With its desert savannah landscape, azure seas and verdant bushes, Komodo is an island of contrasts. The islands turn from verdant green to rugged and dry during summer, contrasting against the blue of the seas. The sea around Komodo National Park is famous for its species-rich tropical underwater environments, with more than 1,000 species of fish and 260 types of coral.

Komodo National Park

Encounter antediluvian creatures unchanged since prehistoric times – Komodo is the only place the infamous Komodo dragon can still be found, the largest land-dwelling reptile in the world – the largest found was 3.13 meters long and weighted 166 kg. Their footprints are often seen along pink sandy beaches. Follow expert rangers to view these mighty monitor lizards in their natural habitat, the Komodo National Park, a World Heritage Site spanning the islands of Rinca and Komodo.

Luxury Yacht

Embark on an adventure to the islands and waters in and around the Komodo National Park on-board a luxury yacht.
