In April 2016 we have moved permanently from the city to start with the development of a new camp in the Zambezi Region, Namibia. We have decided that this will be our "retirement" project. After 10 months of hard work we are proud of what we have achieved so far with the help of the local workers.
Our camp consists of five camp sites and four self-catering cabins. This is also a bird lovers paradise with a variety of bird species in and around the camp.
We also have two Jack Russel terriers who are an integral part of our family and daily life.

This is a new small exclusive camp. Most of the construction is finished and now the daily chores are general maintenance of the camp sites and the cabins. Cleaning of the camp grounds and gardening/landscaping. You will also have to look after the camp on the rare occasions when we need to travel for business. Any carpentry/woodworking, paving and manual labour skills are most welcome.
Volunteers will be provided with 3 meals a day, however we are unable to provide for vegetarians, as fresh and good quality produce is hard to find in the local area and the closest shop is 150 kilometers away. Therefore meat forms the basis of many meals, as it is the main component of a Namibian diet.
Must love dogs.

They will benefit from staying in the bush and experiencing Africa at its best. Wild animals roam freely and we have also a great variety of bird life. They will be able to learn how to manage a camp and interact with different people. We will also serve dinners on request and they will learn how to cook traditional meals on an open fire. Depending on time spent here, the possibility of learning how to operate a boat on the river. Finally the general day requirements how to develop and maintain a bush camp.
