Maputo Special Reserve was once known has The Elephant Reserve, and it is one of the “Pearls” that Mozambique has to offer. It was created in the 60’s and saw the animal populations decrease during the civil war. This magic place is reborn with a new strength.

Where to stay in Maputo

Budget-friendly accommodations remain scarce in Maputo. Unless you choose a backpacker-style hostel, expect to pay steep prices even for mid-range lodgings. The largest cluster of accommodations can be found near the Avenida 24 Julho, a walking distance from the main train station, or around the waterfront promenade Avenida Marginal. Portuguese-style guesthouses and business hotels offer comfortable rooms with basic amenities, while chain establishments and boutique hotels situated in grandiose colonial-era buildings provide more luxury and additional services.
