Get Tips and Info on Life in Mozambique from South African Expats

Being an expat in Mozambique means much more than packing your belongings and taking care of paperwork. Keeping in touch with your South African compatriots is a big part of the expat experience and can help you understand the Mozambican people and their culture better. With InterNations, meeting other South Africans in Mozambique is a breeze, no matter if you are in Nampula, Maputo, Beira or any other expat magnet across the country. Just take our network of South Africans in Maputo, for example.

If you are in the mood to speak your mother tongue again, to learn about the best spots to shop for South African food, or to discuss your favorite sports team’s latest match, join the South African InterNations Community:

  • In our huge expat network, you can easily find like-minded expatriates from South Africa.
  • Our Mozambique Expat Forums are a great place to share experiences and advice – for example how to find a nanny speaking your language or where to get bobotie in Nampula...
  • The InterNations Places database for Mozambique helps you find institutions like the nearest South African embassy.

From the rugged highlands of Niassa, Namuli, Angonia, Tete and Makonde to the shores of Maputo Bay, we’ll get you in touch with helpful and friendly South African expats in Mozambique.

Our events cater to virtually all interests, ranging from a nice dinner with your fellow expats to enjoy some famous chamuças, Mozambique’s national dish, to large expat get-togethers with hundreds of guests in some of Maputo’s most exclusive locations. Looking for a weekend getaway? Simply join one of our expat excursions with a group of fellow South Africans in Maputo and discover hydro-electric dams on the Zambezi river, the underwater marine park near Bazaruto Archipelago, and other impressive landmarks across Mozambique.

Our events and activities are a great way of meeting fellow expats from South Africa and all around the globe in a casual atmosphere. Does this sound interesting to you?
