About Inhambane Province
16 June Inhambane is City Day. The stretches over an area of 68,615sq.km. Inhambane province borders: Sofala & Manica provinces to the north, Gaza to the west, Indian Ocean to the south and east. The most represented ethnic groups are the Tsua (Tsonga) and the Chope. Population Density is 19inhabitants/sq .km.
The main trade in this province is agriculture and subsistence fishing, with the main products being: cashew, coconut and tangerines.
Inhambane is renowned for "Timbila" which is both a name of a percussion instrument and the name of a dance. The instrument, the "marimba chope" is similar to xylophone, and has keys, made out of "muenje" wood. They are hollow calabashes of varying sizes under the keys, which serve as a sound box.
The second oldest city of Mozambique where the Portuguese first anchored a few centuries ago.
To not visit Inhambane City is unforgivable. This city has a different mystic charm that you can only feel when wondering around the streets. Go and try to discover new sites, discover the old monument's from the Portuguese time, throw away behind some building…have a look at the Mosque, and do not miss the central market where one can browse for curious, like the colourful capulanas, the woven grass mats and bags as well as wood carvings and fresh cashew nuts, fresh fruit, vegetables and various seafood.
All the official buildings are at least a century old, like the Governor Building, City Council Building, Marine Building, Hospital, the Meteorology, and others. Always ask permission to take photos, since sometimes the security police on duty do not allow you.
As usual, when buying something you most barge until you think the price is right. Most of the Indians shops have leaves hanging at the door, these leaves are believed to charm clients into the shop and and to ward off those who come to cause trouble. If you happen to be in town during trading hours, don't worry, just ask for help, and someone will come to help you with your order. Siesta is very important practice in this town.
Inhambane is also known for it's great variety of species. It's home to over 40 different butterfly species and more of 500 species of birds. The area around the Inhambane Bay in particularly with various mud flats and the extensive mangrove swamps, is popular with bird watchers. There is a population of 250 greater flamingos, and on the outgoing tide whimbrels, turnstones and many other waders work the mud flats. The mangrove near Barra is home to egrets, purple-banded sunbirds and mangrove kingfishers. The stretches of dune forest that remain along the coast harbour the lilac-breasted roller, Burchell's coucal and grey and olive sunbirds..
Nearby Tofo is a seaside paradise, for both scuba divers and those who seek the idyllic beach - miles of unspoilt sand! A short bus ride from Inhambane, Tofo is the perfect destination, whether you want to dive the world famous manta reef, or would like to spend some time relaxing within the seaside village.
