A tropical city stopover
Called the 'Havana of Africa' Maputo is considered to be one of the most beautiful capital cities in Africa
Maputo, the capital city of Mozambique, sits along the southern coastline of the Indian Ocean. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful capital cities in Africa with its Mediterranean style architecture and trees lined with cafes under vibrant red flame trees. The locals create a beautiful mosaic of men in pure white djellabas and women draped in folds of colorful fabrics. Lively markets are crowded with vendors hawking fresh seafood, fragrant spices and sweet, ripe bananas piled high on carts. There are endless museums, shops and galleries that give visitors a wonderful taste of the history and culture that makes Mozambique such a great country to explore.
Sit down at a sidewalk cafe and sample the delectable cuisine that intertwines the best of fresh local ingredients with strong Portuguese influences. Freshly caught seafood seasoned with spicy piri piri sauce followed by a cup of expertly roasted coffee is the perfect Maputo meal. After indulging in a delicious meal head out on the town to listen to a live music performance that blends Portuguese and African influences to create a fun, upbeat sound.
