Komodo Rinca Tour, Trekking with Ranger
Your Rinca trekking trip must be accompanied by a ranger. Rangers are local residents who are familiar with the ins and outs of the island of Rinca. The popularity of Rinca Island and other large islands is a blessing for local residents. The local people’s economy is lifted by the large number of domestic and foreign tourists visiting.
Trekking on Rinca island is a challenge for travelers. You may suddenly meet Komodo while on the trip. This is the reason why travelers who want to do trekking must be accompanied by a ranger. Rangers are very experienced when Komodo dragons suddenly become aggressive.
Ranger will be armed with branched wood and guide your trekking journey. You will also be provided with branched wood if a Komodo dragon suddenly moves closer and more aggressively. You need to know before doing trekking on Rinca island, that Komodo has a color similar to rocks. They are usually shaded by trees so you will hardly recognize them.
Komodo dragons are carnivorous animals that can chase their prey at a speed of 20-30 kilometers per hour. Their sense of smell is very sharp and can smell blood from a distance. Tourists, especially women who are menstruating should report first so that the ranger can pay extra attention.
If you arrive on Rinca island in the afternoon, you should take short or medium trekking. Long trekking will take you through the forest and allow you to meet more Komodo dragons. You will also pass by Komodo nests laying eggs when doing long trekking. The view of your short or medium trekking Rinca tour is no less amazing. You will see the expanse of meadows and views of the savanna.
You will also find some wild animals such as deer and wild pigs which are prey for Komodo dragons. All the animals and the state of the Komodo National Park are deliberately left wild and natural. These wild animals are protected, so hunting wild animals here is also not allowed.
