Mozambique Travel Guide

The Maputo Experience

The vibrant city of Maputo (formerly Lourenco Marques) is the capital of Mozambique and was once all the rage for jetsetters in years gone by. Its exotic Portuguese colonial history and beauty drew many visitors prior to the civil war in the 1970s and 80s.

The war years took a heavy toll but Maputo is back in the spotlight and in the process of rejuvenation. Visitors to this Mozambique city can immerse themselves in the rich cultural heritage, architecture and customs while enjoying fresh peri-peri prawns and great local beer at numerous restaurants and hotels. The city enjoys a reputation for good nightlife with a variety of bars and discos.

The best time to visit the capital of Mozambique is during the dry winter months from April to September when the days are sunny and nights are cool - Maputo tends to be hot, wet and humid in summer from October to April.

Stay in Maputo

If you enjoy city lights, bustling nightlife, peri-peri prawns and spicy food served at road-side stalls, then a visit to the vibrant coastal city of Maputo is a must.
