You may come across wild river ducks, white and black heron, and other native birds.After cruising for an hour you will come to the Magic Waterfall, Navua's tallest cascade. Enjoy a refreshing swim in the crystal clear pools beneath the falls before climbing aboard a bamboo raft for a smooth, 30-minute ride on the method of transport favored by Fiji's native ancestors. Your next stop is a traditional village, where a Fijian Warrior will escort you to the bure, or village meeting house. Experience some of Fiji's age-old customs and traditions including the performance of a welcome yaqona ceremony where you have the opportunity to try kava, a local drink made from the root of the kava plant.

After a war dance performed by the young men of the village, perhaps test your own sense of rhythm by joining in with a 'snake dance.' Try your hand at tapa painting on traditional cloth and see women plaiting Fijian mats. Then it is time to unearth your lovo lunch – meat, fish and vegetables such as cassava and wild yams which are wrapped in banana leaves and cooked underground before being served with salads and fruit.After lunch, your driver will return you to your hotel, where the tour ends.
