MOZAMBIQUE | SIMPLICITY


Before arriving, I had no idea what to expect from this little-visited place in Southern Africa, we were filled with trepidation. We had no experience traveling in sub-Saharan Africa and the prospect of taking our first steps into the region was intimidating.

Especially because when we started researching Mozambique travel online, we quickly realized how few travel bloggers have gone to Mozambique, how few trip reports there are, and how, if you venture onto forums, you'll find dozens of people announcing how unsafe it is, We packed our bags and went anyway, because one of our favorite things to do when traveling is break the perception of a place.



Unfortunately, much of what we read was real, right at the country's border they tried to deceive us with a visa, we accused some of them to the guards, and they arrested him in front of us in a completely embarrassing situation that already left Lídia full of fear, after all, traveling In Africa, in some countries and places it takes a lot of courage and wisdom.

So why did we go? Well, mainly because we had already paid for my flights to visit Kruger and we were 12km away from the country. But also because we love showing the reality of places around the world. And among the horror stories I found online, there were so many breathless accounts of life-changing trips in a beautiful country full of welcoming inhabitants, which indeed they are, they like to speak good Portuguese, yes they speak Portuguese like us , but they also wanted to take photos with us, but some also asked for money to be able to photograph them.



Lídia found a mother with whom she could talk a little about motherhood, and she believes that the woman did not breastfeed because she had AIDS, a disease that affects not only Mozambique, but many African countries such as its neighbor Swaziland.

The dangerous situation kept us from traveling more around this country, yes, Mozambique is actually much bigger than it appears on the maps. The coastline, for example, is over 2500km long, which is approximately the same length as the east coast of the USA, or from São Paulo to Maceió by car.


We would like to encourage you all to travel around Mozambique, but at the moment we would only return there for volunteer work.
