kokonat wokbaot tours 

In Bislama, ‘kokonat’ refers to the coconut – an important and highly valued staple of Ni-Vanuatu life, and ‘wokbaot’ means to walk or explore. Together, the name ‘Kokonat Wokbaot’ loosely translates to ‘the tree of life that walks’. Owned by Santo local Rita, Kokonat Wokbaot is committed to showing you the true beauty of Santo.

It is the aim of Kokonat Wokbaot tours to give visitors an experience they won’t forget and, with their team of passionate local drivers and tour guides, help you discover the true Vanuatu. Kokonat Wokbaot sees travel as a tool to share kastom (culture) and facilitate inter-cultural appreciation, and offers a range of tours put together so you can have a fun, affordable and uniquely Santo experience. Kokonat Wokbaot treats their guests like part of the family and all tours end with a farewell lunch and an offer to keep in touch via the Kokonat Wokbaot Facebook page.

Kokonat Wokbaot directly supports the local community with a portion of your tour profit being used to purchase essential stationary supplies for pre-school children in several villages around Santo. As with all our local tourism operators, choosing to support Ni-Vanuatu owned businesses helps strengthen the local economy and gives the community an opportunity to share their unique kastom with you.
