Location
Inhambane Province is located in the South of Mozambique, about 420 kms from capital city
Mozambique (Maputo). The capital of Inhambane Province lies on a natural formed by a deep inlet
at the mouth of the small Matumba River. Inhambane it’s the oldest extant settlement between
Maputo and Beira. By the end of the 16 century it had been incorporated into Portuguese East
Africa monopoly and had become a regular port of call for Portugues ivory-trade ships. Roughly
400 slaves were exported from Inhambane in 1762, a number that had quadruped by the end of that
decade while ivory export fugures steadily sank.
