TRAVEL TO MAPUTO

swirl 2

Maputo, known as Lourenço Marques before independence, is the capital and largest city of Mozambique. It is also known as the Pearl of the Indian Ocean and the City of Acacias, as many of these beautiful trees line the city’s avenues. Founded as a port town by the Portuguese, the influence of travellers and traders from Africa, Asia, and Europe has made it a diverse and lively metropolis.

With its Mediterranean-style architecture and waterside setting, Maputo is easily one of Africa’s most attractive capitals. The friendly people include colourfully clad women hawking seafood and spices at the large Municipal market and vendors who are selling bananas and nuts in the shade of the palm trees. There are numerous shops, markets and museums well worth a visit.

Maputo's imposing Train Station is an architectural marvel. The dome was designed by an associate of Alexandre Gustav Eiffel (the well-known designer of the Eiffel Tower) although he never set foot in Mozambique.
