Cheap flights from Comoros

The Union of the Comoros, or simply Comoros, is a sovereign archipelago island nation in the Indian Ocean. It is situated at the northern end of the Mozambique Channel, off the eastern coast of Africa, between Mozambique and Madagascar. Tanzania is to the northwest and Seychelles is to the northeast. The island has an area of 1,862 square kilometres, excluding the contested island of Mayotte. The four major islands are Grand Comore, Mohéli, Anjouan, and Mayotte. The volcanic Comoros archipelago also includes many of the surrounding smaller islands. The capital Moroni is located on Grand Comore. Comoros is one of the poorest countries in the world, so it's no surprise that public transportation system is very inadequate. On the island of Grand Comore, there is no public transport. The most common way of getting around is by hitchhiking, by renting a car, or by taking a taxi. Inter-island travel can be by air or by boat. Despite this, travellers do come to Comoros, if only for the ecotourism.
Where to go
Moheli Marine Park - Moheli Marine Park, or Parc Marin de Mohéli, is the sole national park in the Comoros. It was established in 19 April 2001, on the small and relatively clean (by Comorian standards) island of Mohéli. Tourists who would love to witness sea turtles and large marine animals such as dolphins and whales in their natural habitat can see them in the protected area of the national park. Bird-watchers will also have something to do, and might even catch sight of the rare mongoose lemur in the rainforest.
Mount Karthala - Mount Karthala is an active volcano in Grand Comore. At 2,361 m above mean sea level, it is the highest point of the Comoros. Karthala has erupted more than 20 times since the 10th century.
National Museum of Comoros - The National Museum of Comoros is located in Moroni. Established in 1989, it showcases the cultural heritage of the country. It has four exhibit rooms: History, Art, Archeology, and Religion; Volcanology and Earth Science; Oceanogrpahy and Natural Science; and Social and Cultural Anthropology.
