Mozambique, officially the Republic of Mozambique is a country in Southeast Africa bordered by the Indian Ocean to the east, Tanzania to the north, Malawi and Zambia to the northwest, Zimbabwe to the west, and Swaziland and South Africa to the southwest. It is separated from Madagascar by the Mozambique Channel to the east. Mozambique’s capital and largest city is Maputo.
Mozambique is one of the poorest and most underdeveloped countries in the world, but ironically it is endowed with rich and extensive natural resources. South Africa is Mozambique’s main trading partner and source of foreign direct investment. Belgium, Brazil, Portugal, and Spain are also among the country’s most important economic partners. The country’s economy is based largely on agriculture, but industry is growing, mainly food and beverages, chemical manufacturing, and aluminium and petroleum production. The country’s tourism sector is also growing.
The only official language of Mozambique is Portuguese, which is spoken mostly as a second language by about half of the population. Common native languages include Makhuwa, Sena, and Swahili. The country’s population of around 24 million is composed overwhelmingly of Bantu people.
Mozambique’s natural beauty and wildlife attracts visitors from every corner of the world. Mozambique’s culture too proves of great interest to visitors. Once a Portuguese colony, there is a mix of European and African influences through the country. May of the hotels are colonial era properties that in themselves are of great interest.
