Responsible volunteering in Mozambique

This enigmatic and often-overlooked African country is unfailingly rewarding, with untouched, white sandy beaches, a diverse range of marine wildlife including sharks, manta rays and humpback whales, and welcoming people. Volunteers in Mozambique, home to some of the world’s finest scuba diving, are rarely disappointed.

Volunteer projects in Mozambique

Join world-class researchers in a spectacular diving location. Volunteers contribute to research supporting the conservation of whale sharks, manta rays and turtles. You will also work to preserve and repair the marine environment, focusing on activities in mangroves and the local estuary. All marine volunteers will become PADI certified and get involved with the local communities and fishing villages.

A unique opportunity to witness an incredible ocean migration in a stunning location. Tofo is one of the main areas of humpback whale breeding and calving, and the waters around the beach become home to these animals as they migrate north. Volunteers gather data on population numbers, individual animal identification, pod structure, and behaviour studies, to support international humpback whale conservation.

A perfect working holiday with horses in one of the world’s finest beach riding destinations. Ride on untouched, sandy beaches and stunning coastal trails, as you run horse safaris next to the turquoise Indian Ocean. Horse riding volunteers help with the care and often rehabilitation of rescued horses, assist with exercising and health checks, plus learn new riding skills and discover new cultures.
