Information from the Foreign Office about your Comoros trip:

The Comoros is an island nation in the Indian Ocean with around 830,000 inhabitants. They are located in southeast Africa between Mozambique and Madagascar. The island state consists of the three main islands Grande Comore, Anjouan and Moheli and a few small islands. The three official languages of the Comoros are Comorian, Arabic and French and the Comoros franc is used as the official national currency, with 1 euro corresponding to around 500 KMF.

The country's largest cities include Moroni, Mutsamadu, Domoni, Fomboni and Tsembehou. The majority of the population of the archipelago is Muslim.

All of the Comoros islands are of volcanic origin and therefore very mountainous. On the main island of Grande Comore lies the 2,361 meter high active volcano Karthala, which last erupted in 1977. The Comoros has a tropical-maritime climate, with a dense tropical rainforest and very low temperature fluctuations. The landscape is dominated by bananas, coconut palms and mango trees, while the coasts are mostly covered with mangroves. Rare species of monkeys, turtles and birds occur on the archipelago.

The economy on the island state is not very developed and is limited to agriculture, fishing and forestry. The Comoros' main exports are vanilla, cloves and ylang-ylang oil. Cassava, pepper, cocoa, corn, yams, sweet potatoes, bananas, rice, sisal and coconut palms are also grown for personal use.

The capital and largest city of the Comoros is Moroni with around 70,000 inhabitants. The city's most important sights include the Grand Mosque du Vendredi, the National Stadium, the Comorian Parliament, the university, the National Museum, the harbor, two Catholic churches and the Ahmed Mosque.

In March 2016 I traveled to the Comoros for three days from the neighboring island of Mayotte. As soon as you arrive, you realize that the island has some problems to overcome due to its remoteness and limited economic opportunities. Apart from a typical African market, there really isn't much to admire in Moroni. Unfortunately, the port area and many parts of the capital are quite neglected. Except for the main square in the city center, with some relatively modern bank buildings, the other surrounding buildings are already very old. Luckily, I found the only international restaurant in the city at this place.

Basically, the Comoros has a huge garbage problem, the likes of which I have rarely experienced on this scale. My island tour on Grande Comore was quite exciting due to the many plantations, the lush rainforest and some decent beaches and turned into a nice day trip.

After a somewhat disappointing stay, I then went back to Nairobi with Kenya Airways.
