Komodo National Park
Witness the beauty of Komodo National Park, one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, the original habitat of over 2,500 komodo dragons, and experience one of the most memorable holidays of your lifetime by leaving your personal legacy in the heart of many children in remote villages of Flores.
Travel Sparks trips are customised. We take the time to arrange everything based on your time and interests. Whether you love diving, trekking, or just spending the day on a deserted beach, we are happy to help design a one-of-a-kind holiday just for you. There’s no minimum group size and volunteer opportunities are completely optional.
Sights and Activities
During your holiday, you will explore Komodo National Park, snorkel in crystal clear water and gorgeous coral reefs, sunbath on the famous Pink Beach, and do some trekking in Komodo National Park, spotting komodo dragons in the wild accompanied by the park ranger, and marvel the spectacular views from the hills of Komodo Island and Rinca Island as well as witnessing thousands of bats migrating from one island to another islands during the sunset.
You will also have free time to be a beach bum on white sandy beaches, enjoy the sunset drinks over a gorgeous landscape, reading, photography and listening to your favorite tunes surrounded by beautiful nature all around.
Your holiday will be combined by volunteering activities such as teaching English, arts, crafts, music, and many more, for the kids at Taman Bacaan Pelangi (Rainbow Reading Gardens), who live in remote villages. Not only that, you will also take part in distributing and rotating the books at those villages, an effort to provide new collection of books for the kids at the Taman Bacaan Pelangi libraries.
You are welcomed to bring children books to be donated to Taman Bacaan Pelangi, where we share some of the proceeds from this Komodo Volunteer Vacation package.
My family and friends were the guinea pigs in sampling what Travel Sparks had to offer. It turned out to be our most educational, involved and fun vacations we ever had.
Travel Sparks combines Nila’s love and familiarity with the eastern Indonesian islands and people with her passion to get children into the reading habit via her movement, Taman Bacaan Pelangi (Rainbow Reading Garden).
As a result our 5-day trip to Labuan Bajo, Komodo Island and the areas turned out to be a perfect mix of experiencing the beauty of the area, the adventure of going to Komodo Island and watching the eponymous giant lizards in their habitat and participative, fun do gooding when we visited a village on Rinca Island and another in the mountain range behind Labuan Bajo, where we also experienced local culture in the form of the Caci Whip Fighting Ceremony.
