WHY THIS TOUR?
Wild adventures await in the Komodo National Park! As the home of the mighty Komodo dragon, this is your chance to spot the closest thing to a living dinosaur. These gigantic, scaly creatures grow to a length of three metres and can weigh up to 70 kgs, making them the largest living lizards in the world.
Aside from the Komodo dragon, the islands also boast breathtakingly beautiful landscapes with pristine beaches in many hues and colours. Off land, the surrounding translucent waters are home to one of the world’s richest marine environments where thousands of species of corals and tropical fish flourish. On this tour you will visit three of these enchanting islands: Rinca, Sebayur and Penga.
06:00 - 17:30
Wake early morning in preparation for an exciting day in search of the Komodo dragon. From the hotel, set off to the harbour and board a boat for Rinca Island. This island is one of the best places to see Komodo dragons in their natural habitat.
A local ranger will escort you on a two-hour walk in search of wild buffalo, deer, pigs, tropical birds and of course the intriguing Komodo dragon. The hike takes you across various types of terrain including steep exposed slopes with far-reaching views and sun-soaked savannahs studded with lontar palms. You will pass by dragons’ nests and reach a permanent waterhole in Waewaso, frequented by these magnificent beasts. All the while, keep your cameras ready for sightings of the large lizards and other animals.
After your dragon exploration, board the boat and continue to the islands of Sebayur and Penga. These sleepy, idyllic islands are surrounded by crystal clear waters ideal for swimming and snorkelling. You can choose whether to laze on the powder white beaches, take a dip in the warm ocean, or don a snorkel and mask to discover the colourful underwater world.
In the afternoon, you will board the boat for the last time for the cruise back to Labuan Bajo, followed by the transfer to the hotel. A simple lunch is included.
