Komodo National Park
Komodo National Park covers three large islands: Komodo,
Rinca and Padar, and 26 small islands. There are 11
small mountains or large hills, the highest being Mt.
Satalibo (" 735 m asl.).
The dry and barren condition of the Park has produced a
certain uniqueness. The expanse of savanna, limited
water sources and a relatively hot temperature is indeed
the preferred habitat of an ancient animal species, the
Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis).
Most of the Park area is savanna with the fan palm (Borassus
flabellifer) as the dominant characteristic plant. Other
plants include rattan (Calamus sp.), bamboo (Bambusa
sp.), tamarind (Tamarindus indica), kepuh (Sterculia
foetida), bidara (Ziziphus jujuba), kesambi (Schleichera
oleosa), and mangrove (Rhizophora sp.).
Besides the Komodo dragon, the Park is also a habitat
for deer (Cervus timorensis floresiensis), wild pig (Sus
scrofa), Asian wild dog (Cuon alpinus javanicus), wild
horse (Equus qaballus), wild buffalo (Bubalus bubalis),
dugong (Dugong dugon); 259 species of coral and 1,000
species of fish, 6 species of whale, 10 species of
dolphin, as well as turtles and several species of
snake, birds and sharks.
Komodo National Park is a national asset and it has
received technical assistance to manage it to
international standards. It has been declared by UNESCO
as both a Natural World Heritage Site and a Biosphere
This Park is frequently visited by international
tourists, who often describe it as being like another
world. Open plains stretch as far as the eye can see,
with the silhouette of occasional fan palms standing out
starkly against a background of mountains. The vista of
parched and barren savanna is broken by the calls of
birds and wild horses, while under the harsh rays of the
sun, giant reptiles bathe in the clear blue waters of
the Flores sea. It is an unforgettable experience.
