Arriving ashore, travel on foot to Komodo National Park for a walking tour in search of a fierce and rare species of reptile, the Komodo dragon.

Accompanied by park rangers and an English-speaking guide you will walk about one mile to the fenced area near Banunggulung to look for the dragons. You'll have a chance to take some photos here. Guests with less walking ability can walk partway or just stay at the ranger station where Komodo dragons are occasionally seen. An open bar with soft drinks and mineral water is available to you at the ranger station and reception area.

The monsoon forests of Komodo teem with activity of other wildlife, particularly in the morning before the sun is at its peak. Squawking cockatoos flock in often leafless trees, disturbing large green imperial pigeons, black-napped orioles, sun birds, flower-peckers, and noisy friarbirds, while shiny black dragoons and enormous crows soar nearby.

Finally, you will reach the finish point and have some free time for local souvenir shopping .

Notes:

Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed. The Komodo dragon is wild and is not artificially fed by the local authorities. The park rangers accompanying the tour will decide which route the trek will follow. Weather conditions can be extremely hot and shade is limited; dress accordingly, wear sunscreen and a hat, and bring bottled water.
