KOMODO is situated 200 nautical miles east of Bali between the islands of Flores and Sumbawa. Komodo's symbol of international fame is it's dragons, the world's largest living Lizard. Indonesia declared the area a National Park in 1980, and in 1992 Komodo was declared of land on 4 major and numerous minor islands. The Komodo Dragon Varanus komodoesis is the largest lizard in the world. Also know as a varanid or monitor lizard, it grows to 2.5 meters in length and round 125 kilos. At the top of the food chain the dragon is an alert and agile predator, worthy of respect. Their bacteria laden bite is lethal without medical treatment. Their tails are also a powerful and dangerous weapon which can be thrashed with bone breaking force. The regular flicking of their tongues drives their acute sense of smell.
FLORES, a long island located between Sumbawa and Timor, is strewn with volcanoes in a mountain chain dividing it into several regions with distinctive languages and traditions, scenic beauty, good beaches, and natural wonders. The name is Portuguese for "flower", as the Portuguese were the first Europeans to colonize East Nusa Tenggara. Surrounded by 101 smaller islands, the Flores archipelago itself is endless in diversity. It is a dazzling kaleidoscope of prehistoric dragons and wild horses, colored mountain lakes and active volcanoes, traditional villages and megalithic cultures, coral reefs and untouched beaches. Flores is 360 kilometers long and varies from 12 to 70 kilometers wide. Although the rains here are often irregular, the high mountains insure a fairly constant supply of water. Elsewhere the people depend on manioc and corn.
