So many good reasons to visit

Mozambique

Welcome to the latest edition of Destination Mozambique – a publication exclusively commissioned by INATUR.

Mozambique is already widely known to discerning and knowledgeable travellers. As a tourism board, however, INATUR aims to do even more to promote one of Africa’s most fascinating and complete destinations to a wider audience – and this guide is part of that effort. Those who have not yet visited our beautiful country will discover barely a footprint on our deserted soft-sand beaches, which stretch the entire length of our amazing 2,600 km coastline. We offer ocean-front boutique resorts, fine hotels in our main cities, the most awe-inspiring of natural landscapes as well as mesmerising marine life in the ocean and abundant wildlife in our newly restocked and revitalised national parks. In addition, I recommend that visitors sample our delicious and unique Portuguese/African fusion cuisine, such as our fiery peri-peri dishes and our wonderful seafood, straight from the ocean. Then, I believe we are blessed with some of Africa’s friendliest people, who always seem to wear the broadest of smiles. And let’s not forget our beer, our dance and our music – three more good reasons to visit Mozambique. At INATUR, we aim not only to make Mozambique better known as a destination but also to turn every visit to our country into a truly memorable experience. In addition to this publication, we have a website that is designed to make booking accommodation easy; and, once in Maputo, you can use the services of our new tourist information centre in the heart of the city. We would like to welcome you to Mozambique.

Introduction

Discover

an undiscovered land of wonder Mozambique is a destination like no other. With its Indian Ocean coast, vibrant cities and friendly people, combined with remote islands and opportunities for big game viewing, Mozambique is still a remarkably undiscovered country, even though it has all the components of a ‘must visit’ African destination.

plenty to offer each and every visitor, from the water sports enthusiast to the casual beach lounger. The sandy shores of its unspoilt coastline are punctuated by the occasional fishing village, thus helping to preserve the authenticity of this stretch of southern Africa.

For those keen to discover the undiscovered, a warm welcome awaits in Mozambique.

The archipelagos of Bazaruto and Quirimbas are home to some of the country’s best beaches, although little else. This region is delightfully underdeveloped, with only a few lodges and resorts to accommodate those who make the journey across the water to discover

these archipelagos and their national marine parks. The Portuguese heritage of Mozambique is evident in its architecture, cuisine and culture. As the only lusophone country in southern Africa, it offers something extra special for visitors compared with its immediate neighbours. Colonial architecture can be found throughout the country, from the capital, Maputo, to the Island of Mozambique,

now a Unesco World Heritage Site, with its stone buildings dating back as far as the 1600s. Many of the colonial buildings are now being restored to their former glory after the comparatively recent troubles in the late 20th century. The country’s national parks have also been undergoing restoration work to return them to their status as thriving wildlife hot spots. As part of a major effort in recent years, animals have been translocated from other parts of the region to help rebuild declining populations. Agreements set up with neighbouring states have led to the development of a series of transfrontier parks and conservation areas that allow the wildlife to roam freely. Perhaps the country’s most famous national park, Gorongosa, covering 4,000 sq km, is widely regarded as one of the best in southern Africa, with a range of spectacular wildlife including lions, elephants and crocodiles. Maputo, the thriving capital of Mozambique, is a hub of activity, from business facilities to international hotels to the acacia-lined avenues that give the city its unique Mediterranean style. Previously named Lourenço Marques,

after a Portuguese navigator who was sent to explore the area in the 1500s, Maputo is the most developed city in the country and offers an enticing combination of history, Art Deco buildings and sumptuous seafood, including the famous ‘LM’ prawns, also named after the explorer. This legendary dish is best enjoyed with one of Mozambique’s best beers, either 2M (pronounced ‘dosh-em’) or Laurentina.

Cities Outside the capital, other cities such as Matola, Beira and Nampula offer accommodation and conferencing facilities as well as places to simply soak up the Mozambican culture. Whichever part of Mozambique you choose to visit, a warm welcome is waiting for you, together with an unforgettable experience.

