Prince Harry has made a surprise trip to Mozambique to campaign for better wildlife conservation in the country.

The Duke of Sussex traveled solo from California earlier this week for a short layover in his role as President of African Parks.

In pictures that have surfaced on Twitter, Harry was seen in the seaside town of Vilanculos dressed casually in a hat, polo shirt, shorts and trainers.

The popular seaside resort is the gateway to the islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago, known for their idyllic beaches and diverse marine life.

The Duke’s spokesman explained that Harry was co-hosting a group of US officials, conservationists and philanthropists on a tour of protected wildlife and natural areas.

It follows a visit to the South African nation in 2010 when he toured a minefield with the Halo Trust.

He donned a body armor 12 years ago on a trip commemorating the work of his late mother, Diana.

Harry and Meghan are preparing for one Whirlwind return to the UK early next month.

They are not expected to see Kate and William.

They will also travel to Germany for the Invictus Games Düsseldorf 2023 One Year to Go event.

Meanwhile, the royal family is preparing for Harry’s upcoming tell-all book, which he has vowed will be an “accurate and completely truthful” account of his life.

African Parks is one of the few private patronages Harry has retained following his retirement as senior working royal in 2020.

He has been working with the conservation organization since 2016, helping them relocate 500 elephants in Malawi.

The nonprofit charity manages around 20 national parks in partnership with governments and local communities in nearly a dozen countries, including Malawi, Zambia, Rwanda and Chad.
