Comoro Islands:  TROPICAL PARADICE Waiting For you…

The union of Comoros is a group of three Islands: The island of Grand Comores, Moheli and Anjouan. The island of Mayotte is part of Comoro Islands but not of the union. Situated in the Mozambique channel on the east coast of Africa, the union is member of african union.

The insularity of the Comoros leads to many areas of natural beauty and an incredibly unusual landscape. The rate of endemism of terrestrial and marine fauna and flora, including algae, is very high. So it’s understandable that the Comoros sees ecotourism as a top priority.

Welcome To Comoro Islands

Here are just few reasons why to visit Comoro Islands:



    The forest is dense with a very varied make-up and numerous endemic species and subspecies.


    The flora is part of daily life and is used in many different spheres. Plants are used for food, for medicine, in artisanal cosmetics, in perfumes and decoration. There are more than 2,000 species of flora in the Comoros. The ylang ylang used in the perfume industry is an asset of the archipelago.


    Just like the flora, the fauna is diverse and balanced, although there are few large mammals. There are more than 24 species of reptiles including 12 endemic species. 1,200 species of insects and a hundred species of birds can be observed.


    The volcanic activity designed the coastline. Mangroves can be found across the islands. They are productive, providing organic materials and a habitat suitable for many species. Terrestrial, freshwater (birds, etc.), marine wildlife (fish, crustaceans, molluscs and various other invertebrates) are in the mangroves.


    Coral reefs are appealing for tourists. They are extraordinarily colourful, forming intriguingly shaped habitats and are home to numerous species of wildlife. The reefs are a fascinating world to explore when diving and are an important tourist draw for our visitors.


    Coastal and marine fauna of the Comoros is varied and includes species of global significance. The islands’ seas and coasts are home to truly extraordinary sights. There are about 820 species of saltwater fish, including the coelacanth, along with sea turtles, humpback whales and dolphins.


    Plants are both interesting and environmentally important because they support many fixed organisms and give refuge to many marine species.
