MOÇAMBIQUE and VILANCULOS
Shortly after Vasco da Gama had anchored his ship in the island of Mozambique in 1498, it became a station and resting spot for, gold, ivory and slave’s trading. The Portuguese came to colonize this land in 1505 and for almost five centuries it was a Portuguese Colony.
Mozambique became independent on 25 of June 1975.
After a civil war that last until 1992, macro economic reforms, combined with donor assistance and multi-party elections have led to major improvements. Foreign Investment has increased export earnings. Tourism has been growing. Projects to bring back the Wildlife have been set up.
Today Mozambique can be described as one of southern Africa’s most political stable and fastest growing countries. Tourism is less developed than elsewhere in Southern Africa, but it is also unspoiled, with well-kept secrets in nature and culture and relatively safe for travelers.
