Flores Island and other small islands in East Nusa Tenggara are most well known animal inhabitant and is probably the cockatoo but another species rapidly gaining infamy is the ancient Komodo Dragon, one of the world largest reptile. The Komodo Dragon is a throw back to the dinosaurs, growing to a length of three meters and weighing up to 150 kilos. They are quick and deadly so watch them feed from a safe distance. It is a grizzly site so be sure to bring a telephoto lens as you really do not want to near them. Even their Saliva is extremely toxic.

How to get to Komodo National Park
Komodo Island is a small island located between Flores island to the east and Sumbawa island to the west.

The tour to Komodo Natinal Park becomes very simple as 3 daily flights departing from and to Bali. If you are on short holiday in Bali and want to include Komodo Tour in your travel program, then we suggest to take the 2 days tour or 3 days Komodo Tour.

Komodo Island is around 4 hours by boat from Labuan Bajo and is within 2 hours from Rinca Island, one the islands in the Komodo National Park. Travel to Komodo Island and Rinca Island are available on daily departure from Labuan Bajo. The boats are usually offered on private chatered either for overnight tour or day trip.