Mozambican Art

Visual arts reflect people’s ordeal – and pride Mozambique is blessed with a vibrant visual arts scene – one that documents the country’s vivid history from colonial times to independence to the modern day. The history of Mozambique has been varied and at times turbulent, from its early beginnings as a port of call for Chinese and Persian traders through to Portuguese rule and later to the civil war. These episodes of uncertainty and outside influence have given rise to an exciting and varied art scene – including paintings, drawings and sculptures – that charts the life of Mozambicans through the ages.

Malangatana Ngwenya, often known simply as Malangatana, is perhaps Mozambique’s most recognised and celebrated visual artist.

Charismatic This charismatic painter held his first exhibition at the age of 25 after developing an interest in art while working as a ballboy at a tennis club in Maputo (then Lourenço Marques). It wasn’t until 1981 however, when Malangatana was 45, that he began working full-time as an artist. Throughout his life, Malangatana received many awards and honours, including the Nachingwea Medal for Contribution to Mozambican Culture; the Unesco Artist for Peace title; and a Prince Claus Award for helping to inspire a progressive approach to culture and development. Malangatana’s dramatic works often depict the struggle of Mozambicans during the civil war, using faces and colour to highlight the ordeal that people were confronted with at the time. He

exhibited works in several countries and today his works are featured in collections around the world.

Chissano Alongside Malangatana, sculptor Alberto Mabungulane Chissano is considered one of Mozambique’s most important and influential artists. Chissano led the way for a generation of sculptors in the 1970s, a decade that spanned the last years of the colonial period and the beginning of Mozambican independence. Like Malangatana, his works reflect the history of Mozambique, especially its people; their struggle and suffering, but also their joy and pride. His sculptures, typically made using indigenous woods, rock, stone and iron, were displayed at his family home in Matola, which he converted into the Museu Galeria Chissano. In 1982 Chissano was awarded the Nachingwea Medal for extraordinary merit. DESTINATION MOZAMBIQUE | FOURTH EDITION

Music

Vibrant music is legacy of a rich history

Music, song and dance have long acted as vital forms of expression and communication, shaping the cultural profile of Mozambique and its people. The rich history of Mozambique and its diverse culture have produced music and dance in many manifestations for a variety of purposes – everything from male initiation rites to holidays and festivals of celebration.

8

Mozambique’s music scene is a blend of styles that reflect its history of inward migration, from Arab traders to Zulu warriors to Portuguese colonisers. Further influences can be attributed to the music of Cuba, introduced after independence by arriving Cuban doctors, and the Brazilian dance called maxixe, named after the city in Inhambane Province. These varied influences can be heard in a range of musical styles across the country.

Voice and percussion are particularly strong across all genres of Mozambican music, as in other traditional African styles. One of the core percussion instruments in Mozambican music is the timbila, a type of xylophone that originates with the Chopi people of Inhambane Province. It is often played in orchestras of up to 30 pieces with complex musical arrangements.

DESTINATION MOZAMBIQUE | FOURTH EDITION


In 2005 Unesco declared the timbila an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity because of its special place in the musical story of Mozambique.

Marrabenta Perhaps the most popular style of music across Mozambique is marrabenta, dating back to the 1930s but just as popular today. Taking its name from the Portuguese word ‘rebentar’, meaning ‘to break’, it is a fusion of Portuguese folk music and instruments, Western popular music and Mozambican rhythms. Among the most popular marrabenta artists are early exponents of the genre such as Wazimbo, Dilon Djindji – still going strong at 90 years old – and Fany Mpfumo, one of the founders of marrabenta.

Maputo’s annual Marrabenta Festival consists of musical events held throughout the city. Now in its 10th year, the festival is as popular as ever, with new and old marrabenta acts performing throughout, along with fun events, competitions and performances. The highlight of the festival is an acoustic musical train ride to Marracuene, where the finale takes the form of a lively outdoor concert that goes on until dawn.

Pandza Pandza is one of the newest styles of music in Mozambique, popular among young people. A mix of marrabenta and ragga (a type of reggae), pandza is also influenced by hip hop and usually sung in Portuguese and Shangaan, a language of the Tsonga people.

