More About Mozambique
As a former Portuguese colony, Mozambique carries a unique blend of vintage Portuguese culture and Mozambique’s own indigenous flavour. A young country liberated in 1975, Mozambique’s subtropical climate and lovely beaches make for a fantastic getaway. The breathtaking islands of Inhaca, Benguerra, Vilanculos and Medjumbe are local and international tourist favourites.
Seafood is a staple in Mozambique, so the fish market in Maputo is a must on your to-do list. You handpick whichever seafood you like, and they will cook it all for you. Some meats you might be familiar with (hake, oysters, prawns), but some you’ll have to take a risk and hope for the best. The trouble usually pays off, so not to worry.
