Holidays to Maputo & Surrounds

The capital of Mozambique, Maputo is also the country's largest zone of urban bustle. A pleasant port city, streets are lined with jacaranda and flame trees and seaside feel of the harbour is quite appealing. The vast majority of Maputo's buildings possess a nice aesthetic, complemented by the city's lively Mozambican character. Taking in the city sights is best done on foot, with pleasant colonial buildings, street-side cafes and plenty of markets to explore. However, if you enjoy electric nightlife then Maputo can deliver with various bars and restaurants to enjoy. Cuisine is particularly good in the city and recommended for anyone with a passion for seafood.
