About Us

AT YOUR SERVICE

At Rascal we understand that our guests are looking for authentic, money-can’t-buy experiences. Come face-to-face with dragons in Komodo, snorkel alongside Manta rays, experience the warmth and diversity of the Indonesian people – these are just some highlights of our off-the-grid luxurious adventures.

We believe that the best experiences should sear the soul whilst also sustaining the stunning environment and people that help create those experiences. That’s why we’ve teamed with CI Conservation International, a global non-profit working to safeguard the earth’s precious ecosystems. Over the years, CI have helped protect more than 600 million hectares of land, marine and coastal area. Through our unique partnership with CI, we are able to offer specially curated adventures with CI teams for research or fact-finding explorations.
