Komodo Dragons

Seeing these iconic lizards, the world’s largest, on their home turf is magical, prehistoric almost. Lazily walking along the beach, they patrol the islands of Rinca and Komodo detecting food with forked tongues – ready to devour their prey with sharp serrated teeth. Based in Labuan Bajo, take a day boat to explore the islands – ideally private to allow for flexibility and a more bespoke experience.

Family Adventures

Bank a lifetime of family memories. Indonesia offers younger children safe, gently shelving beaches with an early introduction to exciting wildlife while older children can take full advantage of this diverse county, from cycling to sailing, diving and conservation. With Indonesia’s weather at its best during the long European summer holidays there is time to really explore. Add on Java for some ancient culture or stay on a houseboat in Tanjung Puting National Park to walk amongst endangered orangutans.
