Colonial past

Vasco da Gama first landed in Mozambique in southeastern Africa in 1498 during his voyage to the East via the Cape of Good Hope. Portugal occupied it seven years later. It took Mozambique 470 years to shake off the colonial rule and become an independent country.

Fight for freedom

During the long Portugese rule, Mozambique was no doubt thoroughly exploited. The alien rulers, however, were indirectly responsible for creating a hybrid culture that gave the country an exposure to new ideas. It inspired the country to fight for freedom that it eventually won in 1975.

The civil war

Mozambique was devastated during the 15-year long barbarous and brutal civil war that started in 1977. The civil war deprived the newly independent country from developing its economy and nurturing its tourism potential. After the war ended in1992,  a multi-party general election was held two years later and a stable government was formed. Mozambique has made considerable overall development since then and its tourism industry has started to flourish.

 

Flourishing tourism

Mozambique has tremendous potential for promoting tourism. The country’s long colonial history, beautiful landscapes, diverse topography,  the colorful lifestyle of its wonderful warm-hearted people make Mozambique a fascinating country to visit. This tourism potential is now being efficiently exploited for attracting cash-rich tourists from other countries. For the past few years Mozambique has become a popular tourist destination for foreign travelers.They take advantage of the country’s pleasant weather and sunshine for enjoying its long and rugged sand beaches,

Alluring beaches

Beaches are Mozambique’s most favourite hot-spots. These alluring beaches with pristine coral reefs, blue waters of the Indian Ocean and subtropical islands closeby attract travelers from far and wide. Lovers of water sports flock to this country to indulge in smimming, scuba driving, snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, sailing and dolphin tours.

Diverse culture

The cultural and linguistic diversity of the country is pretty pronounced. An observant visitor to the country would notice the subtle difference in the local inhabitants’ artistic preferences, the type of clothes and pattern of ornaments they wear. Each tribe also has its own musical traditions and distinct style of performing arts. This cultural diversity makes the country more attractive to travelers.

The capital city

Maputo is the capital of Mozambique and is a major port. The refreshing breeze coming from the sea prevents the temperature of the port city rising intolerably high.

Several cultures have influenced Maputo – neighboring South African being the strongest. Long Portuguese rule still dominate the culture of Mozambique. Traders from Arab countries, India and China have also left their cultural footprints. This confluence of different cultures has favorably affected the Maputo cuisine, making it both diverse and delicious. Blog sopper tappers

Maputo’s vibrant nightlife has addictive qualities. Travelers love to patronize its clubs, pubs and restaurants along the seafront serving excellent seafood, varieties of drinks and lively music.

Mozambique is smiling  again

Mozambique wasn’t a very cheerful place during the colonial rule. But Maputo – known then as Lourenco Marques – was always a vibrant city. Its exotic colonial history and the vibrancy of its borrowed lifestyle attracted international jetsetters before the independence and the civil war. They are now coming back to a peaceful and free country to enjoy its colorful cultural heritage, delicious seafood and local drinks. Mozambique’s ordeal is over and the country is smiling again. Come to this country, enjoy your visit and join the smiling brigade.
