About Mozambique

In the early 1900's, Mozambique was a popular attraction to some of the world's top architects. Because of this, it is home to a cityscape with beautiful architectural art and detailed historical buildings like the Maputo Railway Station designed by an associate of Gustave Eiffel, the designer of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Spend a couple of days exploring Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, where you'll experience Mozambican culture and lifestyle first-hand. The Mozambicans are an especially friendly society, so take your time getting to know them and their world.

Maputo's cuisine invites you to taste the culture of Mozambique: stop into a European-style bar or restaurant, or shop the fish market on Avenue Marginal, and then ask a local restaurant chef to cook the high-quality catch to your liking! Maputo is also home to two of the most fantastic city markets: the Central Market and the Xipamine Market where you can wade through a variety of fruits, nuts, meats, fish, spices, traditional wares, healing potions, lucky charms, and even animal cures.

A coastal country of south-eastern Africa, Mozambique is a popular exotic vacation destination because of its picturesque white sand beaches, offshore islands, and coral reefs. Some of the best include Xai Xai beach, Inhaca Island, and Uembje Lagoon, a top destination for water sport aficionados. Mozambique's many beaches are a snorkeler's paradise, with some of the world's best dive sites where marine animals such as sharks, manta rays, lion fish, and other species can be spotted. A fisherman's utopia as well, Mozambique's deep coastal channels are ripe with marlin and sail fish, and hands-on opportunities for adventurous anglers abound.
