Komodo National Park, located between Sumbawa and Flores islands, is known for its 4 (among 26 in total) main islands: Komodo, Rinca, Kanawa and Padar. Climate is quite dry there and temperatures can reach 40¨C during the day between march and october. The famous varans or Komodo dragons live in this incredible setup. The Komodo archipelago numbers this endemic specie at 5700 individuals.
To get there, boats leave from Labuan Bajo, west of Flores. They are leaving for the entire day, 2 days / 1 night or 3 days / 2 nights, providing for all types of travelers. Be careful of swindlers who raise prices or whose boats lack in security.
Komodo, the island of Dragons
Created in 1990 to protect the dragons, Komodo National Park was also dedicated to the protection of other species. You can find there the orange-footed scrubfowl, endemic rats or the Jawa deer. The coral reef also numbers many species: whales, dolphins, octopuses, sea turtles or manta rays, visible during boat trips.
The spectacular landscape of Komodo National Park, its rugged plains, its spiny vegetation and its white sand beaches provide a high contrast with other lush forests found in the rest of Indonesia. With a mosaic of colors melting in extreme conditions, this park has an authentic feel to it and we can’t wait to have you discover it!
However, the discovery has do be done following certain rules. You will have to be supervised by a ranger, local guide, to be allowed to walk in Komodo or Rinca islands where dragons are found. It is forbidden to venture yourself on your own. Even if Komodo dragons are not really aggressive, they are sometimes difficult to see, especially when they are lying on the ground between leafs.
Besides dragons, the archipelago of Komodo and its natural park provide amazing landscapes. Unforgettable sunsets like the one or Padar Island which will fill you with never seen before memories as soon as the night is coming.