Islands & Beaches

Find heaven in your own sleepy lagoon If your idea of heaven is a crowd-free beach or a deep-blue lagoon then Mozambique is definitely the place to be. Not only does Mozambique have the third-longest coast in mainland Africa – about 2,600 km – but it’s filled with deserted powder-white beaches, lagoons, untouched islands and hideaway archipelagos.

Wildlife

A rich diversity of wildlife, on and offshore With its location in southern Africa and its long coastline, Mozambique is a hot spot of diversity, offering visitors an unforgettable wildlife experience. The country’s varied ecosystem has led to a wide range of habitats that support all kinds of remarkable wildlife and birdlife. Thanks to its combination of coastal coral reefs, national parks, mountains and wetlands, Mozambique is home to some of Africa’s most exciting wildlife, from rare animals seen nowhere else to large numbers of beautiful birds that draw visitors from around the world. For visitors, the opportunities range from swimming with whale sharks to safaris in Gorongosa National Park.

Marine life The coast of Mozambique stretches for over 2,600 km and is dotted with sandy

beaches and fishing villages. The warm waters of the Indian Ocean are home to an impressive range of marine life, with humpback whales and dolphins a regular sight. The elusive dugong (sea cow) is a rare treat for those who catch sight of this shy sea creature in the Bazaruto and Quirimbas archipelagos. Mozambique’s coral reefs provide great opportunities for snorkelling, with an abundance of tropical fish and a variety of turtles, including loggerheads and leatherbacks. Away from the coast, visitors will find an abundance of mammals, reptiles, amphibians and more, including Bohm’s zebra and Lichtenstein’s hartebeest. Gorongosa National Park, with its lion, elephant, crocodile and hippo populations, will meet the expectations of any safari enthusiast; while, for reptile enthusiasts, the Chimanimani Transfrontier

Conservation Area – with over 60 species on view including the endemic flat rock lizard – is the place to go.

Birdwatching Mozambique is a paradise for birdwatchers, with over 700 recorded species ranging from flamingos to hawks to herons. Alongside these beautiful but common birds, visitors can find rare species of avifauna such as the east coast akalat, green tinkerbird, oliveheaded weaver and Cape vulture. The sheer number of colourful birds – both common and rare – in Mozambique will surely impress both the avid birdwatcher and the novice naturalist. Among the best places to observe the country’s avifauna are the Bazaruto Archipelago, Gorongosa National Park, Mount Namuli, the Chimanimani Mountains and the wetlands of Banhine National Park.

Key advice for visitors to Mozambique BY NATALIE TENZER-SILVA

MOTORISTS

IN GENERAL

If you’re driving into Mozambique, it’s a good idea to consult the Mozambique Corridor Logistics Initiative website: www.mcli.co.za

1 Keep your passport with you at all

In brief, motorists should be aware of the following:

1 Drive on the left 2 Take all original car documents with

you to Mozambique. If the vehicle is owned by the bank, an original letter of authorisation from the bank is required.

3 Compulsory vehicle insurance must be taken out at the border.

times.

2 Visas for Mozambique should be

obtained in advance in your country of origin. Most nationalities can buy a 30-day single entry visa at the border or airport, but it could mean a long delay and we don’t recommend this option. Those nationals who do not have Mozambican consular representation in their country of origin should be able to buy visas at entry points. You should expect to pay between $85 and $125 for a single entry visa. If you do obtain your visa at the border, it will cost $82. Make sure you have change. Notes issued before 2006 and notes with markings are not accepted.

3 Visa and MasterCard are gener-

ally accepted in hotels and some

restaurants. Do not bring traveller’s cheques, Diners Club or American Express cards.

4 The local unit of currency is the metical (plural: meticais).

5 Money can be changed at banks or

bureaux de change. Do not change money in the street or with unlicensed operators. ATM machines are available for cash withdrawals, but only in local currency.

6 Comprehensive medical insurance

should be obtained in advance. There are private clinics in Maputo.

7 Malaria prophylaxis should be taken if visiting Mozambique. If you have visited a yellow fever infected area, be sure to bring your yellow card as proof of having had the vaccine.

