Komodo Island is located in the lesser Sunda islands, east from Java and Bali. If you’re boarding an international flight, the island can be reached via Jakarta or Bali. From either of the two cities, you can take a domestic flight to Labuan Bajo (also known as Komodo Airport) in Flores, which is the hub for Komodo tours. A flight from Jakarta to Labuan Bajo will take about 2.5 hours while a trip from Bali will only take one hour.
While there is no bad time to explore a strange island inhabited by ancient dragon species and other mesmerizing wildlife, it’s good to know what you can expect when visiting at any certain time. March-June is favored for the amazing green landscape everywhere, calm and clear sea. September-November is ideal for spotting marine wildlife, such as mantas, whale sharks, sperm whales, and more. July-August is the high season, so the island will be swarmed with tourists. If you have to go during this period, try to book early for tours and accommodation. In January, the monsoon is starting to kick in, peaking in February. Many tours choose not to operate during this time.
For Ladies, make sure to check your menstrual cycle before planning your visit to Komodo Island. Komodo is a wild beast that can smell blood as far as 12 miles, and sometimes it triggers their aggression and predatory instinct. It’s best to avoid exploring the island during your period, this may seem delicate but you can still try to discuss with the tour guide or park ranger in advance and they will advise what to do depending on the situation.
There are plenty of tour services operating around the islands of Komodo National Park. You may want to research their services and prices beforehand and book in advance, as each has its own advantage. Some services like Komodo Dreamland Tour offers several boat tour packages with different highlights. You can also choose a boat tour service in advance and make sure you go with the more reputable ones.
Exploring Komodo Island will involve a lot of trekking, so choose your clothes accordingly. Pick cotton-based clothes that absorb sweat and choose a comfortable pair of shoes or mountain sandals. Also, don’t forget your swimsuit — Komodo Island has the dreamiest beaches and lively marine biodiversity.
The tropical weather on a small island can be scorching. The sun may be extremely hot, so don’t forget your sunblock or something to protect you from the sun you have. Wearing a hat is also advisable when trekking in the open savannah.
Boat tours do not provide cameras. You may not need to be reminded to bring a camera but if you want to go all-out in capturing the picturesque natural beauty of Komodo Island, you may also need your telephoto lenses, underwater camera, or even macro lenses for the wildlife.
Prepare your cash in IDR or USD cash. Some tours around the Park have not included an entrance fee, so please prepare an entrance fee ahead. Entrance fee is paid IDR cash on the spot. Even if you’ve paid for your tour services, always have cash on you, in case you need to buy anything from food to souvenirs.
