Land tenure is obtained through usage rights and not traditional ownership. All land in Mozambique is state-owned, so both local and foreigner buyers merely own the right to use the land, initially for a period of 50 years (renewed every 50 years). Property on the land itself does not fall under this lease basis however, and thus can be sold, transferred or rented.
Mozambique has an interesting history, being under Portuguese rule for over four centuries before gaining independence in 1975. A protracted civil war soon followed, ending in 1992. Since then, the country has emerged as one of the world's fastest growing economies, which has seen major property development taking place over the last few years. The official language of the country is Portuguese but English is also widely spoken. Why not find out a bit more about property in Mozambique below?
Nature and conservation
With an exciting choice of nature reserves, protected parks, islands and archipelagos dotted off the coast, Mozambique provides wonderful opportunities for hiking, eco-tourism and cultural experiences.
Visit the tropical islands of Bazaruto and Benguerra, enjoy the tranquillity of the coastal town of Vilanculos or experience the vibrancy of Maputo. Whether inland or on the coast, you’re sure to find a place that feels like home.
Mozambique’s culinary heritage is flavourful and varied; a mix of both traditional Portuguese-style fare as well as other international influences. Spicy stews, delectable seafood dishes and a wide variety of fruits are the order of the day.
Boasting warm weather most of the year, Mozambique’s unique climate is a major attraction. The Indian Ocean provides a myriad of opportunities for diving, snorkelling, kayaking, fishing or simply holidaying in the shade of towering palm trees.
Most schools are found close to Mozambique’s busier regions or prominent cities such as Maputo and Nampula. Here you’ll find a choice of international schools offering private coeducation for students of all ages. The country is also home to a range of universities and technicons across various regions.
There are a number of doctors, clinics and private healthcare facilities spread across the country near all major cities, specifically along the coastal regions.
Enjoy delightful street-side shopping at arts and crafts markets or venture into a shopping centre for all your daily needs. More remote towns offer a more relaxed atmosphere with smaller convenience stores, ensuring everything you need is always close by.
The borders of this vast country connect with Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Zambia and South Africa. There are a number of airports in Mozambique, affording quick and convenient travel including Maputo International Airport in the southernmost region. One can also travel by car between cities, but make sure you’re in 4 wheel drive to cover the vast stretches of untarred roads characteristic of the more rural areas.