MICE in Maputo

Maputo

is key MICE destination in Africa

Along with cities such as Nairobi, Cape Town and Dar es Salaam, Maputo is one of eastern and southern Africa’s top destinations for meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions – so-called MICE events. In competition with other MICE destinations in Africa, it can be hard for a city to shine through as unique; but the Mediterranean-style ambience of

Maputo, its picturesque acacia-lined avenues and its reputation as ‘The Pearl of the Indian Ocean’ make it a place worth visiting, not only as a tourist but also as a business guest.

JCICC As the nation’s capital, Maputo is the MICE centre of Mozambique, with the Joaquim Chissano International Con-

ference Centre (JCICC) at its heart. The award-winning conference centre can accommodate up to 1,000 delegates and has all the necessary technology and facilities to meet the needs of individual clients. The size of the conference centre and its versatile layout make it a perfect choice in Mozambique and the wider region for hosting anything from conferences to exhibitions to concerts.

MICE in Maputo JCICC also include parking, catering, photography, cultural activities and audio recordings to make each event run smoothly and professionally. In addition to JCICC, Maputo is home to other significant business venues. In the country’s blossoming hospitality sector, there are various upmarket hotels well equipped to host conferences, corporate events and even banquets. They include the Polana Serena, Pestana Romuva and Radisson Blu, as well as the Hotel Avenida and Hotel Tivoli, both owned by TD Hotels. Outside the capital, both Beira and Nampula can offer hotels and venues suitable for MICE events. Both cities have good hotels with conference facilities as well as airports nearby with flights to Maputo and beyond.

Festivals In addition to conferences, Mozambique – specifically Maputo – hosts a variety of arts and music festivals that bring together local and international guests and performers. One of the most exciting is Festival Azgo, a celebration of contemporary arts and culture held each May. Featuring artists from Mozambique and the rest of Africa, the two-day festival at Eduardo Mondlane University in Maputo includes programmes of music, film and dance. Maputo has also hosted sports events, notably the 2011 All-Africa Games, which saw the city step up to host the 10th edition of the event at short notice. The original host city, Lusaka in Zambia, withdrew its offer to host the games in 2008. The following year, Mozambique offered to take on the hosting duties;

Gorongosa National Park

Restored wildlife park is a top favourite Restored to its former glory, Gorongosa National Park is now regarded as one of the top 10 safari destinations in Africa. Thanks to a major effort in recent years to revive its wildlife populations, the park has become a ‘must see’ visitor destination. Covering 4,000 km in the central part of Mozambique, the park has an abundance of ecosystems as a result of the seasonal flooding of the valley. Its

20

diversity, ranging from grasslands to forests to plateaux, makes it a habitat for some of Africa’s most spectacular animals. But the star attraction for most visitors to the park is its birdlife, with over 400 species.

Revitalise Many will recall with sadness how some of the country’s most beautiful areas were disrupted and destroyed

back in the 1980s and 1990s. The intervening years have seen a huge effort by Mozambique, along with significant investment, to revitalise its wildlife and improve its natural areas. The main driver has been a partnership between the government and the Carr Foundation, a United States-based organisation set up by the philanthropist Gregory C. Carr. This has led to the reintroduction of wildlife to the area, the building of Chitengo Safari Camp

DESTINATION MOZAMBIQUE | FOURTH EDITION


Birdlife The star attraction for most visitors to the park is its birdlife

Gorongosa is an ideal destination for birdwatchers, with opportunities to view some of Africa’s most significant birds. Because of its varied landscapes, the park is home to hundreds of different bird species, most of which have survived the destruction of former times. The green-headed oriole, Swynnerton’s robin and Anchieta’s tchagra are just some of the remarkable birds to be found here.

Wildlife

The historical conflict led to a sad decline in wildlife. Once renowned for its variety of animals, Gorongosa was struggling to match its competitors. Over the past 20 years, however, animals have been reintroduced to Gorongosa, mainly from national parks in South Africa such as Kruger and iSimangaliso. This has gone a long way towards restoring the national park to its former glory.

and a general promotion of the park as a tourist destination. There is more than one good reason for visiting Gorongosa. In addition to the obvious attractions of its wildlife, birdlife and landscapes, those who visit the park are playing a key role in its conservation. The public can help in other ways, too – for example, by sponsoring a student, donating to the Lion Project or supporting the creation of a school garden.


