Maputo and Inhaca Island

Mozambique's sprawling capital city, Maputo, is a bustling harbour city located in the south of the country. Once known as Lourenzo Marques, Maputo is a thriving African city featuring a distinctly Portuguese influence.

While political stability has returned to Mozambique, Maputo still shows signs of the decay and disrepair that took over during the civil war. Shiny new high-rise buildings contrast with broken down, dilapidated apartment blocks and the distinction between rich and poor is strikingly evident. The city is a veritable melting pot of old and new, and where rich and poor exist side by side.

We wouldn't recommend a lengthy stay here, but it is worth a stop-over on your way to one of Mozambique's other exceptional destinations. A visit to the fort of Nossa Senhora da Conceicao, the vibrant markets, and the many restaurants and bars where you can sample the local seafood and beer, are all well worth a visit if you're passing through.

Inhaca Island is a small island located just off the coast of Maputo. Easily accessed by boat or ferry from Maputo, Inhaca is a popular destination for snorkelling and diving enthusiasts. The island is also a popular port of call for yachts, sailing boats and cruise ships looking for a tropical stopover. Like all of Mozambique's islands, Inhaca offers lush vegetation, excellent beaches, warm tropical waters and spectacular coral reefs.
