When you travel to Mozambique’s capital city of Maputo, it 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 colonial history and revolution? Maputo is a region of incredible history, late development and tourism and legends like Samora Machel.

The original name was 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 harbor 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.
