Description

Mozambique is a country located on the southeast coast of Africa bordered by the Indian Ocean to the east, Tanzania to the north, Malawi and Zambia to the northwest, Zimbabwe to the west and Swaziland and South Africa to the southwest. It has 309,475 sq mi (801,537 km2) and the population is 'about 22 milions ???'.

Mozambique has a tropical climate with two seasons, a wet season from October to March and a dry season from April to September. Climatic conditions, however, vary depending on altitude. Rainfall is heavy along the coast and decreases in the north and south. Annual precipitation varies from 500 to 900 mm (19.7 to 35.4 in) depending on the region with an average of 590 mm (23.2 in). Cyclones are also common during the wet season. Average temperature ranges in Maputo are from 13 to 24 °C (55.4 to 75.2 °F) in July to 22 to 31 °C (71.6 to 87.8 °F) in February.

Cities, Towns & Villages

Mozambique is divided into ten provinces (provincias) and one capital city (cidade capital) with provincial status. The provinces are subdivided into 129 districts (distritos). The districts are further divided in 405 "Postos Administrativos" (Administrative Posts) and then into Localidades (Localities), the lowest geographical level of the central state administration. Since 1998, 43 "Municípios" (Municipalities) have been created in Mozambique.

1. Cabo Delgado : is the northernmost province of Mozambique. It has an area of 77,867 km² and a population of 1,650,270 (2006).

2. Gaza : It has an area of 75,709 km² and a population of 1,333,106 (2006).

3. Inhambane : is a province of Mozambique located on the coast in the southern part of the country. It has an area of 68,615 km² and a population of 1.412.349 (2006).

4. Manica : It has an area of 61,661 km² and a population of 1,359,923 (2006).

5. Maputo (city) : is the capital and largest city of Mozambique. It has an official population of approximately 1,244,227 (2006), but the actual population is estimated to be much higher because of slums and other unofficial settlements.

Highways

In 2005 the classificaion and numbering of highways was changed by the Diploma Ministerial nº 103/2005 de 01 de Junho de 2005 [1]. As of early 2013 the map contains a mix of both old and new road references.
