Currently there are no visitor facilities at Mount Moco, although visitors may camp, with permission from the soba of the village, near Kanjonde village. Bring all your own supplies. Clean (not drinkable) running water is available from a small, clear stream that runs past the village.
Guides with limited Portuguese are available from Kanjonde to show you around the mountain.

Visitors are also encouraged to visit the administrator in Ussoque, to ask permission to visit the mountain, to reiterate how important the mountain is, and that it needs to be protected.
Most of the terrain is steep, so visitors should be reasonably fit to make the most of their stay. Make sure you have sturdy footwear.
Visitors are encouraged to respect the rights of local villagers. People are friendly and welcoming, but please visit the soba/chief as soon as arriving in the village, to explain why you are visiting, and to ask permission to access the mountain.
Children see few foreigners and are likely to hang around your campsite, so a high degree of patience may be required.
If you wish to bring the villagers a gift, please consider items such as books and pens, rather than sweets or alcohol.
