Komodo, the Dragons of Flores

Island: Flores

Duration: 4 days


Day 1 : Bali - Labuan Bajo, Flores - Rinca Island
Breakfast. Transfer to the airport for our domestic flight to the western tip of Flores. Upon arrival in Labuan Bajo we will take local transport to the fishing harbor where our speedboat is waiting for us. An exciting trip of 1 and a half hour through one of the most beautiful seascapes in the world brings us to the Komodo National Park and the small island of Rinca. Here we first take our picnic lunch at the cafeteria of the rangers before starting our trek on the island looking for the famous Komodo dragons. Now one of the 7 new wonders of the world this National Park is the only habitat of the giant lizards. Predators by nature they hunt for the wild life on the island such as wild pig, deer or buffalo. An encounter with these ‘dinosaurs’ is not easy to forget. In the afternoon our speedboat brings us back to the harbor. Overnight.
