Work

Unemployment in Southern Africa is high and finding work is difficult. There are few opportunities for getting work in the region and those that do exist must be arranged through a company well in advance of your visit to the country. In most cases, to work legally you will not be able to do so on a tourist visa and will instead have to obtain a work visa or permit.

Most opportunities are usually in the fields of aid, conservation and tourism (such as working in a lodge or hotel, as a tour guide, as a diving instructor...); the latter sector is the one most likely to be looking for skilled overseas workers at shorter notice.
