Being less known and less visited yet more Jurassic Park than Komodo, it is a good place to see the Komodo dragon in its natural environment with fewer people to disturb them.
On Rinca Island, you can see these giant lizards outside the homes of national park rangers, hunting, preying or leisurely basking under the trees. The trek in Rinca Island takes approximately 1.5 – 2 hours, crossing the dry savannah, onto the waterhole before leading to the seashore. Aside of the dragons, Rinca Island is also abounding with local wildlife including macaques, buffaloes, deer, birds and pigs. The island also offer stunning beaches and is a great place to snorkel and diving given its teeming underwater life.
