Komodo National Park in Indonesia is at the confluence of Indian and Pacific Ocean. It hosts one of the most spectacular coral reefs in the world. It’s also home of the Komodo dragon, the largest lizard in the world.
I spent one day in the park, doing two dives with manta rays and sharks. Then I went to see the dragons. It was a very hot day, and I was wearing my scarf as sun protection. Then the guide gave me his staff while he was taking a picture of me. So it turned out that I was very fashionable posing with this super dragon. Here’s my impressions of that day:
Super day in Komodo National Park, Indonesia, the only natural habitat of the Komodo dragon (aka varan) – the largest lizard in the world, and home of one of the best preserved and affluent coral reefs at the confluence of Pacific and Indian oceans.
We saw 7-8 gigantic manta rays in low visibility, so I’m thinking we were probably surrounded by them ?.
Also, 2 reef sharks – one of them so close under me that I was afraid my diving skills are rusty and I may fall on it, so I slowly distanced myself.
The manta ray picture is not mine. I took it from the Internet just for the sake of proportions (show off). If I had a camera, mine would have been better – with three of them around us at one point ?.
These are my “hunting stories” of the day. All true
