Beautiful, historical place. The name of the cave says it all… Naihehe means ‘a place to get lost’. Naihehe Cave was home to the 'Sautabu' people during Fiji's tribal warfare days. Great for a day trip!

It was awesome to visit this cave whereby you have to bend right down so that we can pass the pregnancy gap, than experience and to see what the cave had to offer. The fun part was to off our torches and to shout out BULA on top of our voices, to hear the echo of our shouts. Its worth... More

Coastal Inland Tours picked us up on the Coral Coast and took us back to Sigatoka, where we learned about Kava Ceremonies. They have a very nice store where they tell you about the cannibal tools and Fijian crafts. We left for the Naihehe Cave. When you arrive at the village you are invited into a village home where the... More

We visited the caves through Off Road Cave Safari and it was an awesome experience to see something a bit different and hear all the stories about the caves.

Amazing trip thank you to Kesa and Ace, luch, water, sarong and kava ceremony with the priest all included in the package. Not for those with knee problems as you will need to crawl through the pregnancy gap...LOL Highly recommended, book the tour through your tour desk at the hotel or Sigatoka Off Road Safari.

On entrance to the caves we encountered a heap of bird nests which we saw a little bird coming out of his nest - amazing. We headed to the pregnancy entrance, crossing through into the beginning of a world of history and knowledge. We strolled through the cave checking out every section of the caves. The cannibal cook oven, weapon... More

A great way to see how the local village hid the villagers when attacked, from the low entrance that the warriors would club as the attackers entered, to the "oven" where "meals of the attackers" were prepared for the villagers.
