Star Clippers: A Look at the Bali Eastbound Route on the Star Clipper, Komodo Island
A itinerary highlight for most passengers, Tuesday morning started out with a visit to Komodo island, part of the Lesser Sunda chain of Indonesian islands, and the home of the 3m-long Komodo dragon. Komodo National Park covers the entire region, is home to more than 4,000 dragons, and is made up of rusty-red volcanic hills, savannah and forests. Its surrounding waters of seagrass beds, mangrove shrublands and coral reefs are famous for diving.
The world’s largest lizard, the Komodo dragon is arguably Indonesia’s best-conserved large animal, protected under Indonesian law.
During the two hour guided tour we were able to see many dragons on the island.
