Mozambique Travel and Tourism

Mozambique Flag

Mozambique, officially the Republic of Mozambique , is a country in southeastern Africa bordered by the Indian Ocean to the east, Tanzania to the north, Malawi and Zambia to the northwest, Zimbabwe to the west and Swaziland and South Africa to the southwest. It was explored by Vasco da Gama in 1498 and colonized by Portugal in 1505. By 1510, the Portuguese had virtual control of all of the former Swahili sultanates on the east African coast. From about 1500, Portuguese trading posts and forts became regular ports of call on the new route to the east. Mozambique became independent in 1975, to which it became the People's Republic of Mozambique shortly after, and was the scene of an intense civil war from 1977 to 1992. The country is a member of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries and the Commonwealth of Nations and an observer of the Francophonie. Mozambique was named by the Portuguese after Msumbiji, the Swahili name of Mozambique Island and port-town. Mozambique's life expectancy and infant mortality rates are both among the worst ranked in the world. Its Human Development Index is one of the lowest on earth.

Inhambane, Southern Mozambique - Inhambane
Inhambane, Southern Mozambique Inhambane, southern Mozambique, getting there and away by bus. There is a daily service back to Maputo. at 11 am, a bus from the north heads back to the capital. The bus arrives in Maputo at approximately 6 pm. I thought this would be a good thing to know if you don't want to get up too early to catch a bus back.Tip: Be there on time because the buses depart surprisingly on time. And you can choose a better place on the bus. Maybe it is also good to know that when you miss a bus, you can get a lift to the 'junta' terminal.
