Mozambique emerges as tourist destination

Country boasts fine weather, beaches and African cultural heritage

Mozambique’s beautiful weather, beaches and African cultural heritage are helping to transform it from a victim of decades of conflict to an increasingly popular destination for tourists. The capital Maputo has experienced large-scale redevelopment and is lively with jazz bars and outdoor cafes and colonial-era architecture. The traditional local music is called marrabenta. A group of artists is working on recreating 800,000 of the wars’ machine guns, landmines and other weapons into pieces of art.
The country’s 2,500km of coastline by the warm Indian Ocean has many islands with breathtaking scenery and sunsets. The food is based on fishing, especially king-sized prawns.
