A Guide to Accommodation, Activities, Restaurants & Businesses in Maputo, Mozambique

General Information

Maputo is located in its own region of Mozambique and is the country's capital.  Previously known as Lourenço Marques before its independence, many of the buildings in the city have scars from the civil war that raged in the country for years, giving the capital a slightly run-down feel to it.  However Maputo is slowly rebuilding itself and regaining its popularity as a tourist destination instead of a city en-route to the north.  

Maputo has a beautiful assortment of acacia trees which are commonly found along its streets and avenues, giving the capital its nickname of City of Acacias.  Today the economy is centered around its harbour as goods are imported, as well as from the toll road linking South Africa's metropolitan city Johannesburg.

Maputo is a hub of different cultures, with city life and laid back beach life combining to make an interesting city well worth a visit.  Tourists should definitely make Maputo a stop-over before heading to the more exotic north.
