Waisali Rainforest Reserve

  • Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Published 03/29/2016

Fodor's Review

One of Fiji's most diverse rain forests, this 300-acre reserve is rich in spectacular mountaintop vistas, bird species, and exquisite trees, flowers, and plants, including those used in traditional medicines. Waisali contains a population of the endangered Fiji ground frog (Platymantis vitianus), which was once thought to have become extinct thanks to sugarcane development during the colonial period. Happily, scientists have found them in Waisali along with other populations considered important. Most of the forest in the reserve is intact and undisturbed, although a short walking trail from the entrance culminates in a pretty waterfall.
