9 Days Komodo Dragons Tour

Komodo Dragons & Hill Tribes of Flores

Komodo Dragons & Komodo National Park Tour. If you are looking for a real magical getaway and a walking experience, then there is nothing better than a trip to Flores and in particular Wae Rebo. Flores is one of the most stunning Indonesian Islands with a more rustic and rawer feel to it. The people are more laid back like in the Caribbean and the similarities don’t stop there. Tin corrugated iron roofs and the colourful hop on- hop off mini buses, that the locals use as transportation, are all what you would expect in the West Indies rather than an Indonesian Island.

The highlight of this break is the trek up to Wae Rebo, an old Manggarainan village. However, the journey and overnight in Denge is also an adventure itself. The day ending with dinner being served on your homestay porch overlooking rice fields, the sea and the stunning Mules Island in the distance.

The next day’s trek to Wae Rebo (suitable for all) takes you through the forest and up in to the clouds. Once you arrive you announce yourself by sounding the bamboo clacker before being welcomed by the village chief and sitting down to lunch. You can then immerse yourself in local life with the highlight being an overnight stay in a ‘Mbaru Niang’, a traditional circular coned shaped house.

Spending time on water, exploring the regions, hidden beaches and then discovering the prehistoric Komodo dragons is a wildlife lover’s dream. The national Parks in the region are discoverable by boat, and are simply stunning, the beaches are some of the very best in the world, but quiet and private as there are still not too many visitors to this magical area of Indonesia.

Komodo Dragons Detailed Itinerary Komodo Dragons Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Labuan Bajo

Upon arrival in Labuan Bajo you will be met by a ‘See Asia Differently’ representative and transferred to your hotel on the coast, where you have the afternoon to relax and enjoy the beach as you wish.

Day 2: Labuan Bajo to Denge

Today you will travel inland on a 6-hour drive to your homestay in Denge. The drive is very beautiful and has a very contrasting scenery. You start by driving in to the hills and then through a huge expanse of rice fields on a flat plateau to Lembor, where you will pause for lunch. You then have one final drive along the coast until you arrive at your incredible homestay that has views across rice fields, the sea and the magnificent Mules Island in the distance.
Overnight in Denge (Meals: B/_/D)

Day 3: Denge to Wae Rebo

The day starts with a short drive to where the trek to the majestic Wae Rebo village begins. A Japanese photographer was the first foreigner, who found the village back in 1992. Wae Rebo sits in a valley surrounded by a virgin forest. The trek takes you along stone laid paths and woodland before flattening out, as you reach the incredible traditional tree top village, which will be your home for the night. The trek takes approximately 4 hours and is 9km long, and it is so well worth it, as you get to spend an afternoon and evening in this tribal village.
Overnight in Wae Rebo (Meals: B/L/D)

Day 4: Wae Rebo to Denge

After spending time in the village and observing daily life, as well as sleeping in one of the traditional Manggaraian Village cone shaped huts, you will pack up, say your goodbyes to the village chief and start the hiking back down to Denge. You will take a boat over to the stunning Mules Island for some swimming, snorkelling and a picnic lunch. For the evening you return back to your homestay to enjoy a 3 course local meal as prepared by your hosts.
