Komodo National Park is a must visit place. We went to Loh Liang at Komodo National Park. We got to see 5 huge komodos and got an opportunity to have our photos taken with the komodos - from a distance - by the help of the rangers, or course. If you're foreigner, please do not be surprised that the park... More

Fascinating! That sums the whole trekking experience to see the Komodo dragons up. As it's a National Park and the dragons are in the wild you could only visit with a guide(s). Our main guide spoke very good English and told us the history of the dragons, all about their lives from egg to adulthood along with true, albeit not... More

Visited Komodo and Rinca island on a 2d/1n tour booked at christopher's tours. One great experience! Lucky to see Buffalo, deer, wild boar, monkeys and of course many dragons. Also we were able to swim with manta rays and sea turtles. Had a stop on Pagar island for great views too. I would defenitely recommend this place to anyone visiting... More

Visiting this National Park is a must. There are 3 types of trekking, short, medium and long. Both the short and medium are less than an hour but you still get to see the dragons. First thing you´ll be asked to do is to get your ticket from the National Park officers. It´s a bit of a bureaucratic process with... More

Komodo dragons are so larger and wilder than my image. When we visited the national park at 9, they stayed on the ground only. It was still hot and they don't like. They were large and I felt if they attack us, it is better to run away only. It was good experience to see them in the wild nature.... More

We visited Komodo during a cruise through Indonesia. We had rangers guiding through a hike through the island. On the trail we saw a few deer's and a few large Komodo dragons at their nest. One female was getting ready to attack but the rangers were very calm and kept us all safe, so no one was injured or attacked... More

During a two day one night boat tour we visited the Komodo island and its national park. It was amazing! The rangers are local people from the village who grew up there along side the komodo dragons. Their stories are incredible and also heart breaking. How they respect the animals is incredible, so hearing about stories that people got attacked... More

Our guide took us through the forest where we saw a Komodo nest and several 8 to 9 foot Komodo's and also a little one crossed the trail ahead of us. There lots of park rangers there so if you stay with your guides there is no problem. They are very friendly people that live on the island along with... More
