Do you want to experience the pearl of Africa? Mozambique is a large country in Southeast 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 is emerging as one of Africa’s rising stars, with an upbeat atmosphere, overflowing markets and a spectacular 2500km coastline waiting to be discovered. Sunshine, blue skies and temperatures averaging between 24°C and 35°C along the coast are the norm. The capital city is Maputo.
Mozambique is most famous for its palm-fringed coastline and blue waters full of unique and diverse wildlife. This makes it a world class destination for diving and for boat based safari activities. It is one of the few places in the world you can swim with whale sharks, the world’s largest fish! You can observe the Humpback Whale annual migration, if you’re lucky and see these majestic animals breaching the water! Other amazing marine fauna present include dolphins, turtles, manta rays, star fish, seahorses, and an abundance of colourful fish and coral reef. But, do not forget about to experience the amazing Mozambican culture and work with it’s very friendly people. No need to worry though about anything, because we will make sure you will stay and work in a beautiful and safe international intern and volunteer lodge at the beach. In our specific preparation meetings and in-country intro programme we will make you aware of all the do’s and don’ts. If you are up for the challenge, Let’s Go Mozambique will take you to the place to be! Projects within professional organisations that provide community development work and quality supervision. The great hospitality and openness of the people and the various opportunities to spend your free time will make you want to come back even before you have left Mozambique!
Quality of supervision and guidance: Roel will assist you with preparing your trip in the Netherlands. Supervision in Mozambique will mainly be provided by a trusted staff member within Let’s Go Africa’s partner organisation. We will ensure that these people are qualified professionals that aim to assist you with your project activities and school assignments whenever they can. The project staff in Mozambique will be informed in advance about your personal information, preferences, work plan, date of arrival, and length of stay. The supervisor of your project will introduce you to the Mozambican lifestyle and culture. They will make sure that you feel welcome, safe, and comfortable during the rest of your stay. In return for their hospitality we expect you to be very motivated to work together in a professional way and deal with cultural differences with respect in order to reach the desired results.
If any questions or concerns arise throughout your stay that cannot be resolved with the help of your local supervisor, Roel can assist and act as a mediator between you and the local people/authorities. Roel has personally experienced working, studying, and living in Southern Africa and he will do his utmost best to make sure you have an amazing Mozambican working experience!
