Maputo Holiday Accommodation

Travel to Mozambique’s capital city, Maputo, brings back memories of historical milestones. Remember the name, Lourenco Marques, and enormous prawns and langoustines? Remember the likes of Winston Churchill and decades of war and destruction? Maputo is a region of war history, late development and tourism.

Maputo was named after the Portuguese trader Lourenço Marques who first reached the area around 1544. In 1895, a railroad linked the city to Pretoria and the gold-rush areas of South Africa and by 1907 it was the capital of Mozambique.

Renamed in 1975 at independence after decades of war and devastating destruction, a period of rejuvenation ensued, bringing the construction of large manufacturing, communications and commercial businesses to the city.

The largest port in the Indian Ocean, Maputo harbour is a source of Mozambique’s economic stability. Maputo is also one of Africa’s premier tourist destinations and the global influx of visitors has brought job creation and income for local communities.
