Cultural experiences in Mozambique

Mozambique has a fascinating and unique culture, derived from its Bantu, Swahili and Portuguese history. There's an island with world heritage status, an interesting historical background, and a lively culture surrounding arts, cuisine and entertainment - Mozambique offers some excellent African cultural experiences.

For those interested in history, the world heritage site of Ilha de Mozambique is a fascinating destination and well worth a visit. This fortified city was once a Portuguese stronghold, and Stone Town boasts amazing architecture, including several churches, a museum and impressive colonial buildings.

Many lodges in Mozambique place emphasis on sustainable tourism and community involvement. This, in turn, offers the chance to visit communities and villages where you'll experience a warm welcome, learn about the culture and lifestyle, and be able to meet and interact with local people.
