Formerly known as Lourenco Marques and Mozambique’s capital, Maputo is a bustling port city with wide avenues and a lively atmosphere. Jacaranda, flame and palm trees line the wide streets, vendors sell everything from paw paws to pots and pans and there are lots of street cafés serving spicy snacks under rainbow colored umbrellas. Situated on the Gulf, you can relax on sandy beaches with turquoise ocean views, alongside intriguing buildings like the railway station designed by Gustav Eiffel, splendid colonial palaces and lush botanical gardens. With a very active nightlife, locals meet in bars and restaurants to enjoy grilled prawns from the Delagoa Bay with piri-piri sauce or other local specialties.
