- CELEBRATION IN MOHELI

1.Celebrations in Comoros means eating big. If you step foot on Mohéli in July or August, you will certainly have a chance to take part to a “Grand mariage” (literally great wedding), which festivities can last for more than a week. The most elaborate sometimes require more than 3 years of planning. Among the other different manifestations, you will see dances like the wadaha (women’s dance), the chigoma (men’s dance), or the diridji (men’s danse around a table). You will admire the jewels and beauty masks of the women. The gala evening is for both men and women, and you might be invited to dance along. The most spectacular of all certainly is the tam tam boeuf, where men defy a bull dancing before letting it go run in the streets.

2.There are many things to be done on Mohéli. The first is to relax and enjoy the different pace of life, talk to the people and listen to their beautiful stories. However, if you are looking for action packed adventure, you can hike across the island on tracks of virgin rainforest, accompanied by a guide. You can also cycle around the island, on virtually empty roads, to feel freer than ever. 

3.There are many beautiful beaches where you can swim. The most beautiful certainly are Sambadjou (Ouallah 2), Nioumachoua, and the beaches of the offshore islets. You should also snorkel to discover a very rich marine life within the marine park, or better yet, go look for whales and dolphins with our special eco-guides. If you don’t like being on a boat, you can at least watch giant sea turtles lay their eggs at night on Itsamia beaches.

4.The show also takes place on our beautiful forests, with hundreds of interesting plant species, some waterfalls, and the intriguing Livingstone bat, the biggest in the world. But you should not leave the island before having participated in some cultural activity, may it be a feast, a tam tam boeuf, or a bal poussière.
