In 1982 a devastating hurricane unleashed a flood down the Navua River and the small village of Nukusere on the banks of the Navua River was washed away.

Luckily the villagers were able to escape and re-establish themselves ten metres above the old village... so while the "singing sands" on the banks of the river no longer can be heard from the bures the name has been kept.

The village of Nukusere is in close proximity to the village of Namuamua - just a few minutes apart by water taxi, so larger groups can be accommodated by sharing between these two villages.

Your host on your Fiji holidays is Sakiusa Naivalu a comparatively wealthy businessman who owns three water taxis that run up and down the Navua River from Navua Town to Namuamua and beyond. Your guide is Arami Bai.

Activities include: bush walking, star gazing, photography and boat adventures up the river
