Komodo National Park
Komodo National Park is one of the most diverse and interesting places on Earth.
Home to Komodo dragons, dozens of other reptiles and amphibians, thousands of birds, and a wide variety of marine life, the park is a naturalist's dream. The dragons, the largest lizards on the planet, are the star attraction, but the park is also a great place to see whales, dolphins, manta rays, and other large fish. There are several beautiful, isolated beaches in the park, and the hiking is excellent. Be prepared for a hot, humid, and challenging environment, but the rewards are many.
