The Comoros - East Africa's Island Paradise

I spent ten days exploring the Comoros islands in East Africa (next to Madagascar), splitting my time between Grande Comore and Mohéli. On Grande Comore I visited Moroni, the beaches of the north, Lac Salé, and Chindini.

On Moheli I stayed at Laka Lodge in Nioumachoua, where I swam, snorkled with humpback whales and turtles, and enjoyed Moheli's perfect beaches. A true paradise!

Most beautiful Places in Comoros ||Mew Play

Comoros is a group of 4 islands off the African coast, on the eastern side, situated between the historic Mozambique and Madagascar, in the Indian Ocean. Although the country is sparsely populated, it is also one of the lesser known countries of Africa.

#Mount Karthala
What can be more intriguing than visiting the site of an active volcano, and one of the largest (7,746 ft) at that! It lies at the southern part of Ngazidja Island. Mt. Karthala, at Moroni the capital city of Comoros, houses the active volcano and hiking upto it to see the same, can be an enriching experience. The mountain here is also popular for some exquisite bird-watching.

#Mahore/Mayotte

This island is also called the island of the French, as its influence can be well noticed in the architecture. The unique selling point of this island are the white sandy clear beaches and scuba diving. Scuba diving can be a viable option at Mayotte, since all scuba divers can experience an array of aquatic wildlife underwater and bright coral reefs which make the diving experience memorable.

#Anjouan

Also known as Nzwani is said to be the most alluring of all the islands of Comoros. Anjouan is partly responsible for branding Comoros as the ‘Island of Perfumes’. The air is thick with the aroma of cloves and ‘ylang ylang’ flower. These are used to make essential oils, making Comoros one of the largest exporters of vanilla and spice. The place is truly enigmatic and intriguing.

#Dziancoudre Waterfall

This waterfall is located in Mutsamudu, Anjouna, is a place where serenity can be experienced. It is here too, that the aroma of ylang ylang and cloves can be smelled heavily.

#Shirazi Mosque in Domoni

One might easily surpass this place as of those, but this mosque is one of the oldest mosques in Comoros built by the Shirazis from Persia. The place is all about ancient architecture and historical importance.

The Comoros (/ˈkɒməroʊz/ (About this soundlisten); Arabic: جزر القمر‎, Juzur al-Qumur / Qamar), officially the Union of the Comoros (Comorian: Umoja wa Komori, French: Union des Comores, Arabic: الاتحاد القمري‎ al-Ittiḥād al-Qumurī / Qamarī), is an island country in the Indian Ocean located at the northern end of the Mozambique Channel off the eastern coast of Africa between northeastern Mozambique, the French region of Mayotte, and northwestern Madagascar. The capital and largest city in Comoros is Moroni. The religion of the majority of the population is Sunni Islam.

At 1,660 km2 (640 sq mi), excluding the contested island of Mayotte, the Comoros is the fourth-smallest African nation by area. The population, excluding Mayotte, is estimated at 832,322.[4][5] As a nation formed at a crossroads of different civilisations, the archipelago is noted for its diverse culture and history. The archipelago was first inhabited by Bantu speakers who came from East Africa, supplemented by Arab and Austronesian immigration.

The sovereign state is an archipelago consisting of three major islands and numerous smaller islands, all in the volcanic Comoro Islands. The major islands are commonly known by their French names: northwestern-most Grande Comore (Ngazidja), Mohéli (Mwali), and Anjouan (Nzwani). In addition, the country has a claim on a fourth major island, southeastern-most Mayotte (Maore), though Mayotte voted against independence from France in 1974, has never been administered by an independent Comoros government, and continues to be administered by France (currently as an overseas department). France has vetoed United Nations Security Council resolutions that would affirm Comorian sovereignty over the island.[6][7][8][9] In addition, Mayotte became an overseas department and a region of France in 2011 following a referendum passed overwhelmingly.

It became part of the French colonial empire in the end of 19th century before becoming independent in 1975. Since declaring independence, the country has experienced more than 20 coups d'état or attempted coups, with various heads of state assassinated.[10][11] Along with this constant political instability, the population of the Comoros lives with the worst income inequality of any nation, with a Gini coefficient over 60%, while also ranking in the worst quartile on the Human Development Index. As of 2008 about half the population lived below the international poverty line of US$1.25 a day.[12] The French insular region of Mayotte, which is the most prosperous territory in the Mozambique Channel, is the major destination for Comorian illegal immigrants who flee their country. The Comoros is a member state of the African Union, Francophonie, Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, Arab League (of which it is the southernmost state, being the only member state of the Arab League with a tropical climate and also entirely within the Southern Hemisphere) and the Indian Ocean Commission. Other countries near the Comoros are Tanzania to the northwest and the Seychelles to the northeast. Its capital is Moroni, on Grande Comore. The Union of the Comoros has three official languages—Comorian, Arabic, and French. (wikipedia)

What is COMOROS?!



I have made it safely to my 142nd country — the lovely African-island nation of COMOROS!

Nothing gets me more excited than visiting places like Comoros, which are completely hidden and overlooked by the world.

Truth be told, Comoros is booming with life and it has such a unique culture!!

Two Facebook friends, Hamza & Armel, picked me up at the Comoros main airport yesterday morning and have been driving me all over to visit the best places on the island. The people here in Comoros are so kind and welcoming, despite not speaking much English (everyone knows French as it was a French colony).

In this video, I have done my best to educate you a little bit about what life is like in Comoros. I hope you enjoy, and please, comment with any questions/thoughts/comments you may have!

Have you ever been to Comoros?

BULA from one of my all-time favorite countries -- FIJI!

I am here for a third visit -- but this time is just a 24 hours layover en route from Micronesia to Tuvalu -- so I decided to make a 5th episode of my favorite series, seeing how far I can maximize $100 in 24 hours!

Many people think that Fiji is so expensive (and it certainly can be)... but if you live like a local, then I find it to be cheaper than anywhere else in the Pacific.
