  • Description

    Description

    We are a pioneering ecolodge and community based ecotourism initiative with visions for the positive effects of nature based tourism. We are operating wilderness tourism and safari camps.

    Currently the main focus is on running an ecolodge in a wild jungle location. The accommodation set up is a semi-permanent tented camp with quite large tented rooms.

    The concept is to be extremely nature focused, it means minimal but attractive structures and facilities.

    Our staff are recruited from the local community and have no formal education and training. There are learning on the job. They are strong people who know the jungle but are not experienced with finer hospitality details before they start working with us.


    It would be useful for us to have assistance with important hotel type training. Developing standards and abilities for daily work work procedures so to make the visitor experience and satisfaction as good as possible.

    Besides the activities directly related to the handling of guests we would welcome a volunteer who has ability to assist with promotion activities such as video-editing, graphic design, web design, SEO, and similar.

    Are you a good cook? Our menu is based on local style food. Could you contribute with experience and ideas towards a fusion of local type and your vision of cooking. We cook mainly vegetarian.

    Can you teach our team how to prepare a beautiful room so guests are amazed... Supervise and improve ways of catering and give the ultimate beautiful experience amidst the wilderness...

    Information and an 'educational' element is a part of the experience we provide. Do you have experience as a naturalist or wildlife guide. In the field. Or developing training of nature guides... Then we might be interested in your help.
