An Introduction To Komodo National Park

If you are a fan of wildlife then there is a strong possibility that you will like Komodo National Park, which was recognised by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites in 1991.




Located between Sumbawa and Flores, the park is home to world’s largest and also one of the oldest living lizards – the Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis). They can only be found in the Komodo National Park as well as on the islands of Rinca, Nusa Kode, and Gili Motang. However, it is a mystery why these lizards are only found in the above-mentioned places.




I was lucky to witness not just one but four Komodos as my guide told me that it was not easy to spot them every day. While the male one was reticent, the female dragon was quite aggressive.






The guide told me that the park is home to around 2,000 Komodo dragons. Apart from dragons, you can find a variety of birds, tropical plants and wild orchids.





How to reach Komodo National Park: Hire a boat from Labuan Bajo harbour. It will take approximately two hours to reach there. Guides are also available there for your assistance. Just make sure you pay attention to their instructions. There are many tour operators in Labuan Bajo, who can arrange a trip for you.

Don’t worry about the food and accommodation, as you can find plenty of them for every kind of traveller in Labuan Bajo.

In between, you can check out my photo blog here.

    I love komodo dragons (and am slightly terrified too). We are deciding where to go in Indonesia and this was an option. Aside from sporting wildlife, did you find there to be much to do, or komodo island more of a day trip?

      Yes you can indulge in lot of water-sports activities. Let me tell you one thing you will find some great clean water there. You can also enjoy pink beach. For Komodo Island trip, you need just 4 hours after that you can enjoy pink beach. there are so much to do there. Everything will be arranged by local travel agency in Labuan Bajo.
