Mozambique my travel experience and tips for Ilha de Moçambique

After telling you about the days spent in Malawi, I’m going to tell you about the second part of the trip, that is, what happened in Mozambique.

As I mentioned earlier, the approaching of these two destinations, namely Malawi and Mozambique’s coast, was not particularly well-liked because of the long distances that had to be traveled and which took time off our journey without offering us in transit , stages of particular interest that attenuated the long-lasting workloads.

We traveled for two full days on the first day we left Liwonde with a private van who took us to Chiponde, a border country where we contracted a passage with another private van for Cuamba, a small town where we spent the night guests on a mission, while on the second day we moved from Cuamba to Ilha de Moçambique, our first stop in Mozambique. The long path that has been dealt with in these two days does not offer stakes or landscapes of particular interest and it is this that makes it particularly heavy.

When we arrived at Ilha de Moçambique, however, we were able to refocus and spend two days on this charming island. Ilha, more simply called by the local population, is a tiny crescent-shaped island that measures just 3 kilometers in length and 500 in width, so it is very easy to visit entirely on foot. It is connected to the mainland by a three-and-a-half-mile bridge, which can only be crossed by non-heavy vehicles.

After her long and wide sketching, her head is a feature of the eye she is an island with two souls that summarize her story and her journey through the centuries. The northern part, that is, the quietest and sleepy one, is the part that tells more clearly the years of Portuguese colonialism.

It is here that there are all the historic buildings, almost all built between the beginning of the sixteenth and the end of the nineteenth century. Among these advice is the visit of Fortaleza de Sao Sebastiao, or the oldest stronghold still in excellent conservation conditions of sub-Saharan Africa, visit of the BIM bank office and the Colonial Administration offices, all magnificent testimonies of the centuries of colonialism.
