Flores & Komodo

The island of Flores is found in the East of the Lesser Sunda Islands. Despite a steady increase in tourism here, the island remains remarkably unspoilt and authentic; meeting locals in their remote community villages is not only possible but a 'must do'. The inhabitants always welcome visitors with open arms offering a unique chance to learn about the fascinating culture and traditions of this isolated paradise. Other 'musts' include the picture-perfect spiderweb rice fields in central Flores and the incredible volcano crater lakes of Kelimutu. The West tip of Flores is part of the famous Komodo National Park and home to Labuan Bajo harbour from which it is possible to reach Komodo Island itself. The marine life in this National Park is truly incredible; the only place in the world where you can meet Komodo dragons...
