Arguably, everyone should note down Komodo Island on their sprawled, long list of 100 amazing places in the world. One undeniable fact quips that the enchanting yet barren land is simply one-in-a-million treasure as no living lizards in all continents can ever bully, in terms of size, the island’s massive Komodo Dragons. Diving expertise has also reckoned the intact underwater environ that luxuriously unfurls charming red corrals and dancing sea urchins glowing in iridescent blue orange nuance. Not to mention, the pink-tinted beaches secure a perfect final touch which supposedly impels melancholic reminiscences over Komodo Island's sublimity.
Shambling and lazy gait does not render how Komodo Dragons might react when a prey is close at hand. It is not that easy to imagine that these monitor lizards, alias Varanus Komodoensies, may sprint as fast as dashing dogs despite the adult ones may measure up to 3.13 meters (or 10 feet and 2 inches) and weigh for 165.9 kilograms (or 365 pounds). Their gruesome killing technique relies heavily on enormous jaws, ripping five claws of each forelimb, and bacterial contagious drooling. In short, one bite means one-way ticket to heaven for sure.
Day 01 Bali - Labuan Bajo - Rinca
A sleek, convenient car awaits for your coming out from the Bali hotel door in the early morning. After a brisk slide on the road to the International Ngurah Rai Airport, you fly directly to Labuan Bajo Airport in West Flores Island. There our faithful staffs welcome your arrival and, shortly afterwards, usher you to Bajo Harbour for a couple-hour crossing to Rinca Island. Delicious lunch has been prepared to relieve your mind before a rendezvous with Komodo Dragons.
The exploration of the island begins with few strides uphill to grasp panoramic delights. Standing on the peak of the hill allows you to witness abundance of monitor lizards basking in groups at a sandy convergence and, on the other side, sparkling blue ocean spurring onto the coastal rim. Neighboring Komodo Island, of which close proximity to Rinca enables the giant lizards to permeate, also appears beyond the hill. Later, a close encounter to Komodo Dragons escorted by an expert local guide sums up the schedule for the day. Dinner and accommodation afterwards are catered on-board.
Day 02 Rinca - Komodo - Pink Beach - Labuan Bajo
The sunrise breach awakens you from the undisturbed sleep on-board. Before cruising to the neighboring isle, our ship crews present a scrumptious breakfast beginning. Dotted tropical thickets greet your drenching closer onto Komodo Island's pink beach. Another trekking, however, precedes your second date with the massive beasts in their homeland.
Komodo National Park is the prioritized focal point of the island. Beside the entrance area, scattered deer crisscross freely since no Komodo dragons are around. One stoic local ranger who will lead your detour grabs a long, forked stick as a protection against feisty lizards that might assault. You will also be warned to keep silence so that the lizards would not feel bothered with guest intrusion. Once in a while, young Komodo Dragons lurking on trees may pop up to eye on whoever is new on the island. Their hiding above the ground keeps them safe from the cannibalistic elders, even from their own parents.
Next stop after lunch on-board is a return to the pink beaches to savor a mesmerizing beauty. Often referred to be a spectacular snorkeling site, these beaches have drawn most guests to at least take a plunge in the cold water in breezy afternoons.
At the end of the day, you will venture back to Labuan Bajo and spend the evening and splendid rest at a commendable hotel.
Day 03 Labuan Bajo - Denpasar
The final day begins with the hotel sumptuous breakfast and sightseeing to the old stone fossil at Mirror Cave. There is also a chance to drop by at the local market where authentic natural bounty flourishes for cheap price. If everything is set, you will embark on a domestic flight back to Denpasar, Bali. Our staff shall let you slouch comfortably in car on the way to your booked hotel off the airport. With sincere smile and courtesy, we bid goodbye and hope for another meeting soon in the future if you ever inquire for more inspiration.
