African Century Real Estate is a Real Estate company with proven experience in construction and management of real estate enterprises in remote locations.

Our consulting services provide support to companies and institutions that want to invest or develop real estate projects throughout the country. As your partner in Mozambique, African Century Real Estate helps you overcome the challenges necessary to accomplish your investments and make them successful.

By developing our own high quality real estate portfolio in Mozambique, we were forced to develop our own regional network, supported by an experienced team. We have an extensive experience in working successfully in areas with few support infrastructures and in executing projects within the stipulated timings and budgets.

We were pioneers in many of our investments in northern Mozambique. The success of these investments helps to understand our experience in obtaining lands, managing all necessary approvals, construction, logistics and general project management.

“The continent is too large to describe. It is a veritable ocean, a separate planet, a varied, immensely rich cosmos. Only with the greatest simplification, for the sake of convenience, can we say ‘Africa’. In reality, except as a geographical appellation, Africa does not exist.”
