Health & safety
Walking around central Maputo during daytime hours is generally safe, and most tourists visit the city without mishap. However violent crime does occur. Be vigilant when out and about, avoid isolating situations and avoid the areas between Ave Patrice Lumumba and Ave 25 de Setembro, between Ave Friedrich Engels and Ave Marginal, and Ave Marginal between Praça Robert Mugabe and the Holiday Inn.
Always carry your passport.
