Spring has sprung and it is time to shake off the winter blues…in Mozambique and 72-hours is all you need!
Dig into delicious seafood dishes, relax under palm trees and put on your dancing shoes to twirl to the jaunty tunes of the marrabenta in Mozambique’s capital city, Maputo.
From only R6 180* per person sharing, you can enjoy an unforgettable weekend break with Dana Tours to a city that wears its exotic Portuguese and African charm on its sleeve.
Conveniently located close to the airport, and a mere 5km from the city centre, you will stay at the Southern Sun Maputo hotel, providing the ideal choice for travellers to experience the perfect blend of warm hospitality, professional service, and some of the very best scenic views along the Indian Ocean seaboard.
Guests staying at the Southern Sun Maputo can also embark on a journey of discovery as a host of attractions can be found right on its doorstep. The capital city truly offers such diversity and heritage, there is plenty on offer to see and do.
For a laid-back day of relaxation, why not soak up the sun in front of the beach, located just metres away from the hotel. Alternatively there are plenty of kite surfing opportunities available in the bay and sporting events at the Machava Stadium.
Explore the fascinating Natural History Museum, where nature is brought to life, from the neon green watering holes to bleached elephant foetuses. The museum is housed inside a beautiful old building with nicely kept gardens. The collection includes many artefacts you would expect to find in a natural history museum, including descriptions of animal migration, ancient pottery, and a small ethnology exhibit.
Situated north of Ponta Malongane, the Maputo Elephant Reserve (Maputo Special Reserve), is characterised by its lakes, floodplains, mangrove swamps, woodlands and forested dunes sweeping down to unspoilt beaches.
Here visitors can view increasing numbers of game again. While the elephants are elusive and difficult to track down in the dense bush. Other animals you can also look out for include hippo, crocodile, nyala, red duiker, suni, vervet monkey and reedbuck.
The Reserve offers excellent opportunities for bird watching as several species reach the southern limit of their distribution in northern KwaZulu-Natal. Among these are Rudd’s Apalis, Woodward’s batis, Neergaard’s sunbird and Pink-throated twinspot. Commonly seen species include African Fish Eagle, Crested Guinea Fowl, Olive Bee-eater, Woodland Kingfisher, and White-helmeted Shrike, as well as Grey, trumpeter and Crowned Hornbills.
When the sun sets there is still plenty to look forward to with the city’s offering of night clubs, live jazz venues and cocktail bars.
