Liveaboard sailing in Komodo National Park, Flores, is essentially a rugged adventure. How it’s not? Once you set sail from the port town, Labuan Bajo, everything surrounding you is just the wild nature. The islands in and around the National Park are almost completely devoid of mass development, with the exception of few dots of civilisation sprinkle on the main Komodo Island and a few resort in other secluded island. The rests are just jagged hills covered with golden savannah grasses and empty beaches. Everything is beautifully conserved in their wildest state.
Many people sees travelling to Komodo as a chance to get back to basic—just like camping deep in the forest. But just like camping, here comes the equivalent of “glamping” (glamour camping); the Luxury Liveaboard Komodo. The answer for people who like to enjoy the nature at its finest without having to give up on creature comfort.