Sports

From soccer to sea fishing –

Mozambicans love their sport

While Mozambique may not be one of the world’s sporting powerhouses, it is undeniable that sport is a big part of Mozambican culture, with a variety of sports and activities enjoyed by local people and tourists alike.

Organised sport Football – or soccer as it is also known here – is perhaps the most popular sport in Mozambique. The national team, identified by their nickname, ‘Os Mambas’ (The Mambas), have qualified for four Africa Cup of Nations tournaments, although never for a FIFA World Cup.

Os Mambas are currently ranked 106* out of 205 in the FIFA World Rankings; their highest-ever rating was 66 in 1997. Away from professional-standard matches, football is commonly played informally by groups of friends and by local teams when possible, although the professional league structure is still relatively underdeveloped.

for enthusiasts to indulge in the water sport of their choice. A popular holiday destination in the south of Mozambique is Xai-Xai, which is well known for the coral reef that runs parallel to the shore, providing first-rate opportunities for snorkelling. Other dive sites can be found around Matemo Island, Medjumbe Island and Vamizi Island.

Basketball, although not the most popular sport in Mozambique, is certainly performing quite well. The national basketball team is one of the most promising in Africa, having qualified for major international competitions including taking part in the FIBA Africa Championship (also known as AfroBasket) 13 times since 1981. In addition, the national basketball team won silver at the 2011 All-Africa Games.

Kite-surfing is another popular activity at the coast. There are various kite-surfing centres in Mozambique along with a choice of lagoon, beach or open-ocean locations.

Activities The geography of Mozambique offers an array of options for those who enjoy getting out and about without joining in an organised sport. With mile upon mile of Indian Ocean coast, there are plenty of opportunities

22

In a maritime context, too, fishing is one of the country’s most popular pastimes. It draws visitors from all over the world to take part in sport fishing. The vibrant marine life of the Mozambican coast includes black marlin, kingfish, barracuda, dorado and many more, making it a paradise for anglers. The scattering of islands off the mainland coast, including the Bazaruto and Quirimbas archipelagos, make for an excellent sailing destination, with many small and largely unexplored islands in the area.

Fishing is one of the country’s most popular pastimes. It draws visitors from all over the world to take part in sport fishing

Back on land, quad biking is a popular activity, thanks to the varied terrain of parts of Mozambique, especially Ponta do Ouro. If you prefer two wheels, group cycling tours are available. Or, if you prefer to explore at our own pace, it’s generally safe to cycle around without a guide or group. *Ranking correct as of January 2017.

Food

Good food & drink – the joy of Mozambique Mozambique has the reputation of being among the top food destinations in Africa – one that offers a type of cuisine that is both exciting and unique. The rich history of a nation, with its cultural influences, has inspired the modern-day Mozambican cuisine, with its fusion of fresh flavours and zingy spices coupled with creative cooking. The result is a choice of great-tasting dishes that will leave you desiring more of the same.

24

Access to a supply of fresh and excellent seafood is a feature of the East African coast, and Mozambique is no exception. The nation has a unique culinary offering, however, in the form of the LM prawn (short for Lourenço Marques, the former name of Maputo). Served fresh from the ocean and bursting with succulent flavour, LM prawns are justly famous.

in a variety of delicious forms. A popular dish is prawns served with peri-peri sauce, made from chillies, lemon, oil, red peppers and garlic along with spices such as paprika and pimento. In addition, peri-peri chicken, now popular in many other countries including the UK, is a Mozambican favourite, usually served with French fries.

There is no question that Mozambicans love eating prawns, which can be served

tion to the prawns. It’s hard to resist beach-barbecued fish – and there’s also crayfish, lobster and calamari. Inland, chambo (part of the tilapia family) from Lake Nyasa is very popular. The signature dish of Mozambique is matapa – especially popular in the south but available elsewhere, too. The dish is based on cassava leaves cooked in peanut sauce and usually served with prawns.

