Kuwundi's Major Cities
MALAKO: The country's capital and largest city.
MOBANO: Considered to by Kuwundi's economic centre, Mobano is a mainly working class city and is the country's second largest.
LANOS: Located on the shores of Lake Jomée the city of Lanos is a bustling city which is considered to be the typical image of an African city; dusty streets, busy markets, endless slums and constant traffic epitomize this inland city.
WOMBOSA: Kuwundi's fourth largest city is one of the country's most "African" cities due to the fact that Wombosa had remained isolated from Dutch, German and French influence. Its buildings are mainly constructed of mud bricks and due to its location near the Swahali Desert it is known for its hot climate.
KWATUNGA: Kuwundi's fifth largest city looks more like a quiet town. Located on the banks of the Sembwasi River, Kwatunga's economy is reliant on fishing, foresting and tourism. Many tourists use Kwatunga as a base point for exploring the surrounding jungle.
FRENCHPORT: Located near the Mwasungu River Delta, Frenchport is a quaint town with small shops lining faded brick streets. The town is renowned for its ever changing climate and laid back atmosphere.
MASUWU: White sand beaches, turquoise waters and lush palm trees describe the town of Masuwu. Popular with tourists seeking to relax in the sun, Masuwu's beaches are lined with five star resorts and hotels. The town is also a major port.
FORT D'AFRIQUE: Located off the mainland on the island of Ile Saint Jean, Fort d'Afrique was originally founded as a defensive fort by the French to protect the colony from attack. However, today the town is a quiet retreat for those looking to learn about Kuwundi's colourful history and see one of the best preserved forts in Africa.
JOHANNSTAD: This small town is home to a large portion of Kuwunderlaaners (descendents of Dutch settlers). After the Netherlands left Kuwundi to the Germans many Dutch settlers who remained in Kuwundi decided to move inland and build a town. Today, the inhabitants of Johannstad are determined to keep the Kuwunderlaans language and traditions alive through learning programs, festivals and parades.
MACARÓ: Located near the Angolan border, Macaró has long been a Portuguese enclave. Although the Portuguese have never colonized
Kuwundi, many Portuguese settlers in Angola fled over the border during times of civil war and economic uncertainty. At first Macaró was eastablished as a temporary refugee camp but over time those who fled Angola have made Macaró their home. Today, the small town boasts many fine examples of Portuguese colonial architecture and is renowned for its excellent Portuguese cuisine and festivals.
