An awesome day that was well spent with all of my colleagues on board the jet safari with Captain Jack on the wheel accompanied by Vanessa. The trip up sigatoka river was just lovely, the scenery, and waving to everyone that we went past. The fun part about this trip was visiting the village and dancing to the music that was played and also the 360 turns that we did when coming back. This is something that I recommend to anyone who is wanting to enjoy their holiday in Fiji and also if you want to know more about Fiji, please do look for Captain jack, he will tell you all about the BULA CRAP :) ......

The most incredible morning with Lady Gaga & Sponge Bob on the bus, then on the boat with the awesome Capt. Freddy, on only his "second day on the job". These guys have such a passion, respect and deep attachment to the country and the people of the villages; it adds a deep authenticity to what they share and you really have to hear it for yourself to appreciate. Then there's Freddy giving it to the boat, it's an absolute thrill ride.

But that's the least of it. The people in the village were just amazing. At first glance, they appear to have so little, at least in the way that we'd normally look. Then they put on the most incredible lunch, dancing and fun afternoon. Pretty soon you realise just how rich they really are, and it is a very humbling experience.

Our three kids, 7,5 & 2 had a blast and the day was in no way too much for them. Our 2yr old boy hasn't stopped talking about his new best buddy Capt Freddy. Anyone, of any age will love this experience. Yes, a little commonsense doesn't hurt. It's a tropical island, so if you're not used to humidity, take extra water. You're out of town, so decent shoes wouldn't hurt (that said, we all wore thongs/pluggers with no issues). All you really need is a camera, sunscreen and a sense of adventure. A gift for the village is a good touch too, just something simple like school supplies for the kids. They'll pick you up and drop you off again, you don't need to do anything but put your name down.

A must do, easily our best memories of Fiji, not that we have any bad ones. We're already planning our second time in Fiji and this is top of our list to do again.

Absolutely touched by your kind words and feedback here on TripAdvisor. We always love hearing from our friends who have visited the "Heart & Soul of Fiji" with us and to know that your Safari experience has had such an impact is truly inspiring to the entire team. We sincerely appreciate you letting us know that you all had an incredible time :)

I have shared your comments with Lesley (Lady Gaga) and I informed Cpt Freddy he has a Junior Captain in your 2yr old son :) both were all smiles and asked me to send you their biggest BULA!!!

You have articulated your family's experience so beautifully and it has touched me personally as everything you stated is precisely why I created the Safari to give other visitors to Fiji the opportunity to discover the Fijian interior and the beautiful people that make Navosa so special :) :) So please accept my personal appreciation for sharing your comments here as it truly means alot!!

We are already looking forward to welcoming you all back home to FIJI and we trust that the memories you made will keep you all smiling until the next chapter in your Fijian holidays!!

Wishing you all a great year ahead

This trip had it all. From the fantastic and helpful staff, knowledgable, humorous and skilled driver, to the lovely welcoming people at the village we visited for Kava ceremony, meal and entertainment. It was a highlight of our trip to Fiji.
