Komodo Islands – home of Komodo Dragons in Indonesia

The Komodo National Park is one of the pure jewels of Indonesia. Its specific landscape and fauna makes it a unique destination for adventurous travellers and nature lovers.

It is a marine reserve with dozens of wild islands inhabited by the world famous Komodo Dragon!

Liveaboard Diving in Komodo National Park is considered by some as the best diving location in Indonesia and even one of the best spots in the world by many people for big fishes and amazing underwater life.

Crystal clear water, a lack of pollution, huge schools of fishes, pelagic fishes everywhere, sharks galore and the wonderful manta ray all year round make it a dream diving destination!

 

Komodo National Park is mostly a diving destination with not a lot of tourist infrastructure. The attraction here is the incredible nature, so it is possible to do other things during your stay or for the non divers such as:

Go trekking the Islands hills and the Kelimutu Volcano

Go to see the world famous Komodo dragons

Explore the typical flores Island (eg Python cave)

Go Snorkeling on a day trip cruise

There are a few travel agencies in Labuan Bajo which can organize all your excursions.

It is possible to enjoy the Komodo marine reserve all year round.

Dry season from April to December, average temperature of 26°C.

Rainy season from January to March, average temperature of 28°C.

The best time to visit Komodo National Park is between April and December during the dry season. The weather is very nice, not too hot with very little to no rain. The rainy season sometimes starts early in December, so if you don’t like getting wet plan your trip before.

You can spot the Komodo dragon all year round. However, the mating season runs from July to August and the nesting season from September to November and spotting the dragons is not as easy during these periods.
