N'Gouja - Mayotte

La plage de N’Gouja est la plus célèbre de toute l’île... Et, si on s’y rend en semaine, la plus belle car la nature reprend ses droits, dans le calme.  Y passer toute une journée est un « incontournable » de tout séjour à Mayotte. Et si nager avec les tortues et s’allonger sur le sable clair, sous les baobabs, sont déjà un ravissement, ce ne sont pas les seuls plaisirs de ce petit paradis situé à l’extrême sud-ouest de « l’île au lagon ».

La plage de N’Gouja étale son sable clair le long d’une grande anse très légèrement incurvée, située sur la commune de Kani-Kéli. Une petite dizaine d’immenses baobabs, plantés majestueusement sur le sable, émergent de la végétation tropicale qui la borde. La clarté du sable donne à l’océan une magnifique couleur qui oscille entre le turquoise et le jade. Le long ponton en bois qui s’avance dans l’Océan, terminé par un faré, est le lieu le plus célèbre de toute l’île de Mayotte : il figure sur de nombreuses cartes postales.

This is an overview of Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.

The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.

Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.

In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.
