The Comoros are one of Africa’s biggest surprises. As well as Grande Comore, our tour includes Anjouan Island and Moheli, which has been described as a super-tranquil destination, a lost paradise. The Comoros islands are wrapped in a fragrant blend of ylang-ylang oil, Arabic aesthetics, African warmth and French chic. Not only this, but they have a colorful history of Sultans and soothsayers, plantation owners and eloping princesses.

Following a visit by our team, the Discovery tour now includes an extended stay at the excellent Laka Lodge. Located on the beautiful island of Mohéli we were very impressed with the Lodge's accommodation and the National Marine Park location. With comfortable beach front bungalows, good food and service and the most amazing of settings we know our clients will be equally impressed. Why not ask us about a tailormade itinerary, with a longer stay on Mohéli.

Alternatively we can easily combine your trip to the Comoros with a stopover in Tanzania or Kenya. Whether you fancy a few days to discover the Spice Island of Zanzibar, or for the perfect adventure, why not add in a safari. Just let us know what you have in mind and we will do the rest.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Moroni. Arrive in Moroni, capital of the Comoros Islands. The rest of the day is free to relax after your long flight or explore the town. Overnight: Le Moroni Hotel or similar.

Day 2: Full day exploration of Grande Comore. Full day tour of Grande Comore with private car/driver and English speaking guide, including visits to Mitsaniouli village, a Ylang-Ylang plantation, Lac Salé (salt lake) and Chomoni with its excellent beach. Overnight: Le Moroni Hotel or similar. Includes: (B, L).

Day 3: Anjouan. Transfer to the airport for the short flight to Anjouan. On arrival you will be met and taken on a guided tour of the island, widely accepted as the most beautiful of the three islands which make up the Union of the Comoros. Overnight: Al Amal Hotel or similar. Includes: (B, L).

Day 4: Anjouan. A free day to simply relax or independently explore the island’s capital, Mutsamudu. Overnight: Al Amal Hotel or similar. Includes: (B).

Day 5: Mohéli. Morning transfer to the airport for the flight to Mohéli. Depending on the airlines’ schedule a connection may be required in Moroni. On arrival you will be met and transferred to Laka Lodge, a small and intimate resort with its own beach. There are a number of optional excursions available including trips to some of the smaller islands nearby, and evening visits to watch turtles lay their eggs in the sand. Overnight: Laka Lodge. Includes: (B, D).

Days 6-7: Mohéli. Two free days to enjoy this beautiful island. We have not pre-arranged any sightseeing or activities as Mohéli is very easy to explore independently or optional excursions can be arranged directly with the lodge. Relax and enjoy the different pace of life and meet the friendly local people. If you are feeling a little more energetic, you can arrange a guided hike across the island on tracks of virgin rainforest.

Alternatively you can cycle around the island, on virtually empty roads. Then of course there are the beaches. Two of the most beautiful are Sambadjou and Nioumachoua. You can also snorkel to discover the rich marine life or even go whale and dolphin watching. Finally at certain times of the year you may be lucky enough to see giant turtles lay their eggs at night on Itsamia beaches. Overnight: Laka Lodge. Includes: (B, D).

Day 8: Return to Moroni with free time to explore this charming town further. We stay at a resort a few kilometres out of town, with its own private beach. Another chance to soak up the sun and swim in the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Overnight: Royal Itsandara Hotel or similar. Includes: (B).

Day 9: Free day in Moroni or Mt Karthala climb. Today you have the option of leaving Moroni for a climb to the summit of Mt Karthala (2,361 m). Although it is possible to do the climb in just one long day, we recommend that you camp at the summit in the crater itself and return the next day. For those not wishing to make the climb, you will have today and the next day to relax or perhaps enquire locally about the options to dive. Overnight: Royal Itsandara Hotel or similar/camping. Includes: (B–hotel, B, L, D–camping).

Day 10: Moroni. Your last day in the Comoros to either relax and unwind or take the opportunity to explore more of Grande Comore. Overnight: Royal Itsandara Hotel or similar. Includes: (B).

Day 11: Moroni. Tour ends. Includes: (B).
