Practical Tips:

  1. Mozambicans are friendly, easy-going folk and are receptive to being approached by foreigners. Just remember to expect them to speak English as well as you speak Portuguese and you won't have any unpleasant surprises. 

  2. It is usual, and just good form generally, to treat people with respect and exchange social pleasantries before trying to extract information.

  3. Mozambique is a developing nation and as such, you can expect to see poverty-stricken areas and undeveloped spaces. These people deserve all the respect and dignity you would accord any other human being. Please don't reduce what can be an eye-opening cultural experience in a poverty safari by callously snapping pics of people and how they live. Ask permission and engage with the locals.

  4. Respect for elders is an incredibly important aspect of African culture and Mozambique is no exception. Be prepared to give up your seat and always treat elders and those in positions of authority with deference. 

  5. Be modest when visiting religious sites -  shoulders, torsos and thighs should be covered out of respect.

  6. You can expect to do a lot of walking so comfortable shoes you don't mind getting beat up are a good idea.

  7. You should expect to haggle over prices in markets for the best deals. Just don't overdo it. Many of these people make a living by selling their wares. Speak to other locals to find out what they usually pay for a particular good to find out if you'd be making a fool of yourself trying to bargain to a price below what locals pay. Be fair. 

  8. Prepare for an onslaught of mosquitoes. Buy or bring all the creams, sprays, candles and nets you can get your hands on.

  9. Avoid the tap water. The quality is inconsistent at best and sickness-inducing at worst. Buy bottles or bring a portable filter.

  10. Carry identification AT ALL TIMES. This is a law and it is strictly enforced. You must be able to present an identity document if a police officer requests it at any point.
