We passed by this public park while walking in the old city. Nice place to rest and relax and maybe pose for some pictures with lovely green trees around. We also saw many bats flying there during morning

A surprisingly lovely garden whose benches and large shade trees offer a nice respite from the streets of Maputo. A wedding was taking place during our visit.
