Forest and plantation



4/30/2022: We arrived in Suva after our overnight flight and connection to find out that our rental car was not available. So, we took a taxi to the hotel convinced that we would be unable to visit the areas we wanted to see. Fortunately, this was not the case as Vilikesa had a van available to drive us to a couple of sites..

5/2/2022: An early morning visit to the Pipeline Road near the lodge before heading to the airport for our flight to Kadavu. The humidity had really soaked into the camera by this point which caused poor photos.

Next Visit (Viti Levu: 5/1/2022)
