Bajo Komodo Ecolodge

The ecolodge is the best access point for boat trips to Komodo National Park

Bajo Komodo Ecolodge

The colonial-style Bajo Komodo Ecolodge was one of the first in Labuan Bajo on Flores Island. The lodge is located by a beach (not suitable for swimming) and has a small pool. There are 16 bright and spacious rooms within the main building, each equipped with air-conditioning and private hot water bathrooms.

The restaurant serves good a la carte meals, mostly a mix of western and traditional Indonesian. Bajo Komodo Ecolodge is the best access point for boat trips to Komodo National Park to see the impressive Komodo dragons. Scuba diving and snorkelling can also be arranged from the lodge.

Facilities

Comfortable and spacious rooms with mosquito nets, air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi, fan, hot water and western style shower and toilets. The restaurant has great sea views looking out over Komodo island.

Local Wildlife

The highlight is of course the Komodo dragons, but there are also introduced Timor deer, wild boar and water buffalo. The birdlife is also of great interest with the critically endangered yellow-crested cockatoo and orange-footed scrubfowl two of the highlights. There are also wonderfully diverse coral reefs.

We are back and all I can say is what a fantastic tour! Thank you so much for organising, we have both fallen in love with Indonesia and cannot wait to go back to see other things. Sulawesi was fabulous –the diving was so good it was like being in an aquarium. The tarsiers were all that I expected but the black macaques were so much more!

The first evening walk to see the Tarsiers, on the way we saw two Cuscus hanging about in the trees. We saw a couple of Macaques but the main event was the Tarsiers. We saw six in one tree and they are more cute/ugly as their photos. I could have stayed there all night watching them.

The next day we travelled back to see the Macaques, we were a little late and thought we had missed them as a we got to a group of people who had been watching them the macaques turned away into the bush. We carried on walking to look for kingfishers when we found ourselves in the middle of a monkey gang fight. Rambo 1 and Rambo 2 troops had travelled onto each other’s territory and  all hell broke loose! They didn’t care that we were there they just rushed back and forth hollering at each other, it was so exciting watching it.

Once all the testosterone subsided Rambo 2 relaxed and groomed each other we just stood in the middle of them watching them for ages. One  climbed a tree to communicate with me by sticking his tongue out and showing me some very strange facial expressions – Stewart thought he was asking me to be his 3rd wife!  As we stood watching them relaxing, one came to play with my shoelaces and then another liked my trousers, then a brave one climb up me and started grooming my hair! He didn’t give up easily, sticking his fingers in my eyes and kept looking at me seeing how I was reacting– it was a fantastic experience all round.

All  that is left to say is thank you again for giving us the wide variety of what we can see in Indonesia, it has whetted our appetite to see more!  Now to plan for next year –we will be in touch soon!
