If you are looking for a wild adventure, then Kila Eco Adventure Park (KEAP) is for you.

Located off Namosi Road, approximately 22km from Suva (travelling on Queens Road) this wild and fun park is appropriate for all ages and is a major tourist attraction.

The park sits on 120 acres of freehold land makes for a memorable, exciting “wild” eco-park is a heart-pumping, adrenaline-rush attraction.

KEAP is open seven days a week with half day and full day tours available.

With an intensely long zipline and giant swing, KEAP provides a unique experience as well as fantastic fun for all ages.

Before visitors start their activity, there are safety brieffings given to make Kila ex­perience fun, safe and action packed.

Kila Park also offers wildlife and beauti­ful scenery with freshwater pool, waterfalls and traditional built Bures.

Pleass Global Ltd marketing director Cate Pleass said: “We have many different groups of guests that are organisations for team building and team upskilling.

“Conference groups seeking to enhance communication and planning in their teams, services – the military, National Fire Author­ity, Police and other services attend for core strength training and team training.

“Sporting teams for pre-event training and cores strength training – Fiji Sevens, Fiji Hockey, Singapore Netball.

“We have tourists coming from all over the world, our highly valued Fiji local tour­ists, our tourists from hotels and of course many tourists from the booming cruise ship trade.”

Can you tell us a bit about the feedback of successful team building stories?

Many organisations inform us that after their sessions, Kila provides their staff with the opportunity to see their colleagues in a challenging environment and new respect for each other.

This is gained through observing their colleagues outside the workplace in a at­mosphere of combined effort and at times demanding physical activity.

Often we see new leaders emerge in the training environment and in cases where there has been some discord in the team theses issues disappear in an environ­ment where the team members have to rely

heavily on each other to complete physical tasks.

We had an organisation recently visit and one of the team stated “Monday will be a different day in the office” this was very pleasing to hear.

Kila Eco Adventure Park team skill building is designed to teach teams to learn through chal­lenging activity and it works.

 

What are some of your future plans for the park?

Pleass Global has extensive plans for develop­ment of an Eco Visitor Centre to be constructed providing a theatre, learning environments and enhancement of current facilities.

There are also plans to further develop our very popular commando course which is used extensively. We are currently building a sports field so that teams visiting can participate in competitive sport at the park.

We shall also be extending our elements in the high and low rope challenges areas.

How many activities are available KEAP?
