Transcript of "Country Description - Mozambique"

  1. 1. EAST AFRICA: MOZAMBIQUE Capital: Largest city: Languages: Demonym: Currency: Calling code: Maputo Maputo Portugese Mozambican Mozambican Betical (MT) +258 Often described as one of Africa’s last frontiers, Mozambique, a large country in the southeastern part of the continent, is among the most variegated places in the world. Geographically, it has a rugged, underdeveloped north, a hiker’s paradise, along with an extensive coastline with innumerable opportunities for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving. The population is just as diverse, reflecting the indigenous African tribes who first settled there, the Arab seafarers who traded along the coast for centuries and, finally, Mozambique is slowly gaining a welldeserved reputation as a country that promises as much adventure as relaxation.

  2. 2. EAST AFRICA: MOZAMBIQUE As traveler’s lovely paradise, the country has one of the best Transfrontier Park: Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park. A massive swath of land that comprises national parks in Mozambique, South Africa, and Zimbabwe and allows visitors to cross the borders freely within the park, Limpopo is home to nearly 150 kinds of mammals, including elephants, giraffes, and buffalo. In northern Mozambique, tourists can also visit the Gorongosa National Park. This once legendary park was newly refurbished, it’s returning to its former preeminence and is worth a visit to check out impalas, warthogs, unusual birds, and more. Along the Zimbabwe border, there is a mountain range called Montes Chimanimani, thick with pine and mahogany trees and scores of medicinal plants, is ideal for rugged, off-the-beatenpath hiking and camping. Ilha de Moçambique, a tiny island off Mozambique’s northern coast was once an important Arab trading port; today its historic, colonial-era buildings and diverse population, with strong Islamic and African ties, makes it a fascinating place to explore. Another fabulous destination is Archipelago das Quirimbas, these 32 islands off the town of Pemba can be reached by motorboat, offer white-sand beaches, snorkeling among coral reefs, and sightings of humpback whales. Ponta de Ouro, just miles from the South African border in southern Mozambique is a quaint town which boasts some of the country’s loveliest beaches and opportunities to scuba dive among dolphins. Mozambique offer other amazing attractions for tourist like Lago Niassa (Lake Malawi), Manica, Angoche and local fare like the grilled prawns and octopus are especially good.
