What You Can Expect

3-Day Komodo National Park Tour: Komodo Island and Rinca Island Trek

3-Day Komodo Adventure: Komodo National Park, Safari Trek and Rinca Trails

Get up close and personal with the incredible Komodo dragons and stunning scenery of Komodo National Park during this 3-day private tour. This nature lover's excursion offers an incredible chance to step back in time and imagine a world untouched by humans, all within the confines of a gorgeous UNESCO World Heritage-listed national park. Best of all, you'll explore this beautiful national park from the comfort of your own private air-conditioned boat, including all transport once you've arrived at Komodo Airport.

Start your tour with a pickup at Komodo airport, continuing first to the harbor where you'll travel by boat to nearby Rinca Island. Explore the island's beautiful natural scenery with a ranger as you scout for its diverse wildlife, including Timor deer, water buffalo, long-tail macaques and of course, the infamous Komodo dragon. Then cruise that afternoon to Komodo Island where you'll spend the night aboard your private boat. Spend the second day on Komodo Island observing its many Komodo dragons and its wealth of bird life, returning to the boat in the afternoon for snorkeling at the gorgeously remote Pink Beach. Finish your excursion on the third day in the area around Labuan Bajo, stopping for a tour of Batu Cermin Cave and the area's traditional market for heading with your guide back to Komodo airport. Full itinerary details are outlined below.

Itinerary

Day 1: Labuan Bajo – Rinca Island – Komodo Island (L, D)
Upon arrival at Komodo Airport, you will be met by your private guide and transferred to the harbor to board a boat to Rinca Island—a 2-hour boat ride.

Begin your private tour with a ranger-led trek along the Rinca Trail. Walk through typical dry forest on Rinca Island, located in UNESCO World Heritage-listed Komodo National Park. Here, mixed vegetation provides habitat for various animals, such as Timor deer, wild water buffalo, pig, wild boar and long-tail macaque, which feed on various leaves, fruit, flowers, roots and grasses found in the national park.

Learn about the park’s top predator, the infamous Komodo dragon, whose menu includes all of the animals in the area! Komodo National Park is the only region where the world’s largest monitor lizard is found. These giants can grow to a maximum length of 10 feet (3 meters) and weigh up to 330 pounds (150 kilograms). Never fear—you’ll be safe at all times with your guide!

Eat lunch aboard the boat before your afternoon cruise to Komodo Island. In the evening, enjoy your onboard dinner and a leisurely evening in spectacular natural surroundings.

Overnight: Air-conditioned cabin aboard your private boat in Komodo National Park

Day 2: Komodo Island – Labuan Bajo (B, L, D)
After breakfast on board, start your private morning safari on Komodo Island with a half-hour ranger-led walk to Banunggulung, a distance of approximately 1 mile (2 km). Here, your guide will point out Komodo dragons in their natural habitat. You’ll see where the giant creatures sunbathe or observe how they inspect burrows to lay their eggs—as many as 20 at a time.

Komodo Island is also home to other wildlife and a great variety of amazing birds, such as sulphur-crested cockatoos, megapodes (chicken-like birds with small heads and large feet) and collared kingfishers sporting bright blue feathers. After taking in these one-of-a-kind natural attractions, cruise back to Labuan Bajo.

Along the way, enjoy lunch on board the boat. You’ll have the opportunity to swim and snorkel at Pink Beach (Pantai Merah) in the afternoon. Savor the panoramic view of the turquoise sea against a backdrop of blue skies, rolling hills and rocky cliffs as you stroll along the soft sand, which is actually pink. From this remote beach on an uninhabited island, dip into the calm, clear waters and spot an amazing array of marine life amid the colorful coral.

In the evening, enjoy your onboard dinner and relax.

Day 3: Labuan Bajo – Denpasar (B)
Enjoy your onboard breakfast before disembarking at Labuan Bajo. If time permits, you’ll take a short sightseeing tour of Batu Cermin Cave—translated into Indonesian as Mirror Rock—which actually belongs to a series of caves. Your guide will point out how the impressive limestone outcrop got its name. (Hint: Watch the sunlight reflect off the rock, creating a spectacular visual effect on the cave walls!) Keep an eye out for long-tailed monkeys, and take in the panoramic view of the mainland and islands near Labuan Bajo.

En route to Komodo Airport, view the traditional market in Labuan Bajo, boasting a wealth of local goods such as fruit, seafood and meat. Your guide will transfer you to the airport in time for your onward flight. (Flight is at own expense unless round-trip air transfer upgrade is selected for the return to Denpasar. See details below.)
