Welcome to Maputo – the vibrant capitol city of Mozambique! Upon arrival at Maputo Airport, pick up your rental car and head to your hotel in Maputo where you stay for the next three nights. Maputo is the most developed place in Mozambique, with a wide selection of hotels and restaurants, well-stocked supermarkets, shady sidewalk cafes and a lively cultural scene. Stay in the Southern Sun Maputo, which is located on one of the beaches and is the ideal starting point to explore the city. Drive along the Jacaranda-lined streets in downtown Baixa which is made up of many buildings from the turn of the century. Admire the bronze CFM train station, the old fort and the Neoclassical Town Hall on Praça da Independência square.
