More info about Maputo

Maputo – a melting pot of African, Chinese, Portuguese and Arab flavours, is undoubtedly one of Africa’s premier cities to discover and explore this year. World-class beaches, unspoiled nature reserves, bustling streets with romantic bistros in which to enjoy coffee or sundowners, and busy marketplaces to buy local hand-crafted items, fresh nuts and seafood: the sights and sounds of Maputo are undeniably magnificent. A day trip into the city brings you closer to a city and its people shaped by centuries of violence and resistance, recently re-born, re-energised and up-beat. Discover some of the finer historical and cultural attractions, including the Grand Train Station, with its ghostly rumours of the ‘missing Kruger millions’, and the old steamers still on the tracks for show. A mid-day cool-off in the shade of the beautiful Jardim Tundura botanical gardens provides welcome relief amidst the sub-tropical climate. Curious buildings, such as the Cathedral of Our Lady of Conception and the Iron House, built by Gustav Eifel (who also designed the Eifel Tower), are richly rewarding. The Maputo Elephant Reserve affords vistas of unspoiled plains inhabited by elephants and antelope. Maputo is the gateway to Mozambique: explore the serene beaches of Xai-Xai; snorkel or scuba dive the amazing reefs off the coast in the azure waters of the Indian Ocean; dive with Dolphins at Ponto Do Ouro; enjoy candle-lit dinners on the beach beneath the majestic canvas of night be-speckled with glittering stars that shine brightly in the fresh, unpolluted air of Mozambique; or arrange a deep-sea fishing adventure with a chartered boat. Maputo is the new dazzling portal to the sub-tropical African dream of a life time.
