Getting There

Getting There


Guests arrange their own transport to Namosi Eco Retreat - just 2hours from Suva and 3.5hours from Nadi - choosing from daily public transport (bus and carrier), private tour and transport companies, car hire, or the Navunikabi village carrier or private vehicle. 

  • Self-drive: It is recommended that for guests wanting to self-drive, to have a vehicle with reasonable clearance off the ground such as an SUV, Subaru, Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson – there is no need for a four-wheel-drive (4WD) vehicle as the dirt roads regularly graded and kept in reasonable condition but there are many potholes and bumps not suitable to low vehicles such as Prius. There are many hire car companies in Fiji, for guests who do not have their own vehicle.

  • Public transport: There is public transport that travels daily to Navunikabi village including buses and Fiji “carriers” (small trucks converted to have seats in the back to transport people). Both bus and carrier public transport arrives from Suva to Namosi in the evening, returning early morning. 

  • Private transfers and tours: Guests without transport can arrange their own self-drive rental vehicles or privately driven vehicles. There are many private transfer companies such as Talanoa Treks, Pehicle and Micks Tours and tour companies in Fiji, for guests who want to be driven to Namosi. 

Please don’t hesitate to ask for assistance from Namosi Eco Retreat and ensure your transport is confirmed a week before your visit.
