Hotel's setting in Tete is near Mozambique attractions
Originally a Swahili trade centre and then a Portuguese colony, Tete is the largest city on the Zambezi River. The hot, steamy climate prompts visitors to embark on excursions to cooler nearby attractions, such as the Cahora Bassa, a remarkable dam that creates Africa's tenth-largest body of water. Also near the hotel's location in Tete, Mozambique is Boroma Church, a 19th-century Jesuit construction. To soak up some local colour, settle in at one of the riverside restaurants or bars to refresh with a drink. For some travellers, the river itself proves to be the area's most fascinating attraction, serving as both the locals' laundry station and a habitat for crocodiles and hippopotamuses.
