Fiji’s original and multiple award winning Sigatoka River Safari has been ranked as the number one Outdoor Activity in Viti Levu on the world’s largest travel site, TripAdvisor.
According to Managing Director Jay Whyte, “This is a real honour for the entire team. Being voted as the number one Outdoor Activity in Viti Levu by guest reviews, not voted on by a panel or committee, is a testament to the wonderful work and passion for Fiji the team has. In particular the people of the 15 villages we work with. I think the Trip Advisor forum enables people to see how other traveller’s enjoy different experiences on their travels. The Trip Advisor site helps travellers to find out first-hand information about products and experiences, resulting in more helpful recommendations on the website.”
Sigatoka River Safari previously was welcomed into TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame, a unique accolade only granted to businesses that have won the Certificate of Excellence for five years in a row.
Sigatoka River Safari is the first Safari jet-boating experience of its kind. It offers tourists of all ages a half-day adventure into the heart and soul of Fiji. Passengers travel along the Sigatoka River aboard custom-built safari jet boats and visit authentic Fijian villages, experiencing a day in the life of the real ‘kaiviti’ Passengers take part in a kava ceremony, tour an authentic village and are treated to a traditional Fijian lunch. The village visit ends with traditional Fijian singing and dancing.
Sigatoka River Safari works with 15 different villages and visits a different village every day, to minimise the impact of tourism on the village lifestyle, a key element in their success to date.
