Rinca and Komodo Islands

A fantastic 3-night/4-day journey from Flores to Rinca and Komodo Islands for an encounter with Komodo dragons  in the wild. We would be delighted to book this as part of a tailor-made itinerary to Indonesia or as an extension to your travels in South-East Asia.

Highlights: Labuan Bajo – Rinca Island – Komodo Island

Day 1

Labuan Bajo (Flores) - Rinca Island

In the morning, transfer to the harbour to board your private boat to set sail towards Rinca Island. The waters around Rinca are speckled with small islands ringed with beautiful coral reefs and an abundance of marine life which make for great snorkelling.

Rinca Island is smaller and less busy than Komodo but full of wildlife, poisonous snakes, and of course, the Komodo dragon. Hike across the island in the afternoon for an encounter with these wonderful ancient creatures, which grow to 10 ft (3m).

We return onboard to sail to the pink beach of Pantai Merah on Komodo Island, which has the most striking coral reefs. In the evening you might be able to spot the flying dogs that live in the mangrove trees.

Overnight aboard your private boat.

Day 2

Padar Island and Komodo

Sail to Padar Island, the third largest island in Komodo National Park, a great place for hiking and wonderful photography with views across three bays dotted with small islands.

In the afternoon stop at Komodo Island for a further option to hike across to see the dragons.

Overnight aboard your private boat.

Day 3

Labuan Bajo

A leisurely journey back to Labuan Bajo with plenty of stops along the way for swimming and snorkelling.

On arrival at the harbour you will be taken to your hotel.

Day 4

Depart Flores

You will have some time left to stroll around Labuan Bajo, before your departure transfer to the airport.
