Comoros Holidays

The delightful Indian Ocean archipelago of the Comoros isn’t your obvious holiday destination. Almost like a low key Zanzibar – without the tourists – the Comoros combine the heritage of Swahili culture with dramatic scenery, atmospheric towns and small country charm to offer an utterly different side to this part of the world. This short Comoros tour covers the three islands that make up the republic, starting in Grande Comore where we wander through the old medina, discover colourful markets, visit old sultans’ palaces and see the impressive volcano of Mount Karthala. Travelling by boat to Moheli, we visit its spice gardens, and watch turtles lay eggs on the beach. In Anjouan, we explore the gorgeous countryside, stopping at waterfalls and lush valleys, before finally returning to Moroni, the capital. The Comoros may not have the ‘must-see’ sights and experiences of East Africa, but more than makes up for it with its easy-going nature, beautiful landscapes, and just the sheer sense of adventure in being in one of the least visited countries in the world.
