Ngazidja
The largest island in the Comoros nation, Grande Comore offers secluded relaxation on serene beaches, diving and snorkeling, and exploration of its dramatic volcanic interior. The world's largest active volcano regularly erupts every dozen years, and the blast creates a peculiar desert landscape on the mountain itself--particularly suited for hiking and climbing. Sparsely populated and still relatively untouristed, sandy beaches in hues from bright white to molten black encircle the island set the scene for romantic Grande Comore holidays.

Tanzania travel guide

4.1
Safaris · Beaches · Scuba & Snorkeling
Though the size and scale of Tanzania may be overwhelming, the people make it a personable and easy-going place to visit. The bigger cities not only offer good connections to the main natural attractions, but also feature bustling markets where locals sell fresh produce, snacks, and crafts. Smaller villages retain their long-held customs, beliefs, and artistic traditions. With the continent's highest peak, and some of the most animal-rich safaris available, Tanzania holidays tend to dart between the big and bold, and the personal and low-key.
