River Tubing is about FAMILY
River Tubing Fiji is a locally owned family business providing an authentic experience with greater insights into locals way of life, and it has its roots firmly established in the rich history and culture of the Namosi Highlands.
This unique product is the brainchild of owner and founder William Rock Danford. A direct descendant of John Humphrey Danford the lone Englishman who lived in the Namosi Highlands amongst the cannibal hill tribes in the 1800s. Fought alongside the Namosi High chief, planned all attacks against enemies and advised the chief on his dealings with Europeans.
For the many years of service to the chief of Namosi he was given a piece of land called Raiwaqa along the banks of the Navua River, where he later settled. During his time in Raiwaqa he also led many foreigners on expeditions up the Navua River.
Today join William as he continues to follow his great great great grandfathers footsteps.
