Run by: The Great Projects
Reference number: Komodo Dragon Adventure Tour
This short but jam packed 4 day tour is the perfect addition to one of our Orangutan projects out in Borneo, and the chance to relax and take in the sights of the Komodo National Park may be just what you need after a busy few weeks volunteering!
You will spend a night travelling between the islands by boat, which is by far the best way to take in the sights and sounds of Indonesia.
During your time on this tour you will have the chance to witness incredible wildlife which is endemic to a small selection of islands in this region, including Water Buffalo, Macaque Monkeys and of course the Komodo Dragon.
You’ll be able to visit the Komodo Dragons feeding grounds, swim in a beautiful coral garden or simply relax on one of the golden, sandy beaches. The choice is all yours. The locations you may visit on the tour including; Batu Cermin cave, Rinca & Komodo Islands and Pantai Merah beach are all amazing experiences and things you will not forget for a long time to come!
The Komodo Dragon is an animal which many people would immediately recognise but few know much about. This tour is the perfect chance to see and learn more about one of the world’s most mysterious animals first hand. You’ll visit various islands which the Komodo Dragons call home and also have the chance to relax, swimming and snorkeling in the beautiful clear seas around the islands.
