Comoros Travel and Tourism

Comoros Flag

Comoros , officially the Union of the Comoros is an island nation in the Indian Ocean, located off the eastern coast of Africa, on the northern end of the Mozambique Channel, between northern Madagascar and northeastern Mozambique. The nearest countries to the Comoros are Mozambique, Tanzania, Madagascar, and the Seychelles. It is the southernmost member state of the Arab League. At 1,862 km2 , the Comoros is the third-smallest African nation by area. And with a population estimated at 798,000, it is the sixth-smallest African nation by population—although it has one of the highest population densities in Africa. Its name derives from the Arabic word . The country officially consists of the four islands in the volcanic Comoros archipelago: Ngazidja , Mwali , Nzwani , and Mahoré , as well as many smaller islands. However, the government of the Union of the Comoros has never administered the island of Mayotte, which France considers an overseas community and still administers. Mayotte was the only island in the archipelago that voted against independence from France, and France has vetoed United Nations Security Council resolutions that would affirm Comorian sovereignty over the island. In addition, a 29 March 2009 referendum on Mayotte's becoming an overseas department of France in 2011 was passed overwhelmingly by the people of Mayotte. The archipelago is notable for its diverse culture and history, as a nation formed at the crossroads of many civilizations. Though in the contested island of Mayotte the sole official language is French, the "Union of the Comoros" has three official languages: Comorian , Arabic and French. The "Union of the Comoros" is the only state to be a member of each of the African Union, Francophonie, Organisation of the Islamic Conference, Arab League, and Indian Ocean Commission. However, it has had a troubled history since independence in 1975, marked by numerous coups d'état. About half the population live below the international poverty line of US$1.25 a day.

The best months to visit Comoros are between May and October - Moroni
The best months to visit Comoros are between May and October The wet season between November and April is not a particularly healthy time to visit Comoros. If you don't die from dehydration or sheer frustration at the oppressively humid conditions, you might find yourself caught in a monsoonal wind (kashkazi), or cyclone. The best time to visit is in the cooler months between May and October. In July and August plane tickets to the Comoros are expensive and hard to come by, thanks to expect Comorians returning from Europe for their annual holiday. During Ramadan, commencing between August and October till 2010, the collective Comoran temper can suffer from the double whammy of continual fasting and oppressive heat. Shops open for only a couple of hours a day in this period and ...

Various Attraction of Comoros - Domoni
Various Attraction of Comoros Diving The big hotels both run diving trips to the small coral islands and reefs south of Moheli, where you'll find magnificent white beaches and have a good chance to see nesting green sea turtles. To go independently, you'll need a CF1,000 permit from the police in Fomboni, and then have to bargain with boat owners in Nioumachoua to take you across to the islands. The most idyllic of the islands is Chissioua Ouenefou. Domoni On the east coast of Anjouan, the historic town of Domoni is the source of some of the Comoros' finest embroidery and woodcarving.
