Home Ports Mozambique Pomene


Pomene is a small town located in the Gaza Province of Mozambique. It lies on the Indian Ocean coast, approximately 300 kilometres north of the provincial capital of Xai-Xai. The town is surrounded by the Pomene National Reserve, a protected area of mangrove forests, wetlands, and coastal dunes. The area is home to a variety of wildlife, including the rare African wild dog.

Pomene was founded in the early 19th century by the Portuguese, who were looking to expand their colonial empire. The town quickly became an important port and trading centre, as well as a gateway to the interior of Mozambique. During the colonial period, it served as a major hub for the export of ivory and other goods.

In the late 19th century, the town was the site of a major battle between the Portuguese and the Nguni people, who were fighting for their independence. The Portuguese ultimately won the battle, but the Nguni people were able to maintain their autonomy in the region.

During the Mozambican War of Independence, which lasted from 1964 to 1974, Pomene was an important base for the FRELIMO guerrilla movement. After the war, the town was rebuilt and is now a popular tourist destination. The area is known for its beautiful beaches, as well as its rich cultural heritage.

Pomene is an important part of Mozambique's history, and its unique location makes it a great place to explore and experience the country's culture. The town is a reminder of the struggles of the past and the resilience of the people of Mozambique.
