General
Pulau Moyo Hunting Park comprises two-thirds (22,250 ha) of the island Pulau Moyo, which lies a little north of Sumbawa. The marine park has been established to conserve 6,000 ha of the surrounding reefs and offers some of the most beautiful and untouched coral gardens in Nusa Tenggara. Equipment to explore the reefs can be rented on the island in Air Manis.
Pulau Moyo itself consists of dry savanna with thorny trees and patches of green forest. Wildlife which consists of wild boar, deer and buffalo can be easily spotted on the savanna.
