Indonesia – Komodo National Park

Set amidst the arid mountains of East Nusa Tenggara and plunging into pristine waters is a location so untouched and remote, it’s easy to see why the world’s largest lizard calls Komodo National Park home. This UNESCO World Heritage Site, situated in the centre of the Indonesian archipelago, is the perfect place to explore by boat no matter what kind of trip you are looking for. Relax and unwind or explore and discover – the choice is yours. A sailing trip around Komodo National Park from Labuan Bajo is bound to impress even the most well-travelled individual.

Where is Komodo National Park?

Komodo National Park is an equatorial group of islands located 744 kilometres (462 miles) east of Denpasar, Bali – just off the coast of East Nusa Tenggara. The park boasts similar characteristics to the Mediterranean regions, making it easy to see why the Komodo dragon has thrived here. The mountains and valleys are harsh terrain, often very dry, with intense humidity – a complete contrast to lush, tropical Bali.

The mountains are staggering, dramatic and seem to sink effortlessly into the azure waters that encircle them.
