Komodo dragons are just one of many highlights to be had on a Komodo holiday with bat caves, pink beaches and traditional local villages bound to conjure up a few more. Sailing to coral hotspots coveted by clownfish, parrotfish and turtles will send snorkellers into seventh heaven, although it’s often the experiences on the driest of dry savanna hillsides that will have adventurers, accompanied by park rangers, quivering in their sandals.

Komodo holidays can be tailored to suit time constraints and interests, or run on a small group basis. Other than on Flores, accommodation will be a small boat with features ranging from en suite cabins to deck mattresses under the stars. Most travellers will combine a tour of the islands of Komodo National Park with other Indonesian islands, such as Bali or Lombok. And the west coast of the island of Flores, around Labuan Bajo, is fast becoming a holiday destination in its own right.
