Reviews for Flores & Komodo vacation, Indonesia


review 12 Nov 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Seeing Komodo dragons, manta rays and turtles in the wild, visiting local villages in Flores, particularly Wae Rebo which is only accessible after a 10k hike.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

1. Going out of season isn't a bad idea. We went in late October/early November and it was great as there were less tourists around. Although it's the start of rainy season, it didn't impede our trip at all. I imagine some places (such as Komodo/Rinca islands) are crazy in peak season. 2. Check the best times of the years to see the Komodo Dragons. For instance, apparently they're not easy to see during mating season. 3. It's helpful to have loo roll with you as some of the accommodation (for instance in Wae Rebo village) does not supply it, neither do any public loos.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. We visited various local villages to gain an understanding of their way of life and help support it. The trip also helped support the animals (such as Komodo Dragons) which we saw in the wild.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Amazing. It was full of variety - from seeing animals in the wild to visiting local villages; from gorgeous beaches to lush jungle and cool mountain areas. Flores is a beautiful place; well worth seeing before it becomes too well known!
