SEVEN NIGHTS CRUISE, KOMODO TO BALI

Komodo National Park is a place of truly diverse natural beauty and incredible wildlife. Offering signaturepink-sand beach and some of the world’s best diving. It is a destination that will not disappoint. 

Dolphins are a common sight in the seas between Komodo and Flores and the area is also on a Whale migration route. The reefs offer good snorkelling and some of the best diving in Indonesia, especially with Manta Rays. Buffalo, Deer, Wild Pigs and Birdlife are all plentiful on land but the most remarkable attraction is its endangered monitor lizards, Varanus Komodoensis.

Teeming with sea life, Komodo National Park’s plentiful coral reefs are considered to be some of the best in all of Indonesia. Dolphins and mantra rays are a common sight and the area is also on a whale migration route. The grassy sloped islands that make up the park offer visitors gentle trekking trails and beautiful beaches to relax on, as well as the opportunity to see the famous Komodo dragons, the largest living lizards on the planet.

The Komodo Island monitors, known also as ‘Komodo Dragons’ or ‘ora’ are the largest living lizards on Earth and found only on Komodo, Rinca, and Western Flores islands. An average adult can measure up to 3 meters long and weigh 136 kilograms but despite its size can move quickly on the ground and is an agile swimmer and climber. These lizards have a dark gray, stocky body and stout, powerful legs with sharply clawed feet. Their heads are large and their long, forked tongues are used to sense the air following the scent of prey which consists of wild pigs, deer, water buffalo, goats, birds, and other monitors.
