See and do
Inhambane is one of the oldest cities in Mozambique and on of the oldest in Southern Africa. This gave rise to some wonderful architecture, such as that of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Conception. Do pay a visit to the mosque on Marginal Avenue and view the 380-year-old Koran they have. Vigilância Avenue houses the local museum where many wonderful old artefacts can be found as well as the old unmarked building next to the post office where slaves were kept until they were sold.
For the adventurer in you, the scuba diving is excellent on the nearby world famous Manta Reef and Gallaria, and very safe. Swim with the dolphins, giant manta rays, turtles, and whale sharks and marvel at the teeming marine life in the ocean here. Nature-lovers must visit the Bazaruto National Park, which is the largest sea park in Africa.
The larger curio shops are in the big cities, but the markets and roadside stalls are great for purchasing all kinds of souvenirs such as handicrafts, garments, and the brightly coloured landscapes by local artists, which are fast becoming collector’s items.
Public transport is practically non-existent although various buses run up the coast, and motor and dhow taxis offer transport between Maxixe and Inhambane.
