On "Flores Highway" to the Komodo dragons ...

A unique tourist attraction that is world-famous and can only be found here, are the prehistoric Komodo dragons that live on the islands Komodo and Rinca. From Labuan Bajo you can reach the islands Komodo and Rinca by boat Both islands belong to the Komodo national park. About 1200 of the around 3000 Komodo dragons live on the smaller "Dragon" - Island Rinca. Because of that, Rinca Island is densely populated with Komodo dragons and it is most likely to experience these prehistoric animals in the wild. As Rinca Island is more scenic and located closer to Labuan Bajo, we recommend Rinca Island for a visit to the Komodo dragons.

There is only one road from Eastern Flores to Western Flores and we lovingly call it "Flores-Highway". From Maumere to Labuan Bajo the way is "only" 550 km, but as the landscape is very mountainous and the "Flores Highway" is not always in good condition, you need 20 hours driving time for this route. In order to have enough time to visit all the attractions without hurry, we recommend you to allow 4 days with 3 overnight stays (in Moni, Bajawa and Ruteng) for the trip from Maumere to Labuan Bajo. If you should start your trip from Maumere to Labuan Bajo early in the morning ( 5 - 6 o'clock a.m.), 3 days and 2 overnight stays (in Bajawa und Ruteng) could also be enough. It is possible, but absolutely not recommendable, to jet from Maumere to Labuan Bajo in 2 days.

It is possible to integrate a side trip to Riung on the Northern coast of Flores and to the 17-Island-Nationalpark and/or trekking to Wae Rebo.

For your tour from Maumere to Labuan Bajo, we can glady arrange an air-conditioned car and a driver for you. Should you prefer, we would be glad to organize your individual tour with an English or German- speaking guide and all the overnight stays during your tour.
