After cruising during the night from Flores, we arrived right after sunrise at Komodo. The topography we saw from National Geographic Orion was comprised of a mixture of savanna and dry forest. It just increased our desire to disembark and explore the Komodo National Park.

Once we disembarked, we divided into groups. Some of our guests went on a long hike, while the rest explored the park. Both hikes gave our guests the opportunity to see the Komodo dragons in their natural habitat. Our naturalists and local guides also spotted different species of birds.

Back on board, we repositioned to a nearby oasis known as Pink Beach, where we had our afternoon activities. Some of our guests went diving while others went snorkeling. They all had a spectacular time enjoying the underwater world.

It was another great day of exploration!
