Welcome to Palma


The development is not without its problems. An 18,000-hectare 'gas city' is planned for the Palma area, but its roll-out has been hindered by a mixture of fluctuating world energy prices and controversial proposals to relocate large numbers of Palma's residents.

Palma sits on the coast nestled among coconut groves 45km south of the Tanzanian border. A melting pot of languages, with Makwe, Makonde, Mwani, Swahili and Portuguese all spoken, it doesn't hold many sights per se, and is usually used as a staging post on the way to Tanzania.
