Aside from snorkeling fabulous reefs we’ve designed this safari to offer topside highlights as we tour between the regions. Our time on Bali will be spent in more remote areas of the island with the intention of getting a flavour of the heritage and culture of rural life found here. As we travel east to Komodo we’ll trek on remote islands, visit idyllic beaches and see the legendary Komodo Dragons. For the snorkeling enthusiast, we’ve dedicated lots of time in the water with time spent around Menjangan Island on the North West of Bali and plenty of time to explore the amazing reefs of Komodo National Park. We think this safari will appeal to a traveller looking for a mix of experiences above and below the surface.
