Maputo & Inhaca Island


A melting pot of culture


Travel to Mozambique and visit Maputo with its subtropical climate, beautiful sheltered bay and blend of Portuguese architecture, African spontaneity and Indo/Portuguese/African cuisine. Maputo has retained much of its colonial mystique. Here nightclubs swing to samba rhythms till the break of dawn and a host of kiosks serve piri-piri chicken barbecued on the spot, matapas, fried potato chips and piping hot prawns. Hundreds of sidewalk cafes, dozens of nightclubs and a few sleazy strip joints complement the vibrant atmosphere of this capital city that feels more Latin American than African.

Modeled on Portuguese harbour cities such as Lisbon, Maputo features wide tree lined avenues with stone mosaic sidewalks. Magnificent architectural gems rise up alongside horrendous apartment blocks, where a goat tied up on the balcony is considered a common site. A hodge podge of the beautiful, the quaint, the old, the new, the poor and the rich, a mixture of cultures, of times and of religions. Maputo is a veritable melting pot and your experience here will always be a rich and rewarding one.

And out in Maputo Bay lies the small Inhaca island. The island is a secure and quiet location that is a port of call for yachts, sailing boats and cruise ships seeking out a tropical option in the turquoise and crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean.
