Comoros

Comoros Overview

Comoros are a group of islands situated in the Indian Ocean between the mainland of Africa and the island country of Madagascar. Comoros consists of three main islands Anjouan, Grande Comore, and Moheli and several smaller islands. All the islands belonged to France until 1975.

Of the Comoros islands, Grand Comore is the largest and the most westerly island, dominated by a large active volcano, Mt Karthala. The sparsely populated island of Moheli is the smallest in the group and the least developed, with pristine tropical forest and secluded beaches. The most spectacular island is Anjouan.

CLIMATE

Comoros has a cool, dry climate from May through October. A hot, rainy season lasts from November through April.
