Get to see the largest living species of lizard in the world, the Komodo dragon, at Rinca Island, and visit Batu Cermin cave whose insides are like a mirror reflecting the sunlight!
Day 1 – Denpasar / Labuan Bajo / Rinca Island / Labuan Bajo
Land safely at Komodo Airport which is located in the west of Flores in Labuan Bajo. Once you have collected your luggage, you will meet your tour representative who will transfer you to the pier of Labuan Bajo to be brought to Rinca Island. Rinca Island lies about a 2 and a half-hour boat ride away from the pier. Once you step foot onto the island, your experienced guide will lead you on a trek through the dry forests on the island which are home to many different types of wildlife, most notably the Komodo dragon.
Komodo dragons are formidable predators that can grow up to lengths of 3 metres, making them the largest living species of lizard in the world. They can only be found in specific islands of Indonesia, making them an interesting visit. Komodo dragons are heavy and strong creatures with whipping tails and venomous bites, so it is extremely important to not disturb or provoke them. They can run faster than a human for a short time, so always stay a distance from them and try not to approach them unless you’re with an experienced guide.
Besides Komodo dragons, other wild animals like deer, water buffalo, long-tailed macaques, pigs and numerous species of birds can also be found on Rinca Island. If you look up into the branches of trees every now and then you may spot birds, macaques or even young Komodo dragons having climbed up the trunks while foraging for food. At late afternoon, embark on an open-deck boat to Kalong Island as the sun sets beautifully to watch hundreds of flying foxes leaving the mangrove trees. Sail back to Labuan Bajo for dinner and rest at your hotel.
Day 2 – Labuan Bajo / Denpasar
After your breakfast, go on a short city sightseeing tour with your first stop being Batu Cermin (Mirror Stone) Cave. Batu Cermin is a limestone cave with a big hole in it through which rays of light will stream in and reflect of the slick rock surfaces of the cave’s insides. This phenomenon is what gives the cave its name. The cave contains interesting stalactite and stalagmite formations and various tunnels. When you’re done with your visit here, head to a local market to view goods and produce before being taken to the airport for your return flight to Denpasar.
