Safety information

Rangers always carry a long pole with a V-shaped tip, to make dragons keep their distance from us. They will give us a brief explanation of behavior in the park and what we can see. The dragons may sometimes make sudden moves so opening your eyes and keeping silent will always be the best advice.  Watch your back as there might be also one behind you or up on the trees. The Ranger will always be leading the group, showing us all the species that he sees during trekking. 

In addition to the Komodo dragons, we can see water buffalo, macaque monkeys, cockatoos, wild horses, etc. 

Lunch will be provided on board.

Sunset sky with flying foxes…

Denpasar is more convenient with direct flight available to Maumere. From Jakarta, the flight will have transit in Denpasar and use the same direct flight.

When is the best time of the year to do this tour?

Our favourite time for travel in Indonesia is between April to October, although Indonesia is a great year-round destination, offering memorable experiences for all kinds of adventures. July to August are the peak summer months.
