WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
You will be met at the Vilanculos airport by friendly local staff, who will accompany you to the project site by bus.
WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?
Throughout your project you will be staying in our small volunteer house based within a resort, which has a swimming pool, restaurant and bar. The accommodation is within easy walking distance of the stables and a short ride from the town centre. Vilanculos itself offers easy access to internet cafes, ATMs, supermarket, restaurants, bars and markets. You will also be provided with a laundry service.
WHAT WILL I BE EATING?
You will be provided with three meals a day throughout your project. Your diet will consist of a variety of nutritious and delicious local and western dishes. Mozambique food is a fascinating fusion of flavours and elements, combining European and African influences. Some delicious dishes to look out for include sopa de feijao verde, which is string bean soup, matata, which is clam and peanut stew, and dishes cooked with piri piri sauce – watch out, this means spicy!
