InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Maputo

Hello to all Americans in Maputo! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Maputo? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Maputo which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Maputo has grown into one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Africa. The capital of Mozambique is a growing city known for its distinct, eclectic architecture, vibrant cultural scene, with many restaurants, music, and performance venues, its local film industry, and much more! With the network of buses, chapas (minibuses), and tuk tuks, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Sommerschield, Triunfo, or Polana Caniço, for example, which are all less than 15 km away from Maputo’s center.

Although Maputo has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Maputo, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
