Best of Flores & Komodo
SAVE UP TO 15% on this tour

Lets get it out of the way first: Theres no place like this place, anyplace. Komodo is obviously well-known for its dragons (gigantic lizards, really, but whos nit-picking?), but theres so much more to the island plus nearby Flores and Rinca than just massive fauna. Youll spend much of this nine-day trip on Flores, soaking in the beautiful scenery (including Mt Kelimutu, a volcanic crater full of vibrantly coloured water) and traditional ways of life amongst the local people. On a boat trip to Komodo and Rinca, look out for Komodo dragons and spot even more of the native wildlife. Ready to get to know the wild side of Indonesia?
