WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
You will be collected from Inhambane Airport in Mozambique. The whale shark research project moves following the whale sharks. The project site varies with the seasons and whale shark movements can't be predicted months in advance. You need to keep in touch with us after you've booked your place and definitely contact us before you book your flight.
WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?
Your accommodation will be in a clean and comfortable beach hut situated on one of Mozambique's fabulous pristine beaches, where you can spend your evenings relaxing in the idyllic surroundings and getting to know your fellow volunteers. Internet may be on offer at an extra cost subject to availability.
WHAT WILL I BE EATING?
You will be provided with three delicious meals a day, except on Sunday, when volunteers cook for themselves. Dishes are based on locally sourced fresh food and your diet will consist of a variety of nutritious and delicious local specialities. 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!
