This is a beautiful place where you can relax or be active. My husband arrived ill and Karin and Bobo were very sympathetic and looked after us so well. We simply relaxed and enjoyed all the lovely wildlife around us. Karin's cooking is amazing for vegetarians as well as meat eaters. We loved this place.

Words cannot express how special this place is. I don't even really want to tell you about it - you just need to go and discover it for yourself... As Bobo says, you have a lucky charm if you happen upon this magical spot in the rainforest. Hidden away, survivors of Winston, delicious food, rainforest treasures, a deserted sand island... More

While my husband and I only stayed two nights, we loved it. Karin and Bobo make the best hosts - warm and open, making you feel right at home. We visited just 4 weeks after Cyclone Winston, and while the damage was obvious, so too was the spirit to get things back in order. Karin's cooking is amazing - a... More

7 of us (parents plus 5 children aged 15,13,11,8 and 5) stayed here for 3 nights in April this year and we couldn't have had a better time.

Honestly one of the best holidays we've had. My girlfriend and I were looking for a real "getaway" holiday and Bobo's Farm was recommended to me by my sister. Bobo and Karin own the many acres of land you'll be adventuring through in Rukuruku and treat you like family the moment you set foot on Levuka. There are numerous activities... More

This was a special experience and i highly recommend it if you aren't into big resorts and want to see the real Fij. The food was beyond amazing, and it is excellent value. It is way off the beaten path - about 45 minutes drive from the boat jetty or Levuka. You can hear the river running, and are surrounded... More

Came here with my girlfriend looking for an authentic Fijian experience. We're both currently living in the Pacific so we were keen to spend as much time in the mountains/hill areas. The accommodation was perfectly-humble and clean, in a beautifully groomed garden. The dining area overlooks a beautiful little gorge. Highlight is of course Bobo and Karen - as mentioned... More