Thirst-quenchers

One of the nation’s most popular thirst-quenchers is the brand of beer known as 2M (pronounced ‘doysh-em’). Mozambicans always like it served ice-cold.

Delicious Portuguese-style white bread rolls called pão (pronounced ‘pow’) are delicious freshly baked and taste even better when they form the basis of a prego roll – a pão filled with steak covered in that famous peri-peri sauce. Cashew nuts are a favourite here – either as a snack or as part of a dish. It’s a legacy of Mozambique’s former status as one of the world’s leading producers of cashew nuts. Visitors can buy a bag of whole cashews from a street seller, while cashew-based dishes include caril de castanha (a nut stew) and bolo polana (a type of cake).

Fresh fruit The tropical climate of Mozambique has led to a mouth-watering range of fresh fruit such as papayas, coconuts, mangoes and avocados. The latter form the basis of one of the nation’s most popular dishes, salada pera de abacate (avocado and tomato salad), which is simple but tasty, especially when served with a lemon dressing.

Another ‘must try’ on your visit to Mozambique is Laurentina beer, named in honour of the Laurentinos (people of Lourenço Marques). This award-wining beer has variants such as the pale and dark versions.

Peri-peri good food If you love the sound of that Mozambican periperi sauce to accompany prawns, chicken or steak, why not try making your own? If you follow the basic steps, you can experiment and see what works for you.

For an even more exotic flavour, there is Tipo Tinto, a Mozambican rum made with tropical fruits and spices. This rum is usually mixed with a raspberry-flavoured soft drink called Sparberry to produce a thirst-quencher known as R&R – a lively blend of African and Mediterranean flavours.

INGREDIENTS: 100 ml olive oil 6 tbsp peri-peri chillies (finely chopped) 1.5 tsp paprika 1 garlic clove (crushed) 1 tsp salt 0.5 tsp chopped oregano (or thyme) 1 large lemon ( juiced). Put all the ingredients (except the olive oil) in a blender and mix until they form a paste. Slowly add the olive oil until the whole mixture becomes thick; then either serve or store until needed (it will last for a couple of weeks).

Architecture

A paradise for lovers of fine buildings One of the unexpected pleasures of visiting Mozambique is the chance to see and enjoy its unique architecture. Emerging from the nation’s own particular story of politics and people, it features a range of exciting and unusual designs. The most spectacular examples are to be found in the present-day capital, Maputo, where buildings were preserved in a kind of time warp during the civil war from 1977 to 1992. Today, visitors will find New Era public buildings from the time of Salazar’s regime side by side with communist architecture, while elsewhere they can see the distinctive motifs and colours of Art Deco. Young architects visiting Maputo are likely to be inspired by its sheer range and mixture of styles. Perhaps the city’s most famous architectural gem is the central railway station

26

of Caminhos de Ferro de Moçambique (CFM). This turn-of-the-century station building, with its pillars, verandas and wrought-iron lattice work and above all its splendid dome, has an aesthetic charm all of its own. Small wonder that it was chosen as the backdrop for a scene in the Leonardo DiCaprio film ‘Blood Diamond’. Today, the CFM station is used as a weekend venue for live music, with the platform area being pressed into service as a dance floor.

Cathedral For a fine example of ecclesiastical architecture in Maputo, visitors need look no further than the city’s concrete-built cathedral with its commanding single spire. Built in the so-called ziggurat style in the 1920s, the cathedral – full name Catedral Metropolitana de Nossa Senhora da Conceição (Metropolitan

Cathedral of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception) is located in Independence Square, which also contains the neoclassical city hall. Outside Maputo, too, visitors will find another centre of outstanding architecture in the former capital, Ilha de Moçambique (Island of Mozambique). Building techniques, styles, materials and aesthetics on this island have remained largely unchanged since the 16th century and the result is a fine selection of historical buildings. Now a Unesco World Heritage Site, this former Portuguese trading centre offers a scene of pastel-coloured colonial buildings and traditional artefacts that make a fascinating contrast with the present-day capital. It all adds up to a splendid monument and a worthy showcase for the unique architectural heritage of Mozambique.
