This rice field is perhaps the only one that exists on earth. Lunch box will be served on the way. We will spend the night in Denge.


Accommodation: Waerebo Lodge or Guest House in Denge


After breakfast in the village Denge, we will begin our trekking to Wae Rebo Village, the oldest traditional village of Manggarai. The rain forest along the walk to Wae Rebo is one of the richest areas of Indonesia in biological diversity. The forest is simply like a huge garden of Eden. The walk through the forest with different vegetation is of great interest, from the families of orchids, palms, ferns, etc. The natural voice of birds singing different types of song will entertain you throughout the trip. The river of clear and fresh water on the way to the village is a good time to take a break.

In the village of Wae Rebo, the visitor can see the conical houses, one of which is a “drum house” with very unique architectures. It is the place for holding meetings, rituals and prayers on Sunday mornings. The drum house is a common building for a branch of the clan or clans, symbolizing the ideal unit of patrimonial descent. Finishing the tour, we return to Denge to rest.

Meals: Breakfast – Lunch – Dinner

Accommodation: Puri Sari Beach Hotel


Enjoy your breakfast, then at the appointed time we will transfer you to the port to board the boat that will take you to the Komodo National Park. We will go to see the Komodo dragons and for that we go first to Rinca Island. In addition to Komodo in their natural environment, we will be able to see Water buffalo, macaque monkeys, cockatoos, wild horses, etc. Enjoy the trekking around the park accompanied by a ranger.

Afterwards, we return to boat will have lunch. Then in the afternoon the boat is anchored next to some mangroves, to see how hundreds of bats take flight at sunset. You will have dinner and spend the night on a traditional wooden boat in the Rinca Sea.

Meals: Breakfast – Lunch – Dinner

Accommodation: Traditional Boat (Cabin No AC)


Today, we will sail to Loh Liang that is the ranger’s station on Komodo Island. During the 3 and a half hours of navigation, you will realize that the sea is like a great lake dotted with hundreds of tiny islands, most of them uninhabited, or with only a few fishermen, who moor in them to rest or spend the night. Once on the island, we have to enter the office of the rangers to register and pay the national park fee. There we will be assigned a ranger who will accompany us at all times while we are inside the island. 

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 the trekking. 

In addition to the Komodo dragons, we can see Timor Deer, wild pigs and various types of running hens as well as sulfur cockatoos, snakes, etc.

At the end of the trek, we head back to the port and continue the cruise. After a short while, we will reach Pantai Merah (Pink Beach) where we can do snorkeling in the middle of coral reefs full of life. Did you know that Indonesia is the most important center of marine biodiversity in the world? It is where the species of the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean come together with the endemic species of Indonesia. It makes Indonesia have the largest number of underwater species in the world. Well, you will be swimming in the middle of all that. 

Afterwards, we will navigate to another beautiful place, Manta Point where we will enjoy the huge “fish blankets” in our snorkel. Even sometimes we can see them from the boat during our trip. Lunch on board.

In the afternoon we go to the port of Labuan Bajo, and from there to the hotel, to rest from both sea and mountains.

Accommodation: Puri Sari Beach Hotel

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.

In West to Central part of the weather is delightfully warm and it’s a popular time for travellers to visit for holidays, whilst if you wish to travel from October to April, the Eastern part Indonesia, like Banda and Raja Ampat, would be the best option.

If you wish to have a relaxing journey in Indonesia with less crowds, the shoulder months of April to June and September to October are ideal and slightly more economic. If you must travel in ‘high season’ but want to avoid the crowd, worry not, there are numbered of unbeaten track in Indonesia ready to be explored.
