Discover the best of Flores! This 4-day Komodo park tour takes you to Komodo Island to see the Komodo dragons. You will stay two nights on board our boat and one night in a hotel. Check out the different options for this trip and see which one suits you best.
Day 1: Labuhan Bajo – Rinca Island
Arrival at Komodo Airport in Labuan Bajo, West Flores, where your tour guide meets you and transfers you to the pier of Labuan Bajo. You have lunch on board during the 2 ½-hour sailing trip to Rinca Island. At Rinca, you hike through the typical dry forest to explore the natural habitat of the Komodo dragons. You will not only see the dragons, but also many other wild animals like deer, buffaloes, long-tailed macaques, wild pigs and numerous birds. A local ranger leads you through this unique environment and explains you everything about its fauna and flora.
After this hike, you board the vessel again to sail to Kambing Island for some snorkeling. In the late afternoon, you sail to Lasa Island nearby Komodo Island for dinner and overnight stay on the boat.
Day 2: Komodo – Pink Beach – Manta Point
After breakfast on board, you sail directly to Loh Liang – the ranger station on Komodo Island. You pass many small islands during the 2 ½-hour trip towards the pier of Komodo Island. After registration, you start a basic trek to see the Komodo dragons and other wild animals like Timor deer, wild pigs, wild chickens and many species of tropical birds. A local ranger guides you during this hike. Don’t forget to look up, as you might spot Komodo dragons up in the trees.
You return to the boat and sail to Pink Beach for some snorkeling, swimming and relaxing. The Pink Beach coral reef is one of best spots for snorkeling and diving, as the reef is untouched and spectacular, with many brightly colored fish living in and around the reef.
Afterwards, you sail to Manta Point to see the huge mantas while snorkeling. Sometimes you can even see them from the boat. Please take into account that we can never guarantee you will spot any manta rays, as the waves and the currents can be strong and unpredictable. Lunch is served on board.
Late in the afternoon, you sail to Kalong Island. Here, you can see thousands of flying foxes when they fly out from the mangrove trees between 6 pm and 7 pm. This fabulous event can only be witnessed from a boat as the island is inhabited and hard to enter.
Day 3: Kalong Island – Bidadari – Labuahan Bajo
After breakfast on the boat, you leave for Bidadari (Angel Island) for snorkeling, relaxing and sunbathing on a white sandy beach.
Afterwards, you continue to Labuahan Bajo, where you check-in at the hotel.

Eindelijk, we zijn erin geslaagd om Komodo te bezoeken, en het was het dubbel en dik waard, echt een ervaring die we niet snel zullen vergeten. We hadden geluk, want 1) we hebben komodo dragons gezien en 2) ze lagen niet gewoon ergens passief te liggen, maar waren allemaal actief en 'op pad'.
Ook Pink Beach, Manta Point en de grot zijn prachtig.
Tijdens de volledige vier dagen werden we begeleid door ervaren en vriendelijke lokale gidsen, en ook het eten en de (boot)accommodatie waren in orde.

If you'd ask me the highlight of this trip, I wouldn't be able to choose one, as there's just so many highlights: the manta rays, the komodo dragons, the flying foxes, the swimming and snorkeling... and many others! If you're into nature, this really is the perfect trip for you. Flores is GREAT, you'll have the time of your life!
