The Komodo National Park is made up of a group of Indonesian islands and their surrounding waters, of which the main three are Komodo, Rinca and Padar.

Home to the fearsome looking komodo dragon, the islands are a rich tropical environment with many other native species of birds and animals. The coral reefs surrounding the islands harbour over a thousand species of tropical fish, with whales, sharks, manta rays, dolphins and sea turtles among the diverse marine life that inhabits the park.

As you might imagine, diving and snorkelling are popular activities, while walking trails and guided tours take visitors to see the dragons and other animals on the islands. Accommodation is available on Komodo Island in the form of fairly basic lodges close to the park rangers' station.

Where is it?
Komodo National Park is located right in the middle of the Indonesian archipelago, between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores.

What is it?
A UNESCO World Heritage site, established to protect the natural environment of the komodo dragons and other indigenous species.

Best time to visit?
While temperatures remain pretty steady around the mid-twenties for most of the year, the dry season for the Komodo National Park is between April and December.

Must see?
The dragons of course! A trip to the Komodo National Park would simply not be complete without seeing the eponymous dragons.
