All were great!!

The organiser was so nice! My partner forgot his contact lenses at our hotel (during a trip with two snorkelling events, you really need your contact lenses). She was able to organise someone to drive him back to our hostel and get his lenses before the boat left - she even delayed the boat for us! Thank you so so much!

This was probably one of the best trips we’ve taken so far in Indonesia. The good was really good and filling inDonesia food, the crew were friendly and helpful and at all times we knew where we were going on our itinerary. We got to see Komodo dragons and swam with manta rays which were the highlight of our trip. Thank you so much!

Helpful Questions from Other Travellers

Q
How much are Komodo National Park fees?
A
Komodo National Park fees are complicated. They depend on: the islands visited (which is weather dependent), whether it's a weekday or a weekend, whether the guest is a foreigner or a local, and the number of people on the boat (as ranger fees are shared). This is why no two people will tell you the same number when asked about fees! The fees are also complicated by the fact that they're set by the national government and paid directly to Jakarta. So there is little visibility on changes from time to time. This is why we usually advise international guests to bring cash of between IDR 350K to IDR 460K per person per day for weekdays and between IDR 400K to IDR 520K per person per day for weekends. This is more than you need, but it avoids you ending up short of cash if the boat doesn't have too many people or the fees suddenly change! A few of our trips include the fees in the price. You can see it listed in the inclusion list. If this is the case there is no need to bring cash with you.
Q
Can I still visit Komodo National Park in Jan-March rainy season?
A
While you can still visit Komodo National Park during the rainy season in Jan-March, there is a higher risk of boat trips being cancelled due to the weather. The risk is lowest for the 1-day speedboats (as they are more stable) so if you are going Jan-March, we would highly recommend doing a 1-day speedboat trip. Although the 2D1N trips and some 3D2N trips are still sailing during the rainy season, there is a slightly higher risk that they might be cancelled due to the weather. Given the unpredictability of the weather, the cancellation could happen at any time (even the morning of the trip). We will keep you updated as soon as we can if the weather prediction is not favourable for your trip. If your trip is cancelled due to the weather, you can choose to receive a full refund, OR reschedule your trip for the next day (if weather permits). So if you're travelling from Jan-March to Komodo, please plan some extra days for your trip so you have additional days to try again, even if your original trip is cancelled!
Q
Is the itinerary guaranteed?
A
The itinerary for Komodo National Park is very weather dependent, as the journey takes place out in open waters. Some days the currents are very strong, and it might not be safe to go to certain islands. We know this can be frustrating if you had your heart set on specific spots, but please be assured that the boat operators will do their very best to make sure you see the dragons and the highlights of the park - even if it's not identical to the itinerary here. A visit to Komodo is quite the adventure, so please do be prepared to embrace some level of uncertainty!
Q
What should I pack?
A
Cash for Komodo National Park Fees
Flip flops
If you're snorkelling, do bring ankle socks (as fins can rub on the back of your ankles)
Insect repellent
Sunglasses and Hat
Sunscreen
Swimwear
Toiletries
Towel
Trainers
Trekking shoes or Comfortable walking shoes
