This 2-day tour will take you to Rinca island where you get to see the world’s largest lizards - the Komodo Dragon - amazing creatures that have been living here on the island for centuries, protected by the local people. This komodo adventure starts with a pick-up at your hotel or the airport in Labuan Bajo (Flores) by our English-speaking guide. Your personal guide will take you directly to the harbour where you will hop into the boat that will sail you across the ocean to your first destination: Rinca Island.
On Rinca Island, you can spot the komodo dragons and other wildlife in their natural habitat as you go trekking with an experienced local guide. The trek takes approximately 2 hours (unless you choose a shorter or longer trek - depending on your booking). Get your camera ready because you will be experiencing close-encounters (though never too close!) to the komodo dragons, buffalos, wild pigs, monkeys, deer and birds. The nature is also stunning - prepare for your inner adventurer to come out! Surely, your belly will be rumbling after the hike but you’re in luck, a scrumptious lunch will be served before continuing your travels onwards to Kalong Fox Island.
Hop on the boat once again and you will set course to Kalong Island, also known as ‘Fox Island’, surrounded by mangrove forests and home to thousands of fruit bats. You will have plenty of time to explore the beaches, relax and go snorkelling before dinner is served. During sunset time you will witness a true spectacle of nature when these thousands of Kalong bats fly over the mangrove forests towards Flores Island to find food. Afterwards, you can gaze at the luminous starry night sky and sleep on the boat to the sound of the sea only to wake up at the dusk of dawn when the bats are flying over once again. What a magical experience!
The second day of the tour will bring you Padar Island straight after breakfast. Here, you will go for another trek through stunning nature. Afterwards, it is time to go snorkelling at the gorgeous Pink Beach - one of the seven pink beaches in the world. It is also here, at this stunning pink sand beach that you will enjoy a hearty lunch.
On the way back to Labuan Bajo, you will make yet another spot at Manta Point for some more snorkelling. This time, you may spot the elusive manta rays swimming with you beneath the surface of the sea. It is an experience that is indescribable - you won’t know what hit you! In Labuan Bajo, you will be picked up by your personal driver who will drive you back to your hotel or to the airport, according to your request.
