The Fiji Visitors Bureau says a tourist adventure focusing on tribal living is set to start next month on Vanua Levu.

Bureau chief executive, Viliame Gavoka has confirmed the Fiji Islands Trade and Investment Bureau and his bureau had sanctioned the tribal living experience.

He told the Fiji Times it's in the Macuata area.

Mr Gavoka says essentially it will see people from the United Kingdom living with locals people as members of the tribe, and carrying out work on projects.

The project is the brainchild of an overseas adventure company Tribewanted Limited.
