Mozambique

Mozambique is a unique and inspiring country with lots to offer visitors, including the ancient Mozambican historical monuments, the renaissance beauty and fashion metropolis cities. The local currency used in Mozambique is Metica. The Portuguese named the country Moçambique after the Island of Mozambique. The island-town was the capital of the Portuguese colony until 1898, when it was moved South to Lourenço Marques (now Maputo).

Mozambique is located on the South-eastern coast of Africa and is bordered by Tanzania to the North, South Africa and Swaziland to the South, Zimbabwe to the West and Zambia and Malawi to the North-west. For almost two decades, many of these attractions were inaccessible due to a prolonged guerrilla war. Now Mozambique is one of Africa’s rising countries, with an upbeat atmosphere, overflowing markets and a 2500 km coastline just waiting to be discovered. If you are looking for a tame Mozambique, stay closer to the South, where roads and transport links (especially with neighbouring South Africa) are good and accommodation options are plenty.
