To come to Indonesia and not visit the lush habitat of the world’s most famous 3-meter long monitor lizard would be an utter shame. The Komodo Island, part of the Lesser Sunda chain of Indonesian islands, encompasses a UNESCO-designated nature reserve, which is home to over 4000 massive carnivorous lizards. Surrounded by rusty-red volcanic hills, savannah grasslands, lush mangroves and gorgeous beaches, Komodo offers great diving and snorkeling adventures showcasing superb coral reefs, along with stingrays, dolphins, sharks, whales and green sea turtles. Enjoy the panoramic views of the island and spot several horses, wild buffaloes, wild boar, monkeys and numerous bird species, apart from the intimidating dragons. Trek with a seasoned guide to see these reptile species up close and enjoy a ravishing dive in the crystal-clear water of the island.
