- The finish point is Labuan Bajo (Flores) or Benoa (Bali)

- Major commercial flights provide convenient access to Benoa in Bali or Labuan Bajo in Flores.

Weather & Climate

Komodo National Park has a drier climate and shorter monsoon season than other parts of Indonesia, owing to the dry air mass flowing from Australia. This unique climate helped create the region’s dramatic savannah hills, often framed against a stunning blue sky in the dry months from April to November.

From April to June, the seas are typically calm with manta rays at peak numbers in the area. However, humidity may be on the high side, at times reaching 90%.

From July to August, the manta rays have been replaced with tourists visiting for peak season. However, due to the nature of the Aqua Blu’s itineraries (e.g. private landing sites and exclusive trekking routes), you will still feel as if you have the area to yourself. During these months, the sea may be rougher on some days due to winds. There is a chance of rain at night, and temperatures might get slightly chilly. Inside the Aqua Blu, you will be in utmost comfort, with temperature-controlled spaces and top-of-the-line stabilisers to minimise seasickness.

From September to November, sea and land temperatures begin to rise, while waves and wind fade in intensity. The manta rays begin to return, and you may even see sperm whales. October is the driest month in the Komodo National Park.

In the event that we are forced to change your arrangements, substitute arrangements of a similar standard will be provided.

Cancellation by The Tour Operator
The walks take place in very special wilderness settings. The tour operator is at the mercy of nature in all her beauty and all her fury. The tour operator will under no circumstance knowingly place at risk the health and well-being of our guests and guides. In the case of natural threats, acts of God and the like (e.g. bushfires, impassable snow, etc) the tour operator may need to cancel a walk with very little notice. In some cases, this can occur after the walk has commenced. The tour operator reserves the right to cancel any walk up to 60 days prior to departure if a minimum of 4 walkers are unable to meet for a tour. If the tour operator needs to cancel for any reason, the cost of the walk or any other costs associated with travel to the designated pick up point, overnight accommodation, meals, etc will not be covered by the Onlyluxe Travel and therefore we strongly recommend travel insurance be taken out prior to travel.

Force Majeure
'Force Majeure' means (without restriction) any event which Onlyluxe Travel or its third party providers could not, even with due care, foresee or avoid. Force Majeure covers events such as, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events beyond our control. In the case of Force Majeure Onlyluxe Travel will not accept liability, and reserves the right to change and cancel trips.

Evacuations
In rare circumstances, due to injury or unforeseen illness, the tour operator may need to evacuate you from a remote part of the walk. Helicopter evacuations are expensive and in most cases will be at a cost to the customer.

For Australian residents, under the Australian Government Medicare Act, it is prohibited for any domestic travel insurance product to provide any financial reimbursement with regard to ambulance or air ambulance services. We therefore strongly advise our customers to take specific ambulance cover through their health insurance provider. Evacuation cost will not be covered by the Onlyluxe Travel and therefore it is also strongly recommended that our customers take out travel insurance to cover (amongst other things) the costs associated with evacuation.

Travel Insurance
In view of the heavy cancellation penalties applied to cancelled reservations in certain circumstances, we strongly recommends suitable travel insurance be purchased at the time the holding deposit is paid. We recommend insurance cover that covers any loss which may be suffered due to cancellation. We also strongly recommend comprehensive travel insurance against loss of baggage and medical expenses.
