How the Heck do you get to Komodo NP?!

You have seen the footage on BBC’s series ‘Life,’ read my evaluation article telling you how awesome it is, and have convinced yourself that this is a place you just HAVE TO SEE with your own eyes… hmm… now what?

Komodo National Park

Dragon - Komodo National ParkLocation: (near) Flores, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia

Visited: July 30-Aug 1, 2013

Site Type: Natural Site

Background and Opinion:
