National Parks

Amanwana lies within one of the globe’s most breathtaking collections of National Parks, encompassing land, sea and an awe-inspiring wealth of biodiversity. Amanwana is the only resort on Moyo Island, part of Moyo Satonda National Park, and rests on the shores of a protected marine park offering some of Indonesia’s best scuba diving and snorkelling sites. Tambora National Park on Sumbawa Island is equally spectacular, known for its in-land salt-water lake, giant crater and vibrant seascape. And then there’s Komodo National Park, where the legendary Komodo dragons can be seen in a land seemingly untouched since prehistoric times.


Active Adventures

Whether you’re a watersports afficionado or prefer to keep your feet dry, Amanwana offers a world of adventure both on and offshore. Alongside watersports such as kayaking and paddleboarding, the camp’s own PADI Dive Centre caters to all levels of scuba divers – even complete novices – while snorkelling guides introduce the pristine universe beneath the waves. Trekking and cycling routes on Moyo take in the island’s breathtaking vistas, cascading limestone pools and bat cave, providing plenty of opportunities for wildlife encounters.


Wild Fauna

Known for its dynamic landscapes ranging from mountain to coast, jungle to reef – Moyo Satonda National Park is a haven for a vast variety of wildlife. Hilly tropical forests are home to the region’s wealth of colourful birdlife, including the endangered yellow-crested cockatoo (Cacatua sulphurea), sea eagles and ospreys. When exploring the island, you’re also likely to spot indigenous rusa deer, macaques and wild boar. Beneath the surface, discover a mesmerising array of corals and marine life, from kaleidoscopic reef fish to turtles, manta rays and whale sharks.
