Encounter antediluvian creatures unchanged since prehistoric times, these two islands are the only places that the infamous Komodo dragon can still be found.

Known as the Four Kings, these 40,000 square kilometres of the Indonesian archipelago in the northeast seas are where the Pacific and Indian Oceans collide. These nutrient-rich waters nurture magnificent coral reefs and marine life unlike anywhere else.

As beautiful above water as it is below, the islands are cloaked in exotic flora and fauna such as karst forests of endangered orchids, look up to see sea eagles and the famed birds of paradise. Explore the hidden jungle caves of Tolomol, kayak through giant sea caverns and discover the treasures of a pearl farm too.
