An immersive traveling experience for those of us seeking a more meaningful connection with the places we travel to and the people we travel with.
Mussiro creates and delivers travel expeditions in Mozambique, we have a few signature trips to Maputo Special Reserve, Inhaca, Tofo, Vilankulos, Quissanga, Ilha de Moçambique, Kruger Park by Limpopo, but we can also design your own trip, as your own Space.
Try our Overlander (Safari truck) or our boat safaris and experience the true colors of Mozambique.
Mussiro refers to root, a sought-after forest special treasure that is mainly used in Northern Mozambique as a cure for diseases, for decorative purposes and also as to treat skin. It was also traditionally used by young women as a symbol to preserve their chastity.
Today even the current generations embrace Mussiro; a tradition that was started by their great grandparents. We picked the name Mussiro for our trips because we are committed to exposing the roots of Mozambique and not only it’s superficial face.
We are committed to making you feel at home through the safety and comfort of our expeditions while at the same time give you the natural and local flavor and embrace the diversity Mozambique has to offer. We believe in transformational travel, each route should be a delight not only for the eyes but for our souls.
We have Day Trips to Inhaca, Maputo Special Reserve, Kruger Park, Calanga Beach, and a few other. We also have 5 day beach hoping expeditions by Overlander and a few longer expeditions that take you all the way to the north, from Maputo to Quirimbas.
We also have a 3 day expedition that takes you to Kruger Park but using the Mozambican gates on the Limpopo Region.
We have Moz Art, our flagship tour in the Maputo, where you can learn how to design batiks, or wood carving. You can meet a traditional healer and apply Mussiro yourself 🙂
You will find Jose mostly on Maputo Special Reserve, Limpopo and Kruger Park, stay tuned.. you will notice when you hear that Portuguese or English word with that special Spanish accent… BENGA! 🙂
Born and raised in Maputo, Jacira had always been attracted to various forms of expression and art. She wants to show the other side of Maputo and our amazingly talented and welcoming people!
Alvaro Taruma was born in Inhaca, Álvaro is a writer, a poet, and natural host. He has a few books published and if you travel with Álvaro one of these days is very likely that you will become a character for his next book. 🙂
He is our tester, we send him loose to explore a new expedition, if he comes back then it might be safe to open a new signature trip there. It never happened that he didn’t come back, so far 🙂
You are most likely to find George at Maputo Special Reserve or Limpopo, he loves nature, wildlife, cars, and football. We have been trying to put all the four things together but it has been hard to teach lions to play football, but we will get there.
Genito (aka: Harry Potter) is one of the treasures of the Island of Mozambique where he was born and raised. No one knows the secrets of the island so well and caresses them as they deserve. Through the hands of Genito we explore the depths of this magical land
