Plan Your Taveuni Vacation

The "garden island of Fiji" is 110,000 acres of dense, virgin rain forest and high volcanic peaks. The island is rich in flora such as the red-and-white Tagimoucia flower, which only grows here and on a small part of Vanua Levu. Taveuni's fauna flourish in the absence of the mongoose, which was introduced to many Fiji islands in order to reduce the rat population and which subsequently decimated frog and lizard species. Bird-watchers are smitten with the red-breasted musk parrots, silktails, and rare orange-breasted doves among the many other species that thrive here.
