KOmodo tour package Therefore, there have been two incidents, but they are very isolated cases. There is nothing to worry about, as long as you follow the instructions in the park. Do not leave the group, do not get too close unless your guide gives you permission, and do not touch or provoke the dragons.There are two situations in particular, in which the park alerts you should not go, or at least warn to be more careful: have an open wound or have the rule (although the amount of blood lost in the rule is negligible) . The explanation is that the dragons can smell the blood from afar and can incite them to attack thought that it is of a prey. If one of the two situations affects you, it is best to ask before.In our case, Juan, a friend who came with us on the boat, had a leg injury a few days before (due to a motorcycle crash in Bali), and he was recommended (and helped) to bandage it well before enter the park.Our visit to the parkOur visit to the park was included in the excursion we hired by boat to go from Flores to Lombok (which we recommend because we loved it).We left early from the port of Labuan Bajo, and made three stops in the national park: first in Rinca, then in Pink Beach and finally in Komodo. In both islands (Rinca and Komodo) you will see the Komodo dragons, doing a trekking.Komodo Dragons in RincaOur boat arrived at Rinca about 11 in the morning, where they left us and we followed a path that took us to the entrance of the park. During the way we saw a lot of monkeys, one of which was just where the boat left us, and had some "danger" because he would go for our backpacks looking for food even if it cost someone a bite. Fortunately, it was not like that.Entrance Komodo National Park in RincaEntering the Komodo National Park in RincaRinca MonkeysA lot of monkeys that we saw at the entrance to the park, in RincaAfter a few minutes walking we arrived at the entrance of the park, where we have to pay the ticket that gives us access to the park throughout the day (it is valid for both Rinca and Komodo, so you pay only once if you see both islands in The same day). We have to pay also the guide, whose price is fixed and divided among the whole group.Then the guide gathers us to talk, shows us his famous ancestral stick, and explains the rules we have to follow during the tour. We chose to do the trekking of average duration, since we read that the landscape is not so spectacular and the dragons see them in the same way in the three types of tour. The price is the same in any case.After the explanation we begin to walk, and right there, between the booths of the entrance, we see our first komodo dragon. He was walking and stopped near one of the booths. After the thrill of seeing so many Komodo dragons, we started asking why they are all so unemployed, if they are really lethargic (as the guides told us) or if they are drugged (they were all quite close to the booths of the entrance). We do not know, I hope it is not so and in fact later in Komodo we would get to see a much more active one :) Keep reading ...We continue our visit to Rinca along the path. The heat was scorching for the great day I was doing and for the lack of shadows.Following the path of the Trekking by Rinca, in full sunFollowing the path of the Trekking by Rinca, in full sunWe continue our journey, for 15 or 20 more minutes, until we get back to the ticket booths, ending our visit. There is a kind of small bar where you can buy water and beer among other things, so with such thirst, it was a perfect time to take some Bintang (local beers).Just as we were enjoying the beer and resting, next to the booth, one of the Komodo dragons that was walking nearby decides to take a walk towards us, before the surprise and photo session of the people I remember when I said that I was going to the islands of Nusa Tenggara, I saw faces of surprise around me. Naturally, although the name sounds like islands of the Pacific, the place is not known. They are islands located in the archipelago of Indonesia, between Bali and Australia, that surely sound more to you. Indeed, the Nusa Tenggara or islands of the southeast, are the islands of Sumba, Timor, Flores, Komodo, Sumbawa and Lombok, among other minors. Komodo tour package from Nusa tenggara Timur is beautifull island I was aware that in a month I would not have time to meet them all and, besides, I wanted to take this trip very calmly, that is, if I found a place that I liked, I would stay; if a family invited me, I could not say no; if he came to a virgin beach, he would remain there; If there was a funeral, he would attend. Therefore, I wanted to make a leisurely trip, which was done on the fly, and so I started it. It was my third trip to Indonesia. Maybe you will think: «Again, Indonesia?». Yes, because there are fewer and fewer countries that remain intact, except the islands of the Pacific. For travel, I choose areas that I do not yet know from countries where I may have already been, that are fleeing from mass tourism and itineraries of travel agencies. Think that Indonesia is a huge country, with 13,700 islands and an ethnic and cultural variety of the richest in Asia. Within Indonesia itself you can not compare Irian Jaya with Java, Bali with Lombok, Sumba with Timor, the Moluccas with Sumatra. It has many travel facilities, people are open and hospitable, and life is very cheap, therefore, traveling is also very cheap. The islands of Nusa Tenggara have a wide transport network that allowed me to move from island to island, taking small airplanes with 20 seats. But I had to organize very well, since there were no daily flights to the islands. In contrast, land transport was based on buses and buses. In order not to have to depend on always non-existent schedules, I chose the private taxi, which consisted of going "package" on a motorcycle. Since work is scarce, many young people save to buy a motorcycle, use it as public transport, so they can pay for it and earn some money. From the base town where he lived, with a motorcyclist I agreed on the itinerary that we would do every day. It was a good way to get to know the best places on the island. there:Komodo dragon movingA Komodo dragon approaching the park booth where they sell drinksAfter a while we come to seek to return to the ship and continue our adventure through the National Park.Monkey in Rinca (Komodo)A monkey thief who came to see if he could steal some food from our backpacksBack to the boat that would take us from Flores to LombokReturn to our boat to eat, go to Pink Beach to Snorkel and then to Komodo.

Marta and Jessi came loaded with maintenance :)Immediately afterwards they tell us that due to the time we no longer have time to do the hiking route, but that we can go with the guides in the areas near the entrance since they had sighted a pair of dragons over there.There we went, and indeed, there was a dragon walking around on the beach! The guides asked us to stay a little behind and we followed him for a while:Komodo Dragon beachA Komodo dragon walking along the beach under our watchful eye and the vigilance of our guideThe dragon went to a slightly more interior area, and according to the guide was going to rest.

This group of islands is very close to the island of Flores, the main point of departure if you want to visit the park.The islands that are usually visited to see the Komodo dragons are Rinca and Komodo, going by boat from Labuan Bajo (in Flores) or from Lombok."/>Skip to content
