Bird stamps from Comoro Islands.


The Comoro Islands or Comoros (Shikomori Komori; Arabic جزر القمر Juzur al-Qamar; French Les Comores) form an archipelago of volcanic islands situated off the south-east coast of Africa, to the east of Mozambique and north-west of Madagascar. They are divided between the sovereign state of the Comoros and the French overseas department of Mayotte. The islet of Banc du Geyser and the Glorioso Islands are sometimes included as part of the archipelago.

The Comoros are located in the Mozambique Channel to the north-west of Madagascar and facing Mozambique. These volcanic islands, covering a total area of 2034 km², are:

    Ngazidja (or Grande Comore): the largest island, with the capital of the Union of the Comoros, Moroni
    Ndzwani (or Anjouan)
    Mwali (or Mohéli)
    Maore (or Mayotte): under French administration, and including
    Pamanzi (or Petite Terre) Mayotte's second-largest island. Supports Mayotte's only airport in Dzaoudzi
    Banc Vailheu, or Raya, lies 20 km west of Grande Comore, is within 7m of the surface at low tide.

Two islets, have been considered part of this archipelago, by various sources, and at different times:

    The Banc du Geyser, a reef measuring 8 by 5 km in area, some parts of which are emergent, situated 130 km Northe North-East of Mayotte. It is claimed by Comoros, France and Madagascar.
    The Glorioso Islands (French Îles Glorieuses) were administratively attached to the archipelago before 1975, and, geologically speaking, form a part of the archipelago.
