Our flag ship authentic cultural tour "The Village Tour" continues to be the most popular tour among visitors wanting to experience the real Fiji. The village tour allows you to immerse yourself into the traditional Fijian indigenous culture which includes the traditional Kava welcome ceremony, traditional cultural dancing & singing, tours of the village including the school, chiefs house and church. The village tour can be combined with a traditional lovo lunch (underground cooking).
Visitors to our village of Tau will also get the opportunity to visit the local school (except for school holidays). All Fijian villages take pride in their schools as we take pride in our local Tau village school. No matter how small their annual budget is (and it is invariably tiny), the teachers work long and hard to get the best education possible for the children. Most villages are too small to have anything but a primary school, so older kids often have to travel many miles to the next village to attend secondary school. Boarding schools are the norm for more remote villages. If you want to bring gifts for the kids, things like pencils, rubbers, balloons, exercise books, books for the school library. They will all be put to good use, games are good too in particular ball games, rugby balls etc.
Tapa Cloth - Traditional Fiji Art
While you are in the village you may get the opportunity to see the traditional cloth Tapa. Tapa Cloth. Bark cloth, or tapa, is not a woven material, but made from bark that has been softened through a process of soaking and beating. Bark cloth is manufactured for everyday needs such as room dividers, clothing, and floor mats, as well as ceremonial uses in weddings and funerals.
Making Tapa cloth requires great skill and time to complete. The methodology has been passed down from generation to generation. The photos below show how it can also be used for ceremonial clothing, birthday & even business banners.
