What not to do when visiting Mozambique

1/6
Marker Mozambique
Business & Communication

Don’t forget to shake hands when greeting - handshakes are often given with both hands or with the left hand touching/holding the right upper arm (men). A handshake or nod of acknowledgement is common in most situations between women and men. Greet the most senior person first.

Don’t use left hand to give or receive the objects - always use both hands.

Don’t wear expensive shiny clothes and jewellery - keep a low profile to avoid extra attention and pickpockets.

Don’t necessarily leave the well-travelled roads - there still might be unmarked minefields away from the main roads in rural areas.
