Maputo City Tour Excursions à Maputo
Maputo City Tour: This important southern Indian Ocean port lies less than 100km (60 miles) from neighboring Swaziland and South Africa. With its subtropical climate, beautiful sheltered bay and blend of Portuguese architecture, African spontaneity and Indo/Portuguese/African cuisine, Maputo has retained much of its colonial mystique. Nightclubs swing to samba rhythms until dawn and a host of quiosques serve galinha piri-piri (chicken piri-piri), matapas (a cassava-leaf dish), and some of the best batatas fritas (fried potato chips) in the world. Hundreds of sidewalk cafés, dozens of nightclubs and the odd suit
This important southern Indian Ocean port lies less than 100km (60 miles) from neighboring Swaziland and South Africa. With its subtropical climate, beautiful sheltered bay and blend of Portuguese architecture, African spontaneity and Indo/Portuguese/African cuisine, Maputo has retained much of its colonial mystique. Nightclubs swing to samba rhythms until dawn and a host of quiosques serve galinha piri-piri (chicken piri-piri), matapas (a cassava-leaf dish), and some of the best batatas fritas (fried potato chips) in the world. Hundreds of sidewalk cafés, dozens of nightclubs and the odd suitably sleazy strip joint complement the vibrant atmosphere of this capital city that feels more Latin American than African.
Modeled on Portuguese harbor cities such as Lisbon and Porto, Maputo’s wide avenidas (avenues) are lined with pavements inlaid with black-and-white stone mosaics. Laid out in a grid pattern in 1847, the ‘long’ avenues extend at right angles to Avenida da Marginal while the ‘short’ avenues traverse Maputo Hill away from the bay. Her you can feel the fusion of wildlife culture and coast.
The city tour includes stops at the Fortress, Central Market, Museum of Natural History, Railway Station, which is definitely an architectural highlight of Maputo and the curio market (Feima). We will also pass by the City Hall, the Botanical garden and the Iron House, built by Gustave Eiffel. You will be given time to do some curio shopping en route.
Others: The Museums are closed in Mondays - alternative locations will be added to the tour has replacement.
