Zip Fiji’s tour of the ancient Oho Caves at Tau Village in Sigatoka and swinging on zip lines through a canyon and dense forest is where it happens.

Owners of the tourist attraction, are now making it affordable for locals to venture to the caves and try the three kilometres zip line set up.

Managing director Daniel Metcalf said the company never closed its doors, even after the borders closed around the world and tourists stopped coming.

“We have always been open even though we have had not many locals coming through,” Mr Metcalf said.
