Cheap flights from Mayotte

The island country of Mayotte is like a paradise away from the busy city and its sometimes unhealthy surroundings. It consists of a large island flanked by a smaller landmass as well as several islets, which various neighbours and colonisers coveted for its strategic location and rich natural beauty. It was first conquered by Madagascar and then by other sultanates in the Comoros Islands. It was the French who have made a lasting impression in the island, however. The people living here chose to forego their independence and maintain a link with France, making Mayotte the farthest overseas European territory at present. 

 

Travellers going to Mayotte will find various places to appreciate nature. It has many forest reserves, which maintain ecosystems that can be wonderful to explore. Its wide coastline also shows a lot to love about its beaches, letting tourists enjoy a slice of peace and paradise in the clear waters, with the sky at the horizon. These, as well as the cultural attraction, can make a visit to remember. 

 

Where to go

Natural beauty is what Mayotte has in spades. Many of them can be found in Mamoudzou such as Mayotte Découverte, where one can explore the scenery by boat. Various marine creatures can be seen from the boat, such as whales going by at a distance with dolphins frolicking nearby. Another sight to enjoy is the Sea Blue Safari where one can relax by the shore and watch the gentle breeze form small waves. This peaceful sight can be wondrous to enjoy for travellers who love the beach.

 

Those exploring the landscape of the island will find biodiversity in the flora and fauna of the country. The tropical forests on the summits and ridges, as well as the wetlands, mangrove bays, and coasts host a large number of creatures. The Mayotte sunbird and drongo only make up a little portion of the endemic birds in the area. The brown lemurs and fruit bats can also be found here. That does not include the large coral reefs, where one can find more than 760 marine fishes, 500 marine arthropods, and much more. 

 

There is a lot that tourists will love when going to Kenya, a nearby country from Mayotte. One is Lake Nakuru National Park where one will find various wild species such as leopards and white rhinoceroses. Those looking for cultural tours can go to Lamu, which lets one look at the past of the Swahili culture that once ruled over a large swath of the Indian Ocean coast. One can also participate in a Masai Mara Walk which allows travellers to experience a stay in a tented lodge and interact with the Maasai people as they go about with their daily routines.

 

Travellers with the freedom to explore across the world can visit Lithuania, a Baltic country of many relatively underestimated sights. One of the landmarks to see here is Curonian Spit National Park where tourists can view museums, galleries, churches, and other establishments that grandly display the country's heritage. The sand dune landscape of the area is also fascinating to see, even though many areas are earmarked for ongoing reforestation efforts. Those eager to learn about Lithuanian history can visit Vilnius, which was once the political centre of the country from 13th to the end of the 18th century.
