My girlfriend and I are planning a trip to Mozambique (Tofo Beach) over Christmas/New Year this year.

We would fly home from Maputo at 9:20am on New Year's Day so need to stay in Maputo on New Year's Eve night so we figure why not join in the festivities?!

Does anybody know much about NYE celebrations in Maputo, particularly:

  • Is it safe to go out on the streets or is it better to go to an organised hotel event?
  • Any particular events that are worth attending and if you need to pre-book?
  • How easy is it to "wing it" and not book anything, e.g. are evening meals all on a pre-booked basis and are all parties pre-book only?

Thanks in advance!
