Kamana Trip

Kamana Trip was formed in 2017 by a travel blogger from Bandung, Indonesia. He was on a trip to his dream destination, Komodo National Park, and found it incredibly frustrating dealing with the yet-developing tourism industry in Komodo. He founded Kamana Trip so that he could bring about a higher quality of service to travellers to Komodo, with better boats at affordable prices.

It was a good trip and we made the most of the good weather, except for a bit of rain on the last day. The crew were very caring and made sure we enjoyed the trip from beginning to end. The guide, Phion did a good job, being with us like a traveller and taking care of our son, including cradling him for a while during the Padar Island hike. He also took me to the Komodo village on Komodo Island, providing me with a chance to meet the villagers and see around their tiny settlement. The food was fine and we particularly liked the drinks. Looks like the roof needs to be fixed to avoid water leaking in the bedroom during rain. The first two days went according to plan, however, the final day was a bit of a disappointer, I must say. We had been given a hint at possible bad weather the previous night and it was confirmed on the third day morning. The guide informed us we could not make it to Taka Makassar and Kanawa as the waves could be menacing. Instead, they would try to look for some 'less known spots' near the Komodo island. A while after, this was not the case. They asked us if we could return to Labuan Bajo if the rain didn't stop soon though the sky was brightening up quickly. I wasn't happy happy about this and asked for one spot to stop by on the way back and revisit Manjerite snorkelling spot (which we did on Day 1). They agreed, but again, there was no stop at any scenic spot, rather the boat headed to Manjerite. We had a good time there before reaching back to LB at 1 pm. The itinerary says the tour ends at 4.10 pm on the last day. We had no problem abiding by the Captain's rules and regulations set based on weather conditions. At the same time, we felt that they could have taken us to other spots where we wouldn't meet with rough seas. We passed by several beaches on the way back and we had years of time to relax there or take a swim. The boats that sailed with us (the same ones, more than 10 or 12) on Day 1 & 2 were not to be seen with us on the way back. May be something the organisers could think about for future trips. Thanks.

I am very dissapointed , you are misseling and missinforming people , the ship crew ismaking extra money on park entry 350.000 is a bit much . You advertised komodo island but we git rinca instead plus instead of 5 destination there were four. I do expect a partial refund as reimbursment, orllotherwise i will ensure my review is on every single website you advertise your services.

Dear Andrzej,

We are very sorry to hear you did not have an enjoyable experience during your trip to Komodo National Park.
Our listing does say that the itinerary is weather dependent (please note the language at the itinerary section: This is a sample itinerary and may be weather-dependent. Start/end times may depend on transport chosen.) It is not always possible to make it to all the islands due to safety reasons. This was the unfortunate case during your trip and the reason why the captain directed the route to Rinca rather than Komodo.

The itinerary advertises only four locations. You will note there is a slash between Manjerite and Kelor. I'm sorry if that was not clear.

Finally, we are not sure what you mean by "crew makes money" from the park entrance fees. These fees are set by Komodo National Park, and the crew assist to collect and pay the fees so as to expedite the process. If there is something else you have in mind, do let us know.

Once again our sincere apologies your trip did not go as planned.

Really enjoyed the trip. I especially liked swimming with the Manta Rays that was a once in a lifetime experience! The food was very tasty and our guide Teddy was very friendly and knowledgeable. My only criticism would be that I felt a bit cramped on the boat, it was very hot and when the boat wasn't moving it felt very stuffy. We were right at the front so could open the window. Really enjoyed the day though I would definitely recommend.

Went for 2d1n trip. The boat is clean and comfy with various spaces to chill. The crews are nice and very accommodating with our wishes. The food is plenty and tasty, especially the juice and seafood. The price is also great!

Helpful Questions from Other Travellers

How much are Komodo National Park fees?
Komodo National Park fees are complicated. They depend on: the islands visited (which is weather dependent), whether it's a weekday or a weekend, whether the guest is a foreigner or a local, and the number of people on the boat (as ranger fees are shared). This is why no two people will tell you the same number when asked about fees! The fees are also complicated by the fact that they're set by the national government and paid directly to Jakarta. So there is little visibility on changes from time to time. This is why we usually advise international guests to bring cash of between IDR 350K to IDR 460K per person per day for weekdays and between IDR 400K to IDR 520K per person per day for weekends. This is more than you need, but it avoids you ending up short of cash if the boat doesn't have too many people or the fees suddenly change! A few of our trips include the fees in the price. You can see it listed in the inclusion list. If this is the case there is no need to bring cash with you.
Can I still visit Komodo National Park in Jan-March rainy season?
While you can still visit Komodo National Park during the rainy season in Jan-March, there is a higher risk of boat trips being cancelled due to the weather. The risk is lowest for the 1-day speedboats (as they are more stable) so if you are going Jan-March, we would highly recommend doing a 1-day speedboat trip. Although the 2D1N trips and some 3D2N trips are still sailing during the rainy season, there is a slightly higher risk that they might be cancelled due to the weather. Given the unpredictability of the weather, the cancellation could happen at any time (even the morning of the trip). We will keep you updated as soon as we can if the weather prediction is not favourable for your trip. If your trip is cancelled due to the weather, you can choose to receive a full refund, OR reschedule your trip for the next day (if weather permits). So if you're travelling from Jan-March to Komodo, please plan some extra days for your trip so you have additional days to try again, even if your original trip is cancelled!
Is the itinerary guaranteed?
The itinerary for Komodo National Park is very weather dependent, as the journey takes place out in open waters. Some days the currents are very strong, and it might not be safe to go to certain islands. We know this can be frustrating if you had your heart set on specific spots, but please be assured that the boat operators will do their very best to make sure you see the dragons and the highlights of the park - even if it's not identical to the itinerary here. A visit to Komodo is quite the adventure, so please do be prepared to embrace some level of uncertainty!
