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 and welcoming people. Volunteers and adventurous travellers to Southern Mozambique, home of some of the world’s finest scuba diving, are rarely disappointed.
Southern Mozambique is home to some of the world’s best scuba diving, sea fishing and snorkelling spots, with endless coral reefs and shoals of colourful fish. The stretch of coast from Vilanculos to Tofu is where you’ll find the finest diving sites along the east coast of Africa. The Bazaruto Archipelago is considered one of the top 10 dive sites in the world.
Less than 1% of the world’s oceans are protected conservation areas, despite water covering more than 70% of the planet. The legendary great white shark and tiny seahorse have now joined elephants, tigers and rhino as some of the most threatened species in the world.
Conservation volunteering in Mozambique is an experience like no other. Forget game drives and dusty deserts and instead you’ll find laid-back beach resorts, small fishing communities and graceful dhows sailing on bright blue waters. Marine conservation volunteers are in huge demand in Mozambique. In return, the legendary beaches of Tofo and Barra are perfect for in-season sitings of whale shark, manta rays, sea turtles and large pods of humpback whale.

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.
Horse Riding Internship
A perfect working holiday 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.
