Inhambane: Culture and Tourism Sector Assesses Festive Season Positively

The culture and tourism sector in Inhambane province, southern Mozambique, has made a positive assessment of the movement registered during the past festive season, revealing that more than 40,000 tourists, both domestic and foreign, visited the region.

Speaking on Wednesday 3 January, the provincial director of Culture and Tourism, Emídio Nhantumbo, explained that of the total number of visitors, the majority came from South Africa and their preferred destinations were the districts of Vilankulo, Inhassoro, Massinga, Jangamo and the city of Inhambane.

“We have a positive assessment of the past festive season, with a satisfactory tourist movement that was not out of the ordinary. We received more tourists than expected. We haven’t yet managed to reconcile the figures with those of the Tax Authority due to the pressure of the activities, but we hope that this growth in visitors will also be reflected in terms of the revenue we will reap in December and January,” he clarified.

In terms of accommodation capacity, the source revealed that the province has more than 700 tourist resorts, adding that there is a need to create more spaces. “Last year, we managed to licence 32 new resorts, which added to the existing ones, increasing our capacity.”
