“This trip was definitely a trip of a lifetime and a highlight of my time here in Africa. Mozambique is so different to South Africa and the way of life is so relaxed and welcoming. All the staff was very prepared for the trip and made it such a fun experience. This trip is something that everyone should do given the opportunity. I had the time of my life.”
“Mozambique was the most amazing trip I could have asked for. I thought the trip was incredibly well planned out, with the perfect amount of time spent in each place. It was the perfect balance of activity and relaxation. This vacation was perfect and I wish we could go back!!!!”
“I had initially gone to Mozambique to find a fun way to enjoy the holiday, but ultimately I had found myself. This trip was by far the greatest experience I have ever had in my life. Mozambique changed my entire perspective on the world and introduced me to a culture whose values are far different than the fast-paced American values I know.”
“The VAC Mozambique/Kruger trip was an incredible opportunity that gave us eye-opening experiences that we couldn’t have gotten anywhere else in the world. Coming from America to Cape Town and then Cape Town to Mozambique each gave a different sense of cultural awareness that really lets you see how unique every country is. The two weeks of the trip held such a wide range of things to do, that it feels like one of the greatest trips I’ve been on.”
“The VACorps MozKruger trip was the experience of a lifetime! Over 10 days we covered 1000 km of gorgeous South African and Mozambican scenery from the wilderness of Kruger National Park to the white sand beaches of Tofo and Morrungulo. I could never have done this trip without VAC and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to explore outside of Cape Town!”
Whilst participating in the Mozambique trip, I was able to establish more friendships with people I had yet to meet. Not only this but also I was able to adventure more and discover an entirely different part of Africa, the entire experience was surreal; from scuba diving to going on my first safari, there was never a dull day.
The MozKruger was INCREDIBLE. Mozambique is a hidden gem and the only way you will get to truly experience it is with the crew from VAC (I only say this because it would be so difficult and expensive without Sean & Jon (and Kim & Carmen!!!)…also, it wouldn’t be as fun). 100% get scuba certified and dive as many times as possible in Mozambique
The VACorps Mozambique and Kruger trip rough itinerary:
One night in Maputo, Mozambique: We will break our journey from Johannesburg by spending 1 night in the city, usually arriving late afternoon, and leaving early the next morning.
Three nights in Morrungulo Mozambique: Our accommodation sets us up on a big dune overlooking a crystal blue ocean and spectacular beach that extends as far as the eye can see in either direction. Here we have the option of diving or snorkeling the pristine coral reefs, spectacular sunset beach runs, hour-long swims in the warm ocean, long lazy days spent lounging on the beach or reading a book by the pool. In the evening we enjoy meals of freshly caught fish cooked on the open fire under the stars followed by a few drinks at the bar.
Four nights in Tofo, Mozambique: Tofo is a small yet lively sea-side village situated on a small peninsula, flanked by two stunning beaches. It is host to many wonderful restaurants, cafe’s and beach bars, as well as a vibrant market selling anything from freshly caught crayfish to custom-made sundresses. We stay a 5-minute walk from the beautiful Tofino beach, and world-class Tofino point surf spot. Tofo offers exceptional scuba diving, surfing, ATV tours, great nightlife and so much more. Included in your trip price is an Ocean Safari, where we hope to see and swim with whale sharks, dolphins, giant manta rays and humpbacked whales. Also included in your trip fee is a tour to Isla la Porka, where you will feast with the chief and his community in paradise, and enjoy a spectacular dow ride back to the mainland.
Two nights in the Kruger National Park, South Africa: The Kruger offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa. Our accommodation overlooks the park boundary and the Crocodile River. It is not unusual to see herds of elephants having their evening swim whilst we sit on the balcony to enjoy a sundowner. We enjoy a full day Safari in the park guided by professional game rangers. At night we settle down to a traditional South African braai (barbeque), and a few beers as we listen to the hippo’s gurgle and grunt in the river below us.
