    Walked out with a few items - difficult to resist the colourful items made and sold by locals there. They are great influencers. I have been to markets in many countries (including Asia) and the prices are not cheap here. Have to negotiate which is accepted.

    We have seen better markets, but that goes for almost everything in Maputo, so defenitely worth a look. Food and non-food here, lots of wigs.

    CCFM is a great place to go see live music. They often have live shows on weekday evenings as well as weekends; atmosphere is often very good and events are well attended. The CCFM also houses a French library where you can find a decent selection of French books for children and there are often art exhibits on display in the lobbies.

    At busy "Avenida 25 de Setembro", at the heart of Maputo's Baixa, you will notice the Brazilian flag at the top of a yellow building! This is "CCBM - Centro Cultural Brasil-Moçambique", inaugurated in 1989 and an active cultural center. It has an auditorium ("Auditório Vinícius de Moraes"), a library ("Biblioteca João Guimarães Rosa"), two art galleries ("Cândido Portinari" and "Djanira"), Portuguese classes for foreigners and a small café. In its efforts to strengthen the cultural ties between both countries, "CCBM" promotes film sessions, theater plays and art exhibitions. From its terrace, on the second floor, a nice view of Maputo's Baixa. Check its agenda and organize your visit. Enjoy!

    The mall is well positioned with lots of restaurants and some supermarkets. Parking can be difficult out front, but there is ample parking on the roof.

    It is a place where 4 design artists work and display their work (furniture, clothing, paintings, sculptures). It has a small but nice restaurant, in the back

    Just five blocks up from Avenida 24 de Julho is Janet market. Mainly locals go here to buy daily necessities such as fresh vegetables and fruit. In contrast to the big supermarkets one does not see a lot of imported produce from South Africa. For this reason prices are generally low. There is also a section where wine is sold. Wigs for sale are another eyecatcher.

    Casa Elefante seems to be listed twice here at different locations, but neither is where I found the store. I visited this store today on Avenida de 25 de Septembre quite close to the railway station. and next to Las Vegas bar. (I am posting this on both listings.)

    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND a visit. The choice is huge - both in type of fabric, pattern and colour. Fabarics range from suiting, pretty childrens' cottons, traditional African batik print capalanas (sarongs) to political prints (great souvenirs). The quality is superb and the value is excellent. Staff are extra helpful and will pull out as many pieces as you want to see. Everything they have is on display - you will be spoilt for choice!

    Over the course of my 5+ years living in Mozambique, I had a chance to take the Maputo Top 10 Walking Tour with Egas on multiple occasions, each time he and the other tour operators were able to keep it fun and meaningful. I recommended the tour to every visitor that came in town, whether their visit was for business or pleasure. Each tour the visitors came away with a deeper and richer understanding of the areas covered. I highly recommend this tour!
