The Nampula Province in the upper regions of Mozambique was officially called Moçambique during the days of Portuguese colonial rule. When the country gained independence in the year 1975, Mozambique was adopted as its new name and so the province was renamed after its capital, Nampula. The province is famous for its stunning landscape on a vast scale, verdant inland plains which stretch for kilometres, punctuated by the odd, enormous rocky Iselberg landscape.
