On my first visit to the Rinca Island and Komodo Island, I suppose I must have gone overboard with videos of this not-so-friendly beast! I realised very quickly that Komodo Dragons are NOT very friendly!!!
But, I am glad I did go to this island when visiting Bali – although when I started my trip, it was not on my list.
I will add here that it is not advisable to go anywhere close to a Komodo Dragon, especially not within its biting distance. The saliva is very poisonous and can call kiss a human within 6 hours of being infected.
I did push my luck a bit as you can see in this video.
This fellow was deliberately annoyed
Hop on a flight from Bali to Labuan Bajo.
Get on a boat (there are options of basic converted-boats and more expensive luxury options) and sail to Rinca Island.
I paid USD400 for a 3 day trip (that became 4 because we were kinda stranded for one night thanks to a storm) – but check on the rates – this was in 2008 and I shared the converted-fishing boat with a Latvian family.
