Kamana Trip

Kamana Trip was formed in 2017 by a travel blogger from Bandung, Indonesia. He was on a trip to his dream destination, Komodo National Park, and found it incredibly frustrating dealing with the yet-developing tourism industry in Komodo. He founded Kamana Trip so that he could bring about a higher quality of service to travellers to Komodo, with better boats at affordable prices.

Really enjoyed the trip. I especially liked swimming with the Manta Rays that was a once in a lifetime experience! The food was very tasty and our guide Teddy was very friendly and knowledgeable. My only criticism would be that I felt a bit cramped on the boat, it was very hot and when the boat wasn't moving it felt very stuffy. We were right at the front so could open the window. Really enjoyed the day though I would definitely recommend.

We had 2days1night private trip with 3 people. The boat was very nice, clean, and the staffs maintained its cleanliness very well. The staffs were very nice, they served us many foods and they were all delicious! The guide was also willingly to explain all about labuan bajo. We hope to stay longer but we couldn’t, too bad!

Went for 2d1n trip. The boat is clean and comfy with various spaces to chill. The crews are nice and very accommodating with our wishes. The food is plenty and tasty, especially the juice and seafood. The price is also great!

It was a perfect trip and one of my best experience. The trip was planed really good, and also they have an awesome backup plan if the first plan didn't go well. The boat was really comfort to live on board, also the food they served was well-arranged and was not dissappointing. Good job for the trip planner, it was a pleasure to sail with you guys. Keep up the good work!

How much are Komodo National Park fees?

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.

Can I still visit Komodo National Park in Jan-March rainy season?

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 are still sailing during the rainy season, there is a slightly higher risk that the 2D1N trips might be cancelled due to the weather. The 3D2N trips do not tend to sail during Jan-March.

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!

Is the itinerary guaranteed?

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!
