A Maputo tailor made tour can be built in multiple ways. The city offers several options to those who visit this city. It is a small, geometric city, easy to navigate.
We recommend Bicycle rides (we rent bikes with and without a guide), on foot or by txopela.
The best days of the week to explore the city of Maputo are Saturday and Sunday because the city is empty and calm and becomes easier to get around.
It is very difficult to get lost in a tour in Maputo, the fact that the city is geometric makes you always find one of the main avenues.
Security is one of the concerns of those who visit us, but we can assure you that you are in a very safe city. Crime is very low. However, we must take the usual precautions like anywhere else in the world, not to walk on the street with valuables or large amounts of money.
The city, although safe, can sometimes be uncomfortable for foreigners. Do not forget that in Maputo it is easy for people to realize that you are new in town. This can create discomfort, but it should not be synonymous of insecurity.
In Maputo people still greet each other when they cross the street, it is one of the good habits that the world unfortunately is losing. If you do not speak Portuguese learn to say, “Good morning” and “Good evening”, which are the usual greetings.
The night life in Maputo, although not very diverse, can be quite lively. Try to know the cultural program on the days you will be in Maputo, there are always concerts and parties that you must go to. If there is no event, or if you simply want to go to regular spots you can go to 1908 (upstream) or to Feira Popular (mainstream).
There are several scripts available, and on our site. We offer you some possibilities that you can explore alone, but here’s one more suggestion that may be a draft over wich you may build your Maputo tailor made tour:
