Flora Enthusiasts

Cycads and many other exotic indigenous plants can be admired in Maputo’s Tunduro Gardens, designed in 1885 by the English gardener, Thomas Honey. Ancient baobab trees, sometimes know as the “ upside down tree” because its branches look like roots, are to be found in Tete, Cabo Delgado and Inhambe provinces. They are closely linked by legends to the local people.
