Disembark at Rinca Island, home to the mighty Komodo dragon as well as a range of other wildlife including deer, horses, buffalo, pigs and megapodes. Trek through the jungle where you may spot more dragons hiding in the grassy undergrowth. The dragons on Rinca are slightly smaller than those on Komodo, but just as formidable.

Day 5: Komodo Island

Komodo Island

After breakfast, disembark on Komodo Island and begin the walk - taking around 2km - across the island to Banunggulung, a former feeding site and one of the best places to spot Komodo dragons in their natural habitat. It is estimated that there are around 2,000 dragons on the island, as well as a wide variety of other wildlife such as wild boar, deer and buffalo. The island is also excellent for bird watchers, with cockatoos and gosong birds. Return to your boat for lunch before arriving at Pantai Merah (Pink Beach), named because the red coral on the seabed breaks off with the tidal changes and mixes with the sand, causing it to turn a pale pink colour. Here, jump overboard and snorkel in the clear waters, where you can see an incredible array of parrot fish, clown fish and, if you are lucky other sea creatures, including turtles. There is plenty of time to swim and snorkel here and to relax on the beach before spending the night on the boat.

Day 6: Komodo Island to Bali

Bali

After breakfast, disembark in Labuan Bajo and, if time permits, take a short tour to Batu Cermin Cave.
