All Moivaro properties are renowned for their strategic locations at or nearby places of interest for tourists in Africa, mostly set in a natural environment. For example nearby national parks, beaches or so called ‘transit cities’. The properties can be divided in three categories: urban and suburban lodges, Bush lodges and tented camps, and beach resorts.
The accommodations differ in size, type, luxury-range and atmosphere, but they are the same in the sense that they always try to provide a ‘local African experience’. The aim is to emphasise the local culture, habits and surroundings by the setting, construction and operation of the lodges. As much as possible local products are used for constructing, cooking and decoration, and local staff is employed.
All Moivaro properties include a restaurant and bar service, and offer a varied range of activities that can be booked in advance, or at the lodge itself.
When Gijs started building his first lodge in Arusha, the first thing he did was build a nice big fence at the entrance. As soon as the fence was put up, people from the village started coming up to the fence to ask for work. At least 40 people per day. Old people, young people, uneducated people, educated people, they were all looking for a job. And that’s when Gijs realised this is how he could contribute: by creating as many jobs for these people as possible. He set out on his mission to train these people and to empower them to take care of their own lives, their children and families.
And that is what we have been doing ever since.
What started as a dream, with only 1 lodge and 4 jobs created, has grown into a large company, with hundreds of employees on the payroll and a spin-off to the wider community. Over the years it has become our strong believe that giving people the opportunity to learn, work, and grow is the best way to help fight against poverty and to empower the people. We hope to be able to train many more people in the future, and provide them with many more jobs!
Moivaro has three main objectives in all it’s undertakings:
1) To contribute to better lives in Africa by providing ten thousand jobs with a spin-off to the wider community.
2) To give guests an exceptional Africa experience with good value for money.
3) To create intercultural exchange and understanding through the hospitality industry in Africa.
By staying at a Moivaro property, you can be assured you contribute to the lives of many African people!
