Join wildlife photographer Nick Garbutt in Indonesia to find and capture images of Komodo dragons, crested black macaques and spectral tarsiers, amongst other fantastic wildlife.
We start this unique tour on the island of Sulawesi whose dramatic and varied landscapes - rugged mountains, virgin rainforest, highland lakes, idyllic beaches and rich coral reefs – are home to an amazing variety of flora and fauna, much of which is endemic. Mammals such as crested black macaque, Sulawesi bear cuscus, spectral tarsier and babirusa are found nowhere else. In addition, around 90 bird species are endemic too, as are a high percentage of the islands' reptiles and amphibians. We base ourselves at Tangkoko National Park at the far northeastern point of Sulawesi, which should provide excellent photographic opportunities, especially for the island's primate species.
After spending five nights on Sulawesi, we continue to Flores where we board a traditional Indonesian vessel and sail to Komodo National Park. This wonderful archipelago consists of three large islands, nameley Komodo, Padar and Rinca, as well as 26 smaller ones. By exclusively chartering our boat, we are able to spend four nights at these islands, which is much longer than the vast majority of visitors, providing ample time to photograph the extraordinary Komodo dragons that live on its shores.
