Wildlife holidays in Indonesia
Tell me about Indonesia …
The archipelago of Indonesia lies across the equator and is made up of over 17,000 islands, of which about 6,000 are inhabited. It is the largest archipelago in the world and, with over 252 million people, is the fourth most populous country comprising hundreds of different native ethnic and linguistic groups.
Indonesia supports the world’s second highest level of biodiversity (after Brazil) and second highest number of endemic species (after Australia). The largest islands are Java, Sumatra, Borneo, New Guinea and Sulawesi; two of the smaller islands - Bali and Komodo - bookend our cruise to the archipelago, and are famous for their breathtakingly beautiful beaches and superb wildlife, respectively.
Our Indonesia Specialist recommends...
"Komodo Dragons, the world’s largest species of lizard, were first brought to a global audience by Sir David Attenborough’s seminal “Zoo Quest” series in 1956. Since then they have been filmed many times, and continue to capture the imaginations of wildlife enthusiasts worldwide. Our ‘Bali and Komodo’ cruise, led by world-renowned marine biologist Dr Chas Anderson, offers a chance to encounter these extraordinary reptiles, as well as snorkel on pristine reefs, look for birdlife, cetaceans and much more, from the comfort of our exclusively chartered cruise vessel. There’s also a chance to enjoy Bali’s matchless beaches before and after the tour."
