When Is the Best Time
Best time to visit Rinca (Komodo National Park) is during the dry season. During the wet season from January to March the paths are muddy and difficult to walk.
Crowded in July and August and less busy from September to November.

Location and Tips
You can spot the Komodo dragon on two islands of the Komodo National Park; Komodo island and Rinca. On Rinca, it is much easier as the dragons hang around the ranger station.
You can take a hike on three different trails, and I'd recommend either the medium or the long trail as both will show you the beauty of the island. Rinca is more a dry area, so don't expect any rain forest. The dragons either protect their nest or wait for prey next to a waterhole. They look quite clumsy, but when prey is available, they move fast.
