Located in south eastern Africa, Mozambique is officially a Portuguese speaking country of about 24 million people. The majority of the population comprise people of Bantu origin. Mozambique is bordered by Zimbabwe to the west, Swaziland to the south, Malawi & Tanzania to the north and Madagascar to the east though both countries are separated by the Indian Ocean. The capital of Mozambique is Maputo.
Mozambique has in the recent past become a favorite tourist destination, thanks to political stability after decades of unrest and civil war. The discovery of oil and gas has led to an explosion in the number of foreign visitors visiting the country as investors, experts and advisors.
