KOMODO ISLAND – INFORMATION
Ever wondered if Jurassic Park really exists? Well, in reality it does, and Steven Spielberg has nothing to do with it. Far in eastern Indonesia, between the plateaus of Sumbawa and Flores, two small islands are inhabited by the last living link to dinosaurs on Earth. Famously referred to as “Komodo Dragons”, they are in fact the world’s largest species of monitor lizard. An endemic species not seen anywhere else in the world, these lizards live up to their nasty stereotype with a deadly weapon: poisonous saliva that contains seventeen different kinds of dangerous bacteria. One bite is enough to kill a water buffalo, a surly way to go indeed.
The name Komodo also refers to the whole archipelago known as the National Park of Komodo. Ranging from 1733 square km with 29 islands, geographically it’s mostly marine reserve with one of the best diving areas globally.
KOMODO ISLAND – BEST ATTRACTIONS
Board a private yacht and set sail for a few days into Komodo National Park while enjoying long diving or a snorkeling safari. This is highly recommended and definitely the best way to see Komodo.
Grab your camera and hunt down deadly dragons in Komodo or Rimca Island…on film. We make sure that the local ranger will have you covered, just keep your distance and you should be all right. We arrange daily trips from Flores so including flights from Bali it won’t take more than 2 days travel time.
This beach is literally a pink beach, covered with sand mixed with red coral. In the right daylight it gives beautiful pink reflections that can be observed on the pictures.
Trekking time! Climb the peak of one of main islands of Komodo National Park and marvel at stunning panorama.
Observe thousands of fruit bats leaving the island during sunset time.
