Emplacement & Temps libre
Gorogosa Park is located in Sofala Province in the center of Mozambique, about 1000 km away from the capital city of Mozambique (Maputo). Gorongoza National Park extends over the bracetygia-covered plains north of Beira Corridor to the south-eastern base of mount Gorongoza. Formerly regarded as one of the southern Africa’s finest wild life reserves, attracting over 12,000 visitors a year, with more game than the much larger Kruger National Park in South Africa, the area became central battleground during the Civil war ended in 1992. Since the war ended a lot of work has been done to reopen the park to visitors. Landmine have been lifted, bridges repaired and lodges rebuilt.
The workcamp participation fee is strictly US$250 and this covers simple accommodation, food and project expenses during the camp. Please note that this does not include travel expenses to and from the camp, so participants are asked to reserve a small amount of money for transport to the camp and vice-verse. Participants should arrive at least two days before the camp starts for orientation. It is also important to note that project locations may change due to several reasons some within (too few application, massive cancellations or community failing to make its contribution to the project’) and without our control (political instability, natural disasters). All volunteers who want to participate in this project will be invited to attend the preparation session (le week-end de préparation au départ) organised by Solidarités Jeunesses before their departure
