INHAMBANE

Known as “the place with the friendly people” and situated in southern Mozambique is the quaint city of Inhambane. One of the oldest ports in east Africa, with settlements dating back to the 11th century this Portuguese influenced historic town is one worth visiting. Inhambane beach is absolutely stunning, with an abundance of palm trees covering the pristine soft sands and salt water mangroves forming the picturesque landscape.

If you’re a lover of idyllic sandy beaches, warm turquoise water and impressive tropical ocean life then this is the place for you. Marine life such as turtles, whale sharks, manta rays and dolphins are often spotted in this region.

For those who enjoy African history this is an ideal city for you, with Portuguese architecture from the colonial era influencing most buildings in the region, it is truly a unique African metropolis. The Lady of Conception, a 200 year old Cathedral, is well maintained and offers an opportunity to climb up rustic ladders to witness a magnificent view of the city harbour.

Additional activities in Inhambane include Dhow rides with locals in the tranquil Indian Ocean, visiting arts and crafts markets where you can purchase original African artwork at a minimal fee, listening to live music at vibrant seaside restaurants where xylophones are often played by locals and then going to the well-known Inhambane museum to get a better understanding of Mozambique’s rich history,
