Mozambique Island was the first capital of Mozambique and you will discover many reminders of its history. Its past is influenced by a rich cultural impact of the Makua-Nahará people who have inhabited this land for many centuries. The influences of China, The Middle East, India, and Portugal are also evident to this day.
The Island of Mozambique offers to all who visit the chance to step back in time and enjoy its people and learn from its history as the people of this island posture for a bright and prosperous future.
When you book your stay at Rickshaws Pousada, a complimentary Rickshaw tour (in our own pedal-powered rickshaw!) of the historic landmarks and architecture of the island is included in your stay, as well as adventures in our ocean kayaks, and breath-taking sunset views from our grand patio.
Sailing excursions are available on Rickshaws own authentic island Dhow at an additional charge.
