Info about Mozambique
Mozambique is situated on the eastern coast of Africa opposite the island of Madagascar. It has an extremely long coastline of warm tropical water, and the unique reef that stretches the entire coast is a Mecca for scuba divers. Mozambique was a colony of Portugal, with the first of the settlers arriving in 1498 AD. A brutal civil war followed the country gaining independence in 1975 and this is clearly visible in some areas. Becoming one of Africa’s success stories, Mozambique has a growing export market boosting its economy. Malaria is widespread and it is advisable to consult your doctor before you travel. The highway from Johannesburg is in reasonable condition, but the internal roads of Mozambique are in poor condition and require 4 x 4 vehicles. Johannesburg, Malawi and Zimbabwe have railway links to Mozambique, and several airlines serve Mozambique from neighbouring countries.
