The capital of Mozambique, Maputo has grown up with contrasting cultural influences which have all contributed to her fascination.
Charming old world hotels, fine beaches, the best food ever with prawns and peri-peri chicken a hot favourite, coupled with a vibrant nightlife and some serious sport fishing combine to tempt every Tom, Dick and Harriet.

The friendly locals have selected the best of preceding Portuguese traditions and given them their own African twist. There is a wide choice of things to do for backpackers in Maputo including diving, fishing, snorkelling, scenic flights, nature walks and safaris.

History buffs can visit Maputo’s train station. One of the city’s most imposing buildings with astonishing wrought-iron lattice work, pillars and verandas gracing the pistachio-green exterior or pop in to the Natural History Museum, to see the fascinating display of what is probably the region’s only collection of elephant foetuses.

Once you've seen it all - head down to the Restaurante Costa do Sol, an infamous beachside place that draws the crowds with an array of seafood dishes and grills, with prawns the speciality.

Tummy full, turn in to the centrally located, Fatima’s Mozambique Backpackers or a breezy room just 50m from the beach, at Maputo Backpackers.
