When thinking of an island nation associated with Africa, it is usually Madagascar that comes to mind. With a visit to Comoros, however, that may change.

This island archipelago is located in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Tanzania, and consist of three major islands.

Comoros is perfect for the adventurer. Take a 6-hour trek up to the Karthala volcanic crater, for example, to receive a stunning view of the archipelago. There are sulfur springs that can be discovered as well and it can become a multi-day backpacking adventure too.

Another great place for grand views is Lac Sale, which is a saltwater lake that appears to be located in an old crater. Perhaps you’ll see a pod of dolphins out along the coast as you explore as well.

Or you can make your way over to Moheli and view the giant sea turtles that come to lay their eggs on the beach. If you’re up for a difficult hike, try the Saint Antoine ridge to make is to an old colonial French home. It is steep and mostly uphill, but very rewarding if accomplished.

Some just choose to rent a vehicle and drive on the national roads, taking in the waterfalls, beaches, and old villages that are within easy reach.

Visiting Comoros can also be the perfect beach destination, with numerous opportunities to find a stretch of sand and relax underneath the warm sun. The choice is up to you. You’ll find that this island destination is far from ordinary.
