Voice of Travelers to Comoros

New Experiences and Friendly People!

Comoros was a perfect choice for adventurers like us who wanted to explore somewhere new! We bought air tickets for a flight connecting through Nairobi, and boarded a Kenyan Airways flight to Grande Comore in the Comoros. The flight had excellent service. The plane landed in Moroni slightly ahead of the scheduled arrival time. We spent a few days relaxing by the pool in the hotel, a day sailing on and jumping off to swim in the crystal-clear water and a day snorkeling. On the last day, we had tasty local food and had interesting conversations with the locals we met. It was a wonderful time there.

Island Hopping in the Indian Ocean

I booked an air ticket on an Air Madagascar flight to Comoros. Wishing to travel to all three islands, I started the journey from Grande Comore. During the flight, I got to enjoy a great aerial view of Comoros from the window. I'm glad I chose an air ticket that flew during the day! As we arrived at Comoros, we saw the beautiful coastlines and lush interiors. The landscapes that I saw in Comoros are still clear in my mind. I already miss Comoros.
