  • Komodo, deer, monkeys, and water buffalo all can be found near the rangers station at the front of the park. The parks system is improving day by day and it's worth seeing and supporting these rare creatures. You'll only need a few minutes to find a Komodo, a short walk around the park takes about an hour, but there are options to stay and hike longer. Consider visiting during or after rainy season when the trees are bright green and vivid.
  • Cool island to visit and see the dragons.
