Komodo National Park – a UNESCO World Heritage site and quite simply a stunning place to visit for an unforgettable adventure.

Komodo National Park lies in the Wallacea Region of Indonesia, identified by WWF and Conservation International as a global conservation priority area, and is located in the center of the Indonesian archipelago, between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores.
Komodo National Park includes three major islands: Komodo, Rinca and Padar, as well as numerous smaller islands creating a total surface area (marine and land) of more than 1,800 km2. As well as being home to the Komodo Dragon, also known as the Komodo Monitor, or Ora (to Indonesians), the park provides refuge for many other notable terrestrial species. Moreover, the Park includes one of the richest marine environments.

This park is located in the Eastern part of Indonesia and had been protected from development by the remote location. Now, as tourism develops, it is the work of the park rangers and the government to control the development of the park over the coming years. PArt of the protection comes in the form of rigid rules and regulations that prevent much potential damage.

Flora & Fauna:
The number of terrestrial animal species found in the Park is not high, but the area is important from a conservation perspective as some species are endemic. Many of the mammals are Asiatic in origin. Several of the reptiles and birds are Australian in origin. These include the orange-footed scrubfowl, the lesser sulpher-crested cockatoo and the nosy friarbird.
The most famous of Komodo National Park’s animals is the Komodo Dragon (Varanus komodoensis). It is the world’s largest living lizard and can reach 3 metres or more in length and weigh over 70kg.
Other animals include the Timor deer, the main prey of the Komodo dragon, wild horses (kuda liar), water buffalo, wild boar (babi liar), long-tailed macaques, palm civets, the endemic Rinca rat (tikus besar Rinca), and fruit bats.
Also beware of the snakes inhabiting the island, including the cobra and Russel’s pit viper, both of which are extremely dangerous.
As far as the marine fauna is concerned, Komodo National Park includes one of the world’s richest marine environments. It consists of over 260 species of reef building coral, 70 different species of sponges, crustaceans, cartilaginous (incl. manta ray and sharks) and over a 1,000 different species of bony fishes (over 1,000 species), as well as marine reptiles (incl. sea turtles), and marine mammals (dolphins, whales, and dugongs).

Komodo dragons are the largest species of lizard on Earth. Due to an unusual intersection of weather and geology – they grew until this enormous size. Found nowhere else – the dragons can easily take down animals many times their size and they often feed on water buffalo and goats. They are so ravenous that they will eat the young of their species – forcing the young dragons to live in trees the first several years of their life! While they are dangerous and have attacked humans – with care and caution they can be seen on both Komodo and Rinca Islands.

Attractions

Experience Komodo National Park - a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the most stunning places on earth. Located on the equator but very arid and hilly - reminding one of the savannah rather than Indonesia. The main reasons to travel to Komodo National Park are the Komodo Dragons, the superb beaches and the unspoilt corals. Keep in mind that there are also wild pigs, monkeys and horses on Pulau Rinca, one of the two largest islands in the park. If you return by sea at night, you can also see legions of flying foxes (fruit bats whose wing span may exceed 4 feet) flying in the twilight sky. At night on the Flores Sea, you also have a magnificent view of the stars.

Things to do:

Depending on the time you have available, one or more guided tours on the islands of Rinca and Komodo itself. Please note that it is neither permitted nor advisable to do any tours without local guides, as the Komodo Dragons are dangerous when they attack.


This area is inhabited by more than a thousand different fish species, making it one of the world’s richest marine habitats. You may also swim in the Flores Sea on your incoming or outgoing boat trip to one of the islands. Beware of sharp corals on the sea floor near some of the small islands.

This dive area is many divers favorite place in Indonesia and they come back nearly every year to Komodo liveaboard trips – but their secret is slowly getting out! In one place there is almost everything your heart wishes for. Large sharks, manta rays and tunas to colorful nudibranchs, special shrimps, frogfishes and also just the incredible colorful reefs.
