There are so many reasons to love Inhambane, Mozambique.

Inhambane is a lovely city situated on the Southern tip of Mozambique, flanked by stretches of palm-waving golden beaches which makes this historical city a veritable tropical paradise, well-sought after by tourists from all over the world.

Visitors to this treasure trove are in for a pleasant surprise with the architecture and atmosphere that depicts a colourful and diverse past, reaching as far back as the 11th century. This is partly as a result of the Persian and Muslim traders as well as the Portuguese influence of Vasco da Gama across the centuries.

The port of Inhambane was a major trade centre for slave trade and ivory as well as whaling – perhaps not the proudest part of Inhambane’s history.

Inhambane is 469 kms from Maputo and a bustling tourist hub with a harbour, airport, shops, banks and more.

The town of Inhambane is quite small and easy to get around. The heartbeat of this town is the main market and the taxi rank; the market being a pleasant place to shop and stock up on fresh produce. Suffice to say, accommodation in Inhambane offers a little something for everyone; there are numerous excellent holiday resorts and plentiful other types of accommodation in Inhambane available.

Accommodation includes a broad spectrum of self-catering chalets, beach lodges and fine, up-market hotels; there is a great choice of guest houses, camping and more – the choice is yours.
