Where and Tips

Komodo Island

On two islands of the komodo national park you are able to spot the komodo dragon; komodo island or rinca. On rinca it is much easier as the dragon hangh around the ranger station.
You can take a hike on three different trails and I'd recommend either the medium or the long trail as both will show you the beauty of the island.
Rinca is more a dry area, so don't expect any rain forest. The dragons are either guiding their nest or waiting for prey next to a waterhole. They look quite clumsy but when prey is available the are real fast.
