The Republic of Mozambique is situated in the south-east of Africa, bordering the Indian Ocean and other african countries such as Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. There are more than 20 million people living in Mozambique, which in recent years has made a great effort to eradicate poverty and lift itself outside of third-world status. Its capital and most important city is Maputo.
Moxambique is a former colony of Portugal, which is the reason for Portuguese being the country's official language. Located in the south-east of Africa, the interior side of the country has a mountain range with peaks over 2500m of altitude, with the River Zambeze spliting the country in two.
One its major attraction, without doubt, are it's beaches, with their white sand and crystal clear waters. With prices so low, there has been much investment in the country in recent times, which has also been helped by increased earnings through tourism.
