car to find this place as it was a hot day and we wanted to visit a waterfall. It was about an hour from where we were staying. When we arrived the gates were closed despite the sign saying it should have been open. We called the number on the sign only to be told that the ranger would not be in that day. I had extreme trouble understanding anything else that was said. It was a shame as the view from the road just uphill of the gates was stunning. Unhappy that we wasted a day on trying to visit this attraction.

A must see when on Vanua Levu. The sights and the surroundings are amazing. If on a hot day going here will help you cool slightly.

This rainforest definitely lives up to its name. Thus, despite the well-graded paths, I'd strongly recommend being in shape for hiking and using local guides who are nimble but not necessarily talkative. Despite the signage that suggests abundant birds, our large group with a late morning arrival (both deterrents to birding) spotted a few birds at the entry where basic bathrooms are available. Actually more birds were seen on poles and wires on the ride up to the rainforest. On the positive side the lush flora features delicate orchids and colorful mushrooms.

Wen there with expectations of seeing bird life and rainforest. It was stated that it was a moderate walk. Not so there were several elderly that were unable to sustain the trek, it was a long walk down the side of a very steep hill to a small creek and cave at bottom. The walk back on a hot humid day steep and long, several people needed the help of the local guides who carried these people up the steep incline and to the waiting bus. The most I saw was long weeds and grass, not really a rainforest as such, I didnt see any bird life, very disappointing for the cost.

We did this on our last day in Savusavu. You have to call the phone number on the sign so the caretaker/villager who was on a plantation a few minutes away can guide you in (we went & picked him up & later dropped him off) - in case the main gate is unmanned & locked. The experience as mentioned was great as it gives you a rain-forest feel. However, it's more of a stream than a waterfall - for a real waterfall experience, please check out Vuadomo Village and Waterfall which is closer to Savusavu.

I had arranged a taxi to take me there at 8:30 a.m. as I hoped to see some birds. While I did see a few birds - not as many as I had hoped - the walk itself is beautiful and quite worth it. (I made the mistake of initially walking through with the ranger who was not, himself, particularly interested in waiting and watching for birds. I walked the entire trail again myself and did see some, although it was already mid-morning.) What may be helpful to some people who expressed disappointment at finding the reserve closed during scheduled opening hours is what I learned incidental to my visit. It was not by coincidence that my taxi arrived at the reserve roughly the same time as the ranger, who arrived by bus (and might possibly not have opened up that day, had my visit not been pre-arranged.) The previous day, he had, apparently, received a total of 52 visitors from the cruise ship in port. He also indicated that birdwatchers usually liked to come much earlier in the morning - as early as 6 or 6:30 a.m. - which, obviously needs to be arranged ahead of time. While the ranger presumably works something like a normal work week in total, it does not necessarily bear much relation to the scheduled opening hours. So, the take-away from this is: schedule in advance to avoid finding the place closed (and be aware that early hours are possible too.)
