Read an Excerpt

AURORA MOZAMBIQUEThis culturally based project offers a rare opportunity to get close to some of the more traditional aspects of Mozambican culture. The mansion is set in an extensive orchard growing a selection of indigenous plants and trees, many of which are used to produce a range of oils which are available for purchase.There is a teacher training school based in an old seminary in the grounds, and they are also involved in training local people in the essentials of tourism. This ties in nicely with the cultural tours that are on offer: you can visit a local tailor and have clothes custom-made to a traditional African cut, learn how to make traditional Mozambican dishes, fashion the local pottery, or even play the tamboro – traditional African drums. Possibly the most interesting of the options is the chance to spend an afternoon with a medicine man. He will take you around the orchard, showing you the various plants and trees being grown there and explaining what they are used for and how they are prepared. This last option is unique – nowhere else in Mozambique could you have this kind of experience.
