Silversea Luxury Cruises A Maputo

Maputo

Maputo, formerly Portuguese-ruled Lourenço Marques, is the laid-back capital, an incongruous mix of palm-lined streets, an elegant promenade with ritzy villas, and once-grand colonial buildings—which often sit side-by-side with shanties and concrete, Soviet-style buildings dating back to the 1950s, when Russia and Cuba had a finger in the political pie here. An economic upturn since the end of the civil war in the late '90s has brought new investment in infrastructure, and buildings are rising at a fast pace, especially near the port. View more

From night markets and busy bars to informal eateries and classy restaurants, Maputo is known for its vibrant nightlife. The vibe here is decidedly urban and centered out of doors, with sophisticated dining, convivial cafés and bars, and plenty of live music. Check with your concierge or tour guide for the best and safest places.

Excursiones en Maputo

Maputo City Orientation

Departing the harbour, passing the beautiful Train Station which, built in 1910 by Gustav Eiffel, of Eiffel Tower fame, is definitely an architectural highlight of Maputo. You will then proceed to the local Maputo market for a glimpse of how the locals barter for a variety of goods and foods.


A focal point in the city is the Praca de Independencia or Independence Square. Around it are a statue of the country's first president, Samora Machel, the gleaming white Roman Catholic cathedral, the neo-classical City Hall and the French-Mozambican cultural centre, a splendid old colonial building which has been tastefully restored and now presents art exhibitions. You will also have the opportunity to take photos of the weird and wonderful concept of a house made entirely out of iron - very impractical for the hot African summers.


Continue to the Museum of Natural History where you will have the opportunity to explore the museum famous for housing the only elephant fetus in the world amongst a host of other interesting artifacts.


Next, continue to the Maputo Fort, one of the most visited attractions in the city. It was originally built in 1721 and destroyed and rebuilt by local people. Enjoy a look into the past, reviving old stories of corsairs and sailors.


Re-board your coach for the short ride back to the pier.


Please note: The cost of providing a tour program is proportionately more expensive than in neighbouring nations. Unfortunately this is reflected in the prices of the tours. Mozambique is a third world country and although it is a rewarding experience, it differs greatly from South Africa in all aspects. We thank your understanding. Some of the monuments and attractions en-route may fall under "military or state defence objects", therefore we kindly ask you not to take any pictures as this may result in serious problems ignoring these rules. Please ask your tour guides advice first. This tour involves a minimal amount of walking, and is not suitable for guests who utilise a wheelchair and those with limited mobility. We recommend wearing sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and comfortable walking shoes. The coaches although basic, are maintained and the quality can vary considerably. There is no formal guiding qualification required for Mozambique, and in order to support the local community we use local escorts/guides, many of them having previous experience in guiding for visiting cruise ships. Whilst the roads are tarred, there are many with potholes and a number of bumpy dirt roads, which will be navigated carefully. Traffic in the area can affect the overall tour schedule. Maputo is a fast moving developing country and changes to the itinerary may occur or sites may be replaced or changed. Order of sites visited can vary because of local conditions.

Town and High Tea at the Polana Hotel

Upon departing the harbour, you will pass the beautiful Train Station. Built in 1910 by Gustave Eiffel, architect of the Eiffel Tower, this landmark is definitely an architectural highlight of Maputo. You will then proceed past the local Maputo market, where the locals barter for a variety of goods and foods.


Transfer directly to the 5-star Polana Hotel, located in the upmarket Polana area. Here, enjoy a scrumptious high tea which includes a selection of freshly baked items and sandwiches.


Thereafter proceed to the focal point in the city, the Praca de Independencia or Independence Square. Around it are a statue of the country's first president, Samora Machel, the gleaming white Roman Catholic cathedral, the neo-classical City Hall and the French-Mozambican cultural centre, a splendid old colonial building which has been tastefully restored and now presents art exhibitions. You will also view the weird and wonderful concept of a house made entirely out of iron - very impractical for the hot African summers.


Continue on past the Tundura Gardens - located off Avenue Samora Machel as you make your way back to the quayside.
