The Komodo dragon might not be a mythical fire-breathing creature but, as the largest land lizard in the world, it is a must-see.

The Alila Purnama, a luxury phinisi sailing ship, allows you to skip the lines at the zoo and head straight to the domain of these magnificent beasts, the Komodo National Park in Indonesia.

Thrill seekers can charter the 46m-long ship for up to 10 guests from May 16 to September, where they have the option of taking unlimited dives or trekking through the rainforests of the Komodo island.
