  • Charter a boat in LB and sail with friends or family in peace to Rinca. The boat provides for water, coffee or tea and bananas. in the afternoon, they make a lunch for you on board. The crew speaks only or no English but are very helpful. Once on Rinca wait the boat at the port. A ranger welcomes you at the entrance and brings you at the ticket office. After the necessary tickets and stamps you need to choose a course. In very hot weather are the monitor lizards in the jungle and choose you for the medium walk. You see Buffalo, Timor deer and monitor lizards. That last you always see at the start in the rangerdorp. At the end you can get a small wooden varaantje or buy a t-shirt as a souvenir. Don't expect any Planet Earth States but it is unique to these animals to see in real life.
