Moroni Travel Guide, Comoros

Tucked between Mozambique and the South-Eastern coast of Africa, the island nation of Comoros leads a rather secluded, but in no way uneventful existence. Although Comoros has gained its independence from France about thirty years ago, there have been no less than twenty coups in the country. Many potential tourists might be put off by Comoros’s ill fame of being one of the world’s poorest countries, but there are plenty of things to see that will make your visit worthwhile. Moroni, the country’s capital, is the largest and most developed city on the islands. Located on the western coast of the Grand Comore Island, it is a veritable paradise for beach-addicts. If you feel like getting away from the busy crowds, you can drop off the face of the planet for a while in Moroni. This Moroni Travel Guide will give you some information that will help you plan your holiday to Moroni.

Moroni Travel Guide - Transport

The only international airport on the islands, and one of the four airports in Comoros, is Prince Said Ibrahim International Airport. If you are planning to catch a flight from any other continent than Africa, you might have to rethink it. The only locations that have connections to Comoros are Seychelles, Reunion, Mauritius, Nairobi and Mayotte. You can find flights from Europe and the United States to these destinations. Austral Airlines, for example, operates flights from Paris to Mayotte and Reunion. You can also find a few cheap flights to Moroni from some nearby cities such as Antananarivo in Madagascar, or Blantyre in Malawi. If you are already on the continent, finding a way to get to Moroni will be far less difficult. Moroni is a seaport, so you can find boats that sail between the ports on the Eastern coast of Africa, and while your journey will take longer, you will get the chance to see some amazing sights.

Moroni Travel Guide - Accommodation

Villa Jessica near Kathala Volcano will be just perfect for tourists who are looking for an oasis of peace and quiet. Rooms are comfortable and, most importantly, air-conditioned, and the hotel has a lush tropical garden where you can feel far removed from the civilized world without having to expose yourself to the potential dangers of a trek in the jungle. The hotel’s restaurant serves a wide variety of seafood dishes and deliciously fresh tropical fruit. Hotel Le Moroni is a slightly more exclusive establishment with an international feel located in the heart of the city. Facilities include internet, cable TV, a bar and lounge, a summer terrace and a rather good restaurant which serves local and international cuisine. Hotel Itsandra Sun offers more or less the same amenities, but it has the advantage of being situated on a cliff overlooking the beach.
