Trees4Moz is looking for a partner to help start up eco-tourism in the Nhamacoa Forest, in Manica Province, central Mozambique. If you are someone who loves nature and wildlife and are interested in saving endangered forests and the beautiful animals, birds, reptiles and butterflies that live in them, it would be great if you would join us and help us in our efforts.
The Nhamacoa is situated about 40 kms from the town of Chimoio and airport and a 2 hour drive to the Zimbabwe border and town of Mutare. Although small, the forest is full of the endangered Samango monkeys, as well as Vervets, bush babies and other animals. It’s good for birding, reptile safaris, lepidopterists, botanists and field studies. As well as this, we grow indigenous trees from seed to reforest and have several bee hives on site. We have renovated some old Portuguese houses built in 1958, during Colonial days, and there is a plunge pool and lapa in the process of being built.
No specific qualifications required, is therefore open to anyone who is interested. Marketing ability would be an advantage and enthusiasm and a love of nature and a strong desire to save forests and wildlife.
Whether or not you wish to relocate to Mozambique will be up to you. We are quite flexible and if you would like to only spend part of the year here with us, that would be possible. Financial input is needed, in the range of EUR15,000-20,000.
Our website www.Trees4Moz.org will give you an idea of our forest and work.
