MORE ABOUT MOZAMBIQUE

Mozambique is a country with a 1,000km long coastline adjacent to the Indian Ocean in Southeastern Africa. It is bordered by South Africa, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Swaziland.

In 1500, the Portuguese established posts up and down the coast, starting with present day Ilha de Mozambique, where the Portuguese operated spice and slave routes from Mozambique up until 1891.

Following the end of World War 1, Portuguese investment in commercial, industrial, agricultural, educational, transportation, and health care infrastructure for the indigenous population started providing for better social and economic possibilities. This continued up to the country’s independence in 1975. The country is generally a low-lying plateau broken up by 25 rivers flowing into the Indian Ocean. The largest is the Zambezi, which provides access to central Africa. Mountain chains in the country’s interior form the backbone of the country.
