Silversea Luxury Cruises À KOMODO ISLAND

Komodo Dragon

Komodo, the volcanic island of giant lizards, lies 320 miles (515 kilometres) east of Bali. Komodo is 25 miles (40 kilometres) long and 12 miles (19 kilometres) wide; its parched hills ascend to a height of 2,410 feet (734 metres). Komodo is home to a community of some 2000 people who make their living primarily from fishing. The island is the centrepiece of the Komodo National Park, where you will find the most tangible legacy left behind from the Jurassic Era. View more

Komodo Island was little-known and the Komodo dragons were only a myth until the giant lizards were scientifically described in 1912 . Extinct almost everywhere else, the island attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world who come to see the Komodo dragons in their natural habitat. Komodo National Park has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve. The Komodo dragon’s great bulk and weight are its most unique characteristics; even hatchlings average 20 inches (51 centimetres) in length. The adult male can reach 10 feet (3 metres) and weigh up to 330 pounds (150 kilos). Females attain only two-thirds of this size, and lay up to 30 eggs at a time. With their saw-like teeth, these fierce creatures are able to rip apart a deer, goat or wild pig. The animals have an uncanny sense of smell, and are considered among the world's most intelligent reptiles. They are quite agile over short distances, and can move swiftly to capture their prey. The Indonesian Directorate of Nature Conservation (PPA) administers Komodo National Park. Park Rangers must escort all visitors; independent exploration of the park is not permitted.

Excursions depuis KOMODO ISLAND

Komodo - Dragon's Lair

This outing on Komodo Island offers a rare opportunity to observe the legendary Komodo dragon in the wild.


Upon tendering ashore, park rangers accompany you on a walk to the dragon-viewing area. The hike along narrow paths requires walking in single file on compact mud or loose gravel. Watch out for roots and tree branches criss-crossing your way. The trees provide limited shade. At the viewing point, there is time to observe the reptiles and perhaps even watch them devour some of the bait.


After walking back to the ranger station via the shorter route, you can learn more about the island's fearsome creatures and shop for souvenirs before returning to the jetty and transferring back to the ship.


Guests not on tour may only visit the souvenir shop in the tender pier area.


Please note: This tour requires guests to walk to the viewing area which is a distance of approximately 1-1.5 miles (1.5-2 kilometres). Departures may be staggered and the tour sequence reversed to avoid overcrowding. Tour timing includes the required 30-40 minute registration process. The actual walking time varies and is approximately 40-60 minutes, depending on the pace of the group and highlights seen on the path. Guests are advised to wear lightweight clothing with sturdy, closed-toe shoes, and bring protection from the sun. Guests must stay with their assigned park ranger guide at all times; independent exploration of the island is strictly prohibited. Depending upon sea conditions, coming ashore may involve negotiating a ladder from the tender up to the jetty. The reptiles are carnivorous and their sense of smell for blood and flesh is very sensitive guests participating on this tour should not have any open wounds.
