The Republic of Mozambique is a sovereign country located in south-eastern Africa bordered by the Indian Ocean to the east, Tanzania to the north, Malawi and Zambia to the northwest; Zimbabwe to the west and Swaziland and South Africa to the southwest.
Mozambique was explored by Vasco da Gama in 1498 and colonized by Portugal in 1505. By 1510, the Portuguese had control of all of the former Arab sultanates on the east African coast.
From about 1500, Portuguese trading posts and forts became regular ports of call on the new route to the east.
