Book a hotel for your Maputo business trip
The best hotels in Maputo are located around the bay in the south of the city, overlooking clear waters flanked by lush greenery. The bay area is also home to the city’s business and cultural centre and is a short drive from the conveniently located inner-city airport. Maputo's harbour has important trade links to the rest of Africa and beyond, and it's from there that the city's commercial core has expanded. The Mozambican capital is a popular destination for pleasure, and business travellers can enjoy a range of water-based activities and culinary delights in the city on their downtime.
What makes Maputo an appealing destination for business travel?
A former part of the Portuguese empire, Mozambique bears a fascinating history that’s evident in its distinct architecture. As a major centre for business in southern Africa, many multinationals are based here. There's an important focus on logistics, IT and financial services. The city is great for business travel because so much is centred around the compact bay area, including the beautiful beaches. Also, enjoy fine dining that mixes Portuguese and African cuisine, and buy excellent wines from Portugal and South Africa.
