Mozambique - July 14th, 2011

This image shows the ragged coastline of northeastern Mozambique, near the border with Tanzania, in the provinces of Cabo Delgado (north) and Nampula (south).

Cabo Delgado is the northernmost province of Mozambique. It has an area of 77,867 km². Nampula, on the other hand,has an area of 81,606 km².

There is a great difference in the character of the coast north and south of Mozambique. To the north the coast is much indented, abounds in rocky headlands and rugged cliffs, with an almost continuous fringe of islands. In southern Mozambique, on the other hand, the coastline is low, sandy and contains swamps of East African mangroves.
